Edmonton business coach | when to get Google ads
Paying for Google ads is something that every business should be doing, but as an Edmonton business coach we don’t want you to do it right away. One of the things that small businesses do is they start spending money on ads in a lot of different places such as Facebook, Google AdWords, or other publications before their business has any social proof.
What do I mean by social proof? What is meant by social proof is what other people think about your business and how they are communicating how they feel about you online. Developing a strong social proof is something that the Edmonton business coach can help you do. It’s not difficult to do, but it does take persistence and a plan. If you don’t have a plan to manage your online presence, then you are planning to fail with your online presence.
So the best thing for you to do, if you haven’t already done it, is get set up on Google my business. Setting up that listing is fast easy and it’s free. There is usually a 12 day waiting period before you can verify that account, but once your account is verified you can start receiving objective Google reviews from your happy customers.
Why do I say getting reviews from happy customers is important? Simply because if you don’t get reviews from your happy customers, then people who are unhappy with your business or our competitors will start posting nasty reviews about you online to try and destroy your reputation.
If you want to be the type of company that gets ahead of the game, and get so many positive reviews that one negative review has almost no bearing on your star rating, then you need to get in touch with the Edmonton business coach at inspired method.
Now once you have determined that you’re going to get Google reviews, we recommend that you get at least 40 Google reviews before you start running any Google ads. The reason why is because 40 is the number of reviews that the average consumer needs to see on a business before they will trust that star rating. So once you have 40 or more of those Google five-star reviews then that is the time when we tell people to go ahead and start running Google ads.
Having an effective Google ads campaign will help drive traffic to your website and with that traffic more and more of leads coming into your email box. These are people who are hot and ready to make a buying decision because they’ve seen your reviews, they visited your website, and they have expressed an interest in buying your products. So it’s up to you to make those leads into a sale.
