I can’t speak highly enough about Ready2Go Sites. I have been in what you might call a Nightmare in relation to my website. I have had 3 different so called web designers design my website but they were ultimately filled with broken promises. I had spent a lot of money with those 3 companies so needless to say I was skeptical of Ready2Go Sites. I drilled Abhi with questions for about a month prior to starting my website redesign with him and he never got mad. Abhi always answered my questions in a timely manner. I had to put my faith in him and he has done everything he said he would. I have had the new site up for about 10 days now and I am already at a break even ROI with my monthly Google Adwords budget. I couldn’t be happier with the results thus far!

I’ve been using them for about a year now, and the results have been fantastic! I have experienced a consistent increase in customer calls, and my sales are up significantly over last year. I am always able to reach someone if I have a question, and the service I receive is second to none. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to take their business to the next level. Excellent!

Why every Carpet Cleaning Business Should have a Yelp Listing

Customer feedback is vital for the continued growth of a carpet cleaning business apart from the visibility on Top 10 searches of Google, Bing etc. When you are in the carpet cleaning business all that matters for success is having a satisfied customer base that is happy with your services and are more than willing to share their pleasant experience with other potential customers. Likewise, in case there happens to be any dissatisfied customer you would want their problems to be addressed promptly so that there is no negative impact on your business image. A lot of local directories support customer reviews. One of the most popular local directories for carpet cleaners is Yelp.

With a listing on Yelp it becomes much easier for you to engage with your existing customers. You get to know how your customers perceive the quality of your services and what your shortcomings are that you need to work on.

Yelp not only helps you get valuable customer feedback but also makes sure that there is no undue bias or influence on the customer. A Yelp listing is now a vital aspect of a business marketing strategy.

The Benefits

With a listing on Yelp, you can expect following important benefits:

1) Receive customer reviews about your business. These reviews help you understand how customers perceive the quality of your service compared to your competitors.

2) Most potential customers check for Yelp reviews before calling your business for a carpet cleaning job. Thus, in true sense Yelp is a great marketing tool for your cleaning business.

3) If you have a powerful and optimized Yelp listing, there is a high possibility that your Yelp listing can show in Google top 10 results with the review stars. All you need to do is keep your profile updated and encourage your customers to post reviews on Yelp.

4) A customer who is dissatisfied can post his complaint. This gives you a chance to win back an unhappy customer by addressing his complaint and trying to resolve the issues.

Customers Trust Reviews and Ratings Posted on Yelp

Yelp is rated highly for the reliability it offers. Yelp makes sure that the reviews and ratings posted on its site are genuine and posted by real customers and not agents of the business. Yelp deploys complex algorithm that helps it detect fake reviews which are either posted by the business itself or fake customers.

Yelp not only filters fake reviews from its site but goes a step forward by penalizing businesses that resort to such practices.

Customers pose deep faith in reviews posted on Yelp and make their buying decisions accordingly. So if you are into carpet cleaning business and want to ensure that you are able to leverage your satisfied customer base to expand your customer base a Yelp listing is unavoidable.

Pay Per Click

ppc-full

More than 70% of Pay Per Click programs are either managed poorly or run without a definitive thought process and strategy and they fail indefinitely! Pay Per Click program appears simple to manage and get results. If you thought so, then you are probably right only for the first part i.e. the Pay Per Click management bit. Getting results is a intensive process unfortunately not as simple as it looks like. Getting Good Results from Your Website (new business & customers) is a collective execution of a well managed Pay Per Click program, a Professional Website that can sell & a business that can serve its customers well.

Here are 10 very simple tips to improve the effectiveness of your pay-per-click program and ensure a better conversion rate at a lower cost per click.

1. Number of Keywords Don’t be greedy and choose hundreds of keywords for your campaign. Not only does it make it difficult to find out which keywords work and deliver targeted traffic, but it also makes it difficult to track and manage the campaign. Instead, start with 10-15 keywords per campaign and test them thoroughly by running the campaign for couple of weeks or more. Based on the results, try to add more or remove existing keywords.

