Top Client Questions Of The Month:

Thanks to all the clients and newcomers for these great questions. Watch the Video Newsletter above for more detailed answers. Here they are.

1. What is the voice package for search you offer and how can I get my business on Google voice searches and alexa, siri voice searches?
– You can view the voice package here along with a sample PDF of a listing and even get a free listing check yourself! This listing option allows you to create custom answers to small business questions for voice searches using Google and Alexa

2. Your video looks great what equipment do you use? – Abram
– I use the Canon 90D and the Camlink 4K for video. To record, I use OBS studio which is free and a Blue Snowball Ice Mic as well as streamdeck mobile for android.

3. Are we able to turn our google reviews back off again?
– Unfortunately, no, this was a one-time thing made by Google during the global health event. You can get false reviews removed. We have had success with clients doing this in the past. If the review is false, a customer makes a false claim, or was never a customer you can get it removed barring a review from Google.

4. How do we add videos to youtube? How do we build up our library? 
– Watch the video segment to see details on how to add a video to youtube and how to set up the channel.

5. What is the advantage to put in more than 1 picture in a post? 
– If it tells your story then go for it! Compare metrics and see if it is better but a great picture is better than a bunch of bad pictures.

6. What is bounce rate and why is it so high?
– Bounce rate or exit rate is when people go to your website and then leave. You want to have a low bounce rate but sometimes it will be high and that can be okay in some places. For organic it should be 60% or less. For Display ads, it can be 60% to 90% sometimes more. It depends on the traffic. See more in the video.
