Google Ads

Google is more than a company, it has become an action. People say, “Google restaurants” to see who’s local, open, rated high…and most importantly…to make a choice.

Your Google Ads need to be carefully designed, intentionally promoted, and targeting specifically to the audience you’re trying to reach. Our Google Ads Certified team members can make sure it’s done right.

Reputation Management

Bottom line: without reviews, you can’t compete online. BrightLocal Consumer Studies completed in 2019 showed that, “82% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses, with 52% of 18-54-year-olds saying they ‘always’ read reviews.” But how does a local business get noticed and stand out in the midst of larger companies with almost limitless resources? Reviewsofl.us is the solution.

Bizmktg’s team can show you how to get reviews, respond to reviews, and convert those reviews into new business. Setting up the technology, training your staff, and helping you navigate successful follow-up on bad reviews will help bring in new customers.

Social Media Marketing

Social Media platforms are a mixed bag. But online use of these platforms is exploding. Some of those explosions can help you — reaching sheer numbers of people. Some of those explosions are tough — the amount of discord.

How you promote your services and products through social media has never been more important. One wrong word or image can undercut your efforts. But campaigns done right can propel you forward in this competitive environment.

We’ll make sure your ads move you forward with strategic timing, design, and language coupled with pinpoint targeting.

Email Campaigns

Every business should be sending email campaigns to their customers including previous customers, current customers and potential customers. Emailing relevant content will build your company’s brand with potential customers and reinforce your presence with current customers. Your current or previous customers may not need the specific service that is discussed in the email at the time, but they may pass it along to their friends and family.