2. Keyword Match Criteria: Broad, Phrase or Exact Match – which one to choose? Let’s take an example. If we choose a keyword “quality carpet cleaning” and apply a broad match, it means that someone searching for “buy quality carpet” will see your ad listing since it’s a broad match. Using the same keyword as a phrase match will show your ad listing when someone searches for “quality carpet cleaning riverside”. An exact match only shows your ad listing, when there is an exact match or someone searches for “quality carpet cleaning” in the example. So take this example into consideration when you choose the keyword match type.

One more thing to take a note is that one keyword chosen with wrong match criteria can spoil the entire campaign. For example, if you choose “carpet cleaning”, “upholstery cleaning”, “tile cleaning” etc. as phrase match type and choose “carpet” as a broad match type, then your ads will start to show even if “carpet repairs” is searched, defeating the purpose of choosing the other phrase/exact match keywords.

3. Using relevant, traffic oriented and targeted keywords:Using keywords that are too generic or using keywords that may not be popularly searched will decline the performance of the campaign. The non-targeted keywords will waste your marketing dollars by attracting irrelevant traffic while the low traffic keywords will get you too little clicks. A better option would be to check the traffic on the keywords using Google Toolhttps://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal while choosing the keywords.

4. Improve keyword quality score: A higher keyword quality score means that your ad is more relevant to your campaign keywords and that Google is most likely going to rank your listing higher and at a lower cost per click. To improve quality score, improve landing page quality by using more targeted content, use keywords in the ad copy, set the appropriate bid amounts on keywords, and try to maintain a good click-through rate (CTR). A CTR above one percent is considered good. For the campaigns which have a good CTR historically, Google tends to shows the ads high enough on the paid listings at a lower cost per click (CPC).

5. Writing targeted ad copy: Writing simple, effective ad copy with a clear message and a call to action text works much better than including too many technical details in the ad. If it’s a regionally targeted ad, which most often cleaning companies do, try to add the region/city name in the ad. Also, try to make use of your campaign keywords in the ad copy. This will improve the relevancy and quality score of a keyword ultimately giving you a lower cost per click and higher ranking on Google.

6. Writing multiple ad copies: Writing multiple ad copies will allow Google to rotate the ads and automatically show ads which work better than the other. A simple trick may be to just change the title of the ad and re-use the two-line description ad text. By running multiple ads, you can find out which ad copy generates more clicks and retain it and remove ads which are not performing well.

7. Choosing the right geography: Be it a 50 mile service area around your office, one city, multiple cities or states or countries, Google allows you to choose the exact geography where you would like to show your ad listing. Without choosing the right geography, you will end up wasting your marketing dollars. So consider researching your service area on Google and select the geographical location where you want to target the ads.

8. Using search versus content network: Google provides an option to run your ads on search network and content network. Search networks include Google and Google partner sites like AOL.com, etc. Content networks consist of websites that have chosen to show Google Ad listing. If your target prospects/customers visit a particular website, then you can choose to show your ad listing on that site. Considering the pay-per-click model; it may not harm to add some content sites. Try to keep the number not too high as irrelevant content sites lower down the overall CTR of the campaign and raise the bid amount on keywords. But certainly consider experimenting with some sites and add sites that you think your target customers would shop on.

9. Choosing a budget: This depends on your marketing budget. Start with a smaller budget sufficient to test out your campaign and see what works. Sometimes campaigns may not give you instant return on your investment. So avoid overspending without running a test campaign and knowing what works.

10. Landing page design:The landing page or the page which the prospects see when they click on your ad listing should have enough information to be able to catch the prospects attention and make up their mind to contact you. The landing page should use relevant keywords that you have chosen in the campaign so that keyword quality score is higher.

The above 10 simple tips will help you get more out of your Google marketing dollars by driving more targeted traffic to your site, generating more leads, improving the conversion rate of the website and getting a consistent ROI.
