Googling Your Business

Posted by Keith Jolie on Monday, May 11, 2015, In : Strategies 
Frustration about getting calls about Google is rampant and understandable - I’m one of the frustrated! Please don’t misunderstand me though!

Getting Brighter works very closely with Google, we have a dedicated account representative at Google and I speak to the great people at Google at least once a week.

Posted by Keith Jolie on Friday, March 20, 2015, In : local business 
Recently there was a post in a local business groups facebook page about calls from “Google" - the post described ongoing calls claiming to be from Google hard selling on everything from top of page results to threats that their business wouldn't be listed on Google at all.  These calls are obviously coming from pretty shady organizations, and thankfully most people are smart enough to just hang up.

Paying a little attention to google pays off big for local business

Posted by Keith Jolie on Monday, October 29, 2012, In : local business 
So by now we've all probably realized that Google has taken the lead over Alta Vista (90's joke for some of you to chuckle at). Doing what you can to be found on google search is no doubt important when you're promoting your products or services, but many smaller businesses may not realize how paying a little attention to Google can pay off for you.

Google has a number of free tools and services that local businesses can take advantage of to ensure that they are found by the people who are c...
