The good thing about social media is that you can use it for free, and the only thing you should do is to strategize how you can maximize its use to make business site viral among social media users. The goal is to attract prospective customers by using your loyal customers who will likely leave comments, likes, and posts about their experience with a specific product or service you are offering.

3. Express Your Gratitude Through Letters

Instead of relying on email, switch up your communication to customers and stakeholders by writing them a handwritten on printed paper letter. As a company who aims to strengthen hyperlocal marketing, what you need to do is to express your appreciation and gratitude to people who have helped you along the way. Although you can do this either through emails, but it would be so much better if you could take extra some time and effort to snail-mail a thank-you note.

4. Post Photos of Your Company In Action

What better way to maximize the use of your Google My Business page than posting pictures of your company in its active best. It makes every detail about your company (e.g. your vision, advocacy, and goals) more credible when people see updated photos of your company.

Your photos should show not only how your company operates, but also how it helps the community through the events you attend or sponsor. Your pictures should tell your page visitors how uniquely concerned your company is with the community or endeavor worth investing in.

Final Word

By maximizing the features of Google My Business, you can expect an influx of new leads and customers knocking in your door. Are you ready to take your business local?
