A Google Places video is a powerful and effective way to introduce yourself instantly to thousands of prospects and customers. They immediately meet you
through your video introduction and get a sense of who you are and what your business is about.
This video is properly tagged and embedded into your Google places listing to give you a decided advantage over those who either have no Google places listing at all, or who have a bit of ho-hum text and perhaps an image or two.
Google Places FAQ’s
Q:What makes for the most effective Google places video?
A: A clear, concise message that gets straight to the heart of what your service or product is all about.
Q: How long should my Google Places video be ?
A: We recommend between 40 – 50 seconds. Anything longer than that will not hold their attention. You need to tell them quickly
why they need your service so they’ll want to click through to your website that is posted within your Google Places listing to learn more about
Q: Should my Google Places video be creative?
A: Creativity is always welcome in a world full of over stimulated media. But you’re better to focus on clarity of message and save your
creativity for your Google adwords and PPC video messaging. The prospect has already found you through a google search and it’s up to
you to professionally make your pitch and guide them into your website where they’ll get the rest of their answers.
Q: Can’t I just record myself speaking into my own web cam ?
A: Of course you can. But for many, seeing your video will be their first impression of your business. You have the option of making a
clean, professional first impression, or one where the cat is walking across the back of the sofa behind you and the garbage truck beeping
in the distance.
Q: Can I use my Google Places video elsewhere?
A: Absolutely. We encourage you to share it as much as possible where it makes sense to do so. On your Youtube channel, which we can
help you set up if you don’t already have one. On your Facebook page, your Pinterest page, and sharing through your Twitter account.
