Important Tech Tip: Be Sure to Claim Ownership of Your Business on Google My Business

Category:

This important tech-related blog post is brought to you by NetTrack Marketing, our digital marketing vendor partner.


When searching Google for restaurants, retail stores, contractors, or other local service providers, you may have noticed that results often include specific business listings along with a map, and in many cases, reviews for each listed business. Depending on the search, you may have even noticed more prominent business listings showing images, logos, and open hours for each of the locations being listed.

All of this information is the result of Google gathering and showing information specific to individual businesses, through a program that they call Google My Business.  Because Google is always trying to improve the relevancy of their search results, Google My Business listings are becoming more-and-more prominent and important for locally-based searches.  For this reason, it is extremely important that you take ownership and optimize your company’s profile in Google My Business.

1-800-SWEEPER Partner Profile: Clean Sweep, Inc.

Category:

An Extraordinary Example of Perseverance

The year was 1990 when Clean Sweep, Inc. began in Baker, Louisiana (a town in east Baton Rouge). “We started sweeping parking lots using a dust pan and broom,” says co-founder, Bridget Burge. “Later we added a $100 Wal-Mart lawnmower hoping to mow a few lawns, too.” The beginning may have been meager but today Clean Sweep is a company to admire.

Later, in a brilliant business move spurred by fulfilling customer need, Clean Sweep added concrete and asphalt repair to their repertoire.
