GMB & Local SEO Pricing

Google My Business (GMB) & Local Seach Engine Optimization (SEO)

I don’t know what I need.
This Google My Business (GMB) stuff is a foreign language.

Yep. That is why before any package is chosen, these questions should be answered:

  • Have you claimed your Google My Business (GMB) Listing?
  • Has your website been reviewed for proper Foundational SEO?
  • Where are your current clients coming from? Referrals? Web Leads?
  • Do you currently have or previously had hired someone for GMB/SEO?
  • What are your goals for the business? Growth Plan? Budget?
Next step is to read through what we offer and schedule a consultation =)

We get that this may be hard to follow. It’s ALOT of abbreviations and terms that you don’t deal with everyday. BUT this is our world! And that’s why we are here to help you show up when people search for your services. Because that’s what really matters and what all this helps you do!

Our GMB / SEO Packages Raise Your Rankings

Proven success! There are no magical unicorns in SEO that will help you be found better on Google. It is a combination of the optimized content within your Google listing and on your website, as well as citations, links, posts, and brand signals.

The quickest and best Google My Business Package to boost your ranking is the Accelerated one below.

Accelerated Google My Business / Local SEO Setup Package (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

You want to start here! Your Google My Business listing is more than just what resides within that listing. The power of your GMB (your description, google website, services, products, etc), is also impacted by citations, directories your business is listed in, links from other sites and more. This strategy helps your business be listed higher in local Search Engine Ranking Pages (SERPs).

Google has taken over 50% of the 1st page GMB real estate with ads and now there are local search ads taking up space as well. There is no 1 magical unicorn easy button. Google is constantly moving the mark.

Why is it an “Accelerated” GMB Package?

The accelerated package is completed in 90-120 days – what is typically done in 6 months or more. By choosing the Accelerated Google My Business Local SEO Setup Package, you will increase your business’ online visibility, build brand prominence and increase listing relevance much quicker. 

We offer more than this package, as GMB is not a one and done service. We truly believe this accelerated setup package is the best way to get the most power from your listing. It should be followed up with a monthly GMB Plan. (More information coming soon).
