Are you making the most of Google plus?

My friend owns a tree surgery company called Stourbridge Tree Surgeons and he has recently notified my of how he is utilizing and making the most of his Google Plus page.

  1. Add local people in your community to your circles
    This widens your network and and notify’s local businesses of your services.
  2. Ask your customers for reviews for your good service
    5 star ratings build up trust and authenticity of your businesses listing.
  3. Be active
    Using your Google Plus profile actively is more likely to get traffic to it and increase the number of views your listing has – The number of views is know to increase your listings rank in the local section.

And that’s all for today hopefully you got some value from this, please feel free to share it if you did…. Thanks!!!
