Google+ For Local Contractor Business


I have just recently created my Google+ page, and began to focus on it a bit, since it seems like the conversion from Local to + has finally completed. I would like to see what other examples may be out there.

Here's my page:
https://plus.google.com/+Amazinggara...et/posts?hl=en

Any suggestions, comments?

Any other examples of your pages and successes?

Thank You!

It's a start! I'd try to get at least five more reviews and upload some videos.

Re: Google+ For Local Contractor Business


Well it's been a few weeks, and I've added videos and content. About 4200 views in the past 30 days.

Any other input?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Google+ For Local Contractor Business


I have a verified G+ account for my Painting business. I'd like to have separate pages for Power Washing and Roof Cleaning. The problem, the address is the same. I created a Roof Washing page and received a duplicate listing notice. How can I have multiple pages with the same address?

Thanks in advance.

Everything looks good. It's been verified, all info completed, pics/videos added and has some reviews.

Just continue getting reviews.

Re: Google+ For Local Contractor Business


You used the location kansas city in your "about" twice. If you dont show up in the pack for kansas city the first thing I would do would be to drop that in your about section.

Re: Google+ For Local Contractor Business


A bit of an update. I've implemented many of the suggestions and tried to make weekly posts. Now up to more the 55,000 views, and averaging about 15,000 per month now.

Thanks for the tips!

Take a look: https://plus.google.com/+AmazinggaragefloorsNet/

Honestly still learning a lot about Google+, but I will try to follow and help anyone I can.
