For Your Information:
Is there a difference between Google Business Profile Optimization and Google Maps Optimization?
Yes, there is a difference between Google Business Profile optimization and Google Maps optimization.
Google Business Profile optimization involves optimizing the information and content on your Google My Business (GMB) profile, which is the listing that appears on Google's search engine results page (SERP) when someone searches for your business name.
This includes optimizing the business name, address, phone number, hours of operation, website link, and other details to ensure they are accurate and up-to-date. It also involves adding photos, videos, and other content to enhance your profile and make it more attractive to potential customers.
On the other hand, Google Maps optimization involves optimizing your business's presence on Google Maps, which is a separate platform from GMB.
This includes ensuring your business appears correctly on the map, adding accurate and relevant information to your listing, and encouraging customer reviews to boost your visibility and credibility on the platform.
While there is some overlap between these two types of optimization, they are distinct in terms of their focus and goals. Both are important for local SEO and can help drive traffic and customers to your business, but they require different strategies and tactics to be effective.
NOTE: All Online Marketing always follows a very specific path. Start with the Foundational Elements first. Crawl, Walk, Jog, Sprint. At BAM & MMT our Goal is to provide the "Right Service" for your Online Success Journey.
FLEXTIME SERVICE / SUPPORT
by the Time Block
FlexTime: 4, 8, 16 and 40 Hour Blocks
Use our FlexTime Service / Support Blocks for almost any markting service need, training, technical support and even Sales & Marketing Coaching.
Is FlexTime Right for Me?
For Your Information:
From BAM / MMT:
FlexTime is mainly for existing clients, but we do have a few longtime clients that simply grab a block of time per month for ALL of the things they know will surface over the course of any given month.
Is there TIME CARRY-OVER?
The Short Answer on this is NO. But if it happens for regulars, and they have a couple of oddball months where things went SUPER Smooth with NO Hiccups. We normally give them so BONUS time.
If you ever happen to talk to our clients, we (David specifically) is very generous with his time. Be prepared, he is an "Ask and You Shall Receive Guy" , so be prepared for a little bit of "Fire Hose Education". Best to do direct training FlexTime on Google Meet or Zoom so you can RECORD Training Sessions.
General Local Search Key Points:
A Little Extra Insight from "BAM"
1. On-Page SEO, Average Costs?
The cost of on-page SEO for one web page can vary depending on various factors such as the complexity of the website, the size of the website, the level of competition, and the experience and expertise of the SEO professional or agency.
Generally, the average cost of on-page SEO for one web page can range from $50 to $500 or more (our Basic is $150 per page).
However, some SEO agencies or professionals may charge more or less than this range based on the factors mentioned above.
It's important to note that on-page SEO is just one aspect of an overall SEO strategy, and other factors such as off-page optimization, keyword research, and content creation may also be needed to achieve the desired results.
2. Can I do Directory Submissions (Citations) Myself?
Of course you can. But you can use 1 Submission Company that Charges you $9.99 per submission, others that are as low as $1.00.
The challenge most agents (any local business for that matter) is that they do not know who to call, who to trust and the biggest issue... They simply don't have enough background to know what to ask for and what to expect. And you are now spending "Blind Time" versus focusing on your "High Payoff" Activities that you are an EXPERT at!
We are always very transparent with our clients. You can do ALL of this yourself. But will you get the RESULTS you are after?
If you need a NEW Air Conditioner in your home, do you do it yourself, or leave it to the experts? I will go out on a limb and guess your answer here. And speaking of limbs, please use a professional for Tree Trimming. aka Experts, Arborists, whatever.
You get our point.
3. Can we do our own Keyword Research?
Again, of course. But do you know where to start and what the outcome is?
I (David Jamison, owner of MMT) have long been a proponent of D.I.Y. That is how I got into this business.
But I have an Engineering Background, was a Corporate CAD Manager for a National Civil Engineering Firm and started writing code in college in the 80s. So the "Tech Thing" comes easy for me for whatever reason. Not the case for most people. And as a Realtor, you have so many plates to spin, focus on the things that you want to be GREAT at and let us handle the rest. You will Thank Us on the backside.
4. What is the process for starting a project with "BAM" / MMT?
You either Click the "Get Started" Button and Checkout... (you get an Onboarding Form and we Schedule a Call with You), or You can Schedule a Call with us now, we will answer and all questions you still might have and if you are ready to get started we will walk you through the rest.
5. How will I know if I am getting what I paid for and what are the deliverables?
This is a valid question. Much of what we do in the Digital Marketing space is like a "Black Hole" to our clients. But we do Project Pass-Off Sheets as part of our Project Management. And we often do Loom Videos of the "How, What, Where" stuff. And the biggest part is the RESULTS days, weeks and months later. It is pretty hard to fake this stuff. We want you to WIN so you will be a "Raving Fan" and refer other Agents to us. And "PLEASE", don't keep us as your "Secret Sauce". I know many clients want to, but there is plenty of Buyers and Sellers to go around when you are "DOING IT RIGHT".
Ready to Get Started?
Frequently asked questions:
Short answer is NO. We do recommend doing Step 1, 2 and 3 Together if possible. Our Most Popular Service Bundle is Steps 1 through 8. (Support during the Project and Project Pass-Off is included) We always do the basic setup for Step 9 on the 8 Step. Step 9 is Lead Generation and we are strongly recommending that all agents start Google Local Service Ads to get your Profile (as a Real Estate Agent) "verified". A Back Door way to ensure you are higher in the ranking order.
Yes, to some extent. GBP Profiles can stand-alone. It does not make sense to do Step 3. (Hyperlocal Landing Pages) without having a Google Business Profile. And of course a CRM is always recommended, but a GBP and a Lander or Website should be done first. Some of the dependencies are simple logic, but if you need more information feel free to schedule a call, we will be happy to go over all of this with you. [ Book a Call ]
Yes, there is a Significant Discount. Click the Packages and do the math. Or Schedule a Call and we can walk through all of it for you.
AgentFire has a $99 p/m subscription, add $30 to Showcase IDX if you want IDX. We always recommend IDX. It is the essence of a Professional Search Based Agent Website. And then you will have your CRM. Subscriptions vary based on your selection. ALL Subscriptions are paid directly to the associated platform. We simply have a suite of "Go To" Tools, but the platforms are paid directly. We are your Online Presence Builder, Support Channel, Trainer and Coach. You choose the level of our involvement.
Short answer, YES. ALL of it. As long as your Project Fees are fully paid, it is your "BABY".
There is NO Set Answer here. We have had clients get calls, leads and deals (closings) within a matter of days. But that is often "Luck of the Draw". We always suggest patience. As you know the saying... "Patience Pays". But we understand that this is a business transaction and you want results. Your Google Business Profile will gain traction within the first 30 days. We suggest 60 Days to 6 Months for best traction. But you do have to "Feed the Machine. It is not a Plug and Play, Set it and Forget it System. Just Remember this: Marketing is a VERB. Action is Required. If you are super anxious to get results going, we recommend starting Google Local Service Ads as soon as our Launch is complete and we (and you and friends & family) have had a chance to vet everything out with a full QA/QC. Then you are Ready to Fly. Want the Skinny on the Back Door Acceleration Plan? Schedule a Call with us and we will share some interesting tricks to get you out of the Local Search Gate Fast.
