Get More Website Exposure With Google Adwords
AdWords is Google’s advertising program that allows businesses to buy ad space from Google and their partners.You create ads and choose keywords, which are words or phrases related to your business. When people search on Google using one of your keywords, your ad may appear next to or above the search results. When someone clicks on your ad, they land on your website where they can learn more about your business or make a purchase. This can be a great compliment to your search engine optimization efforts and can be a key strategy in your insurance marketing plan.
Create a Google+ Business Page and Update Often
Setting up a Google+ Page can make your business easier for people to find in Google’s search engine as well as simply for people searching the Google+ network for insurance agents. A Google+ page also gives you a forum in which to engage with current clients and prospects, sharing content with them, including photos and videos, as well as responding to any questions they may have. One of the biggest benefits to posting on Google+ is fact that everything is indexed by Google, so when you post about your products or services, your ranking gets a boost when people are searching for them.
