Google My Business: Your Virtual Storefront

The Halton-Peel and Durham Chapters of POC are joining forces once again this month to offer the very best virtual meeting experience to our valued members and guests! Together, we will learn, grow and network.

While the customer journey is continuously involving, the one common element is that almost all of their research is conducted online. As technologies advance and the digital space becomes more crowded, its imperative that you make your business stand out. One of the greatest ways to ensure your business is visible during the ever-changing customer journey, is by implementing a thorough Google My Business strategy.

Google My Business (GMB) has become the powerhouse of local, online searches and essentially acts as your virtual storefront. Not only will it generate more awareness for your business, it is an incredible tool for communicating with current and potential customers, generating engagement and ultimately driving more leads for your business. Join us to learn all about how Google My Business works, how to get one setup and verified and how to use it to its fullest potential.

This hands-on Google My Business session is facilitated by Joshua Waller, Digital Manager at Ontario SEO, who creates and executes digital strategies to ensure clients’ goals are not only met but exceeded. With Joshua’s many years of experience in the digital realm (across many verticals), he is able to pinpoint any business’ areas for growth as well as new opportunities that can be formed into actionable strategies. While Joshua’s primary focus is SEO (with a strong passion for Google My Business), he also has in-depth knowledge and experience in paid advertising (social, PPC, programmatic), email marketing, social media marketing and content creation. Having an array of expertise in digital marketing allows Joshua to see the “big picture” when creating strategies and ensures that everything is integrated seamlessly.

As every business is unique, so is their Google My Business! Questions are encouraged throughout the session to ensure you have the resources and knowledge to utilize Google My Business to its fullest potential.

Following the chapter meeting, we will host a chapter-specific social on Google Meet from 8:30-9pm.

We look forward to seeing you there!
