Are you happy with your online profile as a small business operator, or would you like to expand your presence in the digital world?
Set next Tuesday aside in your diary, as there will be two free workshops in Forbes that is all about boosting your internet profile in the online map services of Google, Apple and Microsoft.
“It is all about claiming your placemark on online maps,” said Geomancia’s Managing Director, Angela McCauley, who is presenting Building the Digital Economy workshops in Forbes and Dubbo.
She said not many business owners realised they could claim the placemark which pops up when you do a Google search for a busi- ness. “By claiming the placemark they can add more information, such as business hours and upload photos. This would give you much better search results if people would for instance Google for a certain service using the words ‘near me’,” Angela said.
The workshop is for two hours and during the first hour Angela will focus on changes in consumer behavior and the transformation to the digital world for businesses. The second hour will be a hands on session where participants will start building a web presence. If you are already on the web, you will get tips on how to lift your search results.
