Sometimes getting to the first page of important Google search results isn’t enough.  
 
In many cases, it’s even more valuable to get listed in the local map pack listings. Not only are those listings typically higher on the page than traditional organic listings, they are visually more compelling and have additional information like your phone number, reviews, address, hours, links to your website and directions.  
 
In most cases, local business/map results appear for users searching for businesses near their location. Google map results may appear for a variety of keyword searches, particularly those that include “near me”.   So how can you get more practice exposure in this section of all-important Google search results?   We will try to address this opportunity by answering some frequently asked questions about Google map listing.
 
“What is the difference between optimizing for map listings and traditional organic results?”
Strategies to get listed in Google’s local map pack are very different than trying to get high listing in the traditional organic results.  The main difference between Google map pack results and traditional organic...

graphic showing stages of the marketing funnelThe concept of the Buyer's Journey or Purchase Funnel is something that has guided marketing efforts for quite some time. If you’re not sure what the Buyer’s Journey is, then take a look at a previous blog post that explains the different parts of the journey and what strategies are applicable to each stage of the concept.

In this post I’m going to lay out some funnel-based campaigns for each of our syndications at Page 1 Solutions: Legal, Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dentists. However, these strategies can be applied to any business with some tweaking.

The one prerequisite for these campaigns to perform at their best is to have a good amount of assets that you can use for the various stages. For example: videos, blog posts, social media presence, landing pages, etc. all work together to enhance different phases of the buyer’s journey.

facebook is here to stay as a viable social media marketing channel

Last week, a Pew Research survey indicated that Americans are changing their relationship with Facebook. I did a brief write-up last week discussing why this might be happening, and what it means for brands and businesses that rely on the platform as part of their overall digital marketing strategy.

To recap, we have to keep in mind that Facebook is a product, albeit a very unique one. Facebook was truly groundbreaking, and it has largely and continually paved the way for the greater social media industry. But it is a product, and as with all products, there is an inherent life-cycle. Over time, we cannot expect that consumer perceptions of Facebook, nor our relationship with it, can remain unchanged forever.

And indeed, Facebook has in many ways lost its innocence. Negative perceptions of Facebook—and social media in general—have gradually...

Theodore Roosevelt said it best: “No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Even if President Roosevelt didn’t realize it, this statement couldn’t be more true to marketing. When you make an emotional connection with your potential clients, they are more likely to buy from you.

In the legal and medical industries, the question for many potential clients and patients becomes: Why? Why do I need veneers? Why do I need this lip filler? Why should I get a lawyer? If your answer is to automatically say, “Because it can improve your life,” I urge you to reevaluate. For a moment, step out of your professional shoes and into those of your client.

Rather than say “because you need it,” tell them why. Market yourself to their emotional side and say: “You told me that you were self-conscious about smiling. I KNOW we can change that with these veneers.” By being empathetic and showing an understanding of where your clients are coming from, you’re able to build a rapport.

Put Empathy in Action

By doing so, you’re able to show clients that you have their best interest at heart.  You’re able to do this by asking about their personal lives, taking an interest in them and really listening. Your clients will more than likely talk about their favorite subject: themselves. This allows for you to truly have your finger on the pulse. When...

Facebook has dominated the social media space and much of the greater online landscape for the last decade or more. Facebook essentially wrote the book on what it means to be a social media platform. At the end of the day, it is a product. And all products go through a life-cycle. Facebook may very well be entering into more of a maturity phase. It is inevitable to see a shift in user behavior and consumer perceptions of the platform. 

However, negative Facebook news seems to have accelerated change. Pew Research indicates Americans are changing their relationship with Facebook. This is particularly true with Millennials. Does this spell the end of Facebook's reign as a highly effective marketing channel? Not by a long shot.

In the last year, a number of events have triggered backlash against Facebook, largely amid controversies surrounding online privacy and ethical data usage. These are of course very legitimate and important concerns, but they are not confined solely...

For many years, the connection between search engine optimization and social media activity has been contentious at best. They seemed to exist on two different planes: Social media was largely confined to the platform(s) you used, while search rankings were influenced by hundreds of factors on and off of your website.

Google has said time and time again that social media signals are not a direct ranking factor in search results. But, certain social activities do correlate strongly with better search results.

So, whether you invest in social media marketing with an agency or handle it on your own time, the answer is yes: search rankings can improve with an active social media presence!

Authenticity

Social metrics such as likes, shares, etc. are not integrated into Google algorithms. But according to Backlinko, the “legitimacy of social media accounts” is. Google actively strives to ascertain the authenticity of social media profiles. Profiles with an inordinately high number of followers compared to the number of posts, lack of engagement with users, and inconsistent profile information can all...
