How do you use Google My Business to boost sales for multi-location businesses? During September’s Brandify Summit, we listened to an in-depth case study from Dick’s Sporting Goods on sharpening a localized search marketing strategy for multilocation brands around things like Google Posts. We feature that talk in the latest episode of Heard on the Street (see above).
“Google Posts are a little over a year old now,” said Dicks Sporting Goods SEO Specialist Kaci Cramer. “As soon as we saw articles about it and it made its way through the blogs, the company just jumped on it. We thought, ‘This is a new opportunity because the landscape is changing so much, and the SERPs are becoming more and more localized, and SEO is getting less and less real estate.’ So we were trying these solutions: How can we get customers to our site? How can we get the word out? Can we leverage omnichannel promotions? And Google posts was kind of that opportunity, and we thought let’s really take advantage of this and go all out.”
Listen to the episode above for the entire interview including case study data and more tactics and takeaways from Kramer.
