You can search area next to your current location or any other place of your choice.Google Maps Local Search “Okay, so what?” you may say. Why is that information important for my small business success? Well, remember those 85% of customers? Imagine all of them passing by your restaurant and entering your main rival’s place. That is absolutely realistic scenario. If you don’t add business to Google Maps, it won’t appear on the map near the client and they might never discover you. Within minutes, customers scan through ratings, photos and overall location characteristics and place a booking for table. That means, they might not even see your restaurant on the way to your competitor, since they have already settled everything online. In the age of internet its importance can’t be overestimated. If you think your restaurant doesn't leverage internet and maps tools to the fullest, you might consider investing into online marketing strategy.Apart from usual business processes management, every modern restaurant should start caring for it’s online presence and online identity. Supporting official pages on social media and life-essential business directories and listings is a legit business process any small new business (i.e. restaurants) that struggle to attract new customers must have. However, even the largest restaurant in town can lose the online battle to your small restaurant, if you make sure you are backing yourself up online. Developing proper website for restaurants is absolutely critical. With 85% of customers ‘googling’ for places, you shouldn't underestimate investing into online marketing for your restaurant. To put it simple, it is much more expensive for you not to be presented in front of all those users, rather than putting resources into converting website viewers into real visitors.If you seek advice or consultancy regarding online marketing services and strategies for your restaurant, feel free to call us or send us your question through Contact Form.
