What is Google My Business – GMB?

google my business gmbMaybe you have a website, but do you have a Google My Business page?  Some businesses do, but they are not managed properly.  Amazingly, some don’t have one.

So what is Google My Business?

It’s a very useful tool to give customer very quick access to high level information about yourself, directly within the Google search results.  Details like:

  • Google Reviews
  • Website link
  • Map of your location
  • Photos of your business
  • Links to other services
  • Opening Times.

Customers often click directly on these, rather than in the search results itself.

Sometimes a company sets it up for you, but never makes full use of it – doesn’t add photos, or the opening hours, or other common issues.  So how to you gain access to it?

It’s not straight forward, but we have done this for many business.  A Gmail account is needed first, then with that account we (or you) can claim that business.  We have a managed service that can do this for you, and then we can manage your GMB page, adding photos, adding news stories (for mobile devices), and much more.

It’s a very smart thing to have.  It looks really good in your Google Search Results.

If you want to check yours, just Google your business name (not the website address), and if you come up, have a look on the right side of the screen.  If you rank ok, it will show your details.  See what comes up, and if it’s not what you want, not to your satisfaction, give is a call: 01775 894479, or use the livechat in the lower right corner of this screen.

It forms part of your website’s SEO, this is because it is your Search Results we are looking at, so if you need information on that, do get in touch with us.

What do you get in Cheap Websites 1024 576 Editor

What do you get in Cheap Websites

Many folks just want a cheap website – something simple, such as a one page website.  It’s something we can do in a matter of hours.  Once we have your logo, content and desired email address, we can point your domain to our systems and get you up and running in a morning.

When it comes to being optimised for Google, a one page website is going to be tough to rank well.  But if cost is your own objective, and you want to just have one page put up online with your details, photo, and some other small piece of info, we can do this from just £190 (based on our pricing on our Budget Websites page.

A Cheap Website is literally built quickly and cheaply.  It doesn’t including any Google My Business account, but we DO submit it to Google as part of the package.  We also include one email account.

What can Cheap Websites include?

  • Full screen image (or small image)
  • Your existing logo supplied to us
  • Links to your social media
  • Contact form

When we do such a website, we offer additional features that you might like to add, but this will of course bump up the original price.

These are features such as creating you a logo – this takes an hour or so, and is based on information you give (colour scheme, logo icon style and so on).

google my business

Google My Business

We can also create you a Google My Business account, so when someone finds you on Google, there can be a right hand pane that has your address and other details.

We can create further email accounts for you, as well as social media accounts.

If your website needs to be a few more pages, then the costs will rise, as each page is independent.  One page might be really simple, while another may take an hour or two for us to create.  So when you think of a website you are after, think of what content you need, if you want to rank well on Google, or just a place to direct your customers.

Cheap doesn’t mean poor quality!

At 7DESIGN, every website we build is made to the highest standard.  We do not take shortcuts.  While others might throw a website together and hand it over, we check it looks perfect on all devices.  So cheap does not mean bad.  We are here to make it distinctive perfect.

University of Lincoln WordPress 950 500 Editor

University of Lincoln WordPress

Just occasionally, you find yourself in a position of providing a service to a company or organisation, and you feel particularly proud to be working for them – this happened recently for us at 79DESIGN.

A few months back we had a communication from the University of Lincoln; they were looking for a WordPress Trainer to head over to Lincoln to teach some staff how to use WordPress.  There were some staff who knew very little, and some who knew nothing about WordPress.

We communicated with their Secretariat, Marina, and very pleased and proud to say they recruited us to go up to Lincoln to provide the service.

Larger Onsite WordPress Training Groups

Initially it was due to be one on one with Marina who contacted us, followed by an afternoon with a larger group.  This was changed a little, so that we could provide the training to even more people in the first session, which was far better for their staff.

The first session of Onsite Training went very well.  Teaching all the basic elements of WordPress Training, from Posts to Pages, from Media to Settings.  Everything that comes with the basic setup.

After a very well catered lunch, it was the turn of eight other colleagues, without Marina present.  After introductions, we began from the very start.

It was a very enjoyable time.  To quote Marina, they found it very interesting and “inspiring”.  We find this comment extremely positive, and thank them for their hospitality, and warm welcome to the University of Lincoln.

New Towns of South Holland App 1024 451 Editor

New Towns of South Holland App

In the past month, South Holland Council has had an App developed for Android, iOS and others, to help the development of local businesses, and to help local residents find services – the Towns of South Holland App.

It’s free to download and free to update.  Just search in your App Store “Towns of South Holland”.

We are pleased to say that following helpful support from Jayne, we are now included in this App, under Spalding > Services > Web Designers.  Our telephone number, information and link to our website are all included.  With excellent help from Jayne in the South Holland Council offices, we are extremely happy to be included in this project.  It’s great for the area, and for those looking for services like ours, we are really pleased.

When you first download the app, you open it and you see this screen for a brief moment.  It then opens to a menu where you can view by town, or A-Z.  It’s really smart.  There will be more developments on it in the future.

How Towns of South Holland looks

You can find more details on this app on the South Holland Council website:

South Holland web design – truly local

So where in Lincolnshire is 79DESIGN?  We are in South Holland, commonly known as South Lincolnshire.

We began here in South Holland too, and we love this town, Spalding.  It’s a fine place to be.  Lots of local businesses, growing businesses, from retail shops to takeaways, hair and beauty establishments, to schools and learning establishments too.

A growing reputation in South Holland

We have a growing reputation for the quality of our work, speed of our support response, and friendly supportive attitude to all customers.  Sometimes we like to meet in the evening, away from work so we can freely chat, perhaps at the Ivy Wall, Wetherspoons in Spalding.

number one web designer in south holland

If you Google ‘Web Designer Spalding’, or even as we discovered recently, “design spalding”, 79DESIGN is ranked number one.  We feel extremely proud of that.  We have worked hard on this status.

South Holland is a lovely part of Lincolnshire.  It might be the flattest part of the country, but it’s very pretty, and with a growing community, more businesses and folk are looking to have brilliant new websites created, or to have their dull websites turned into some of which they can feel proud.
