Google my Business: Secrets to Digital Marketing Success
In Partnership with Fruitful Marketing and Moxie Business Marketing, Google My Business specialist Geoff Roy from Leapfrog Internet Marketing will be leading this workshop.
Following the closure of Google+ in 2019, Google has focused their attention and investment into growing this platform. Whether a local tradesman or a multinational blue chip organisation, GMB (Google my Business) has become a crucial part of businesses online success.
With Google dominating search marketing in the UK (over 90% of all searches through this search engine), it is key to ensure your GMB is portraying your brand correctly as well as generating regular leads and enquiries.
In fact, for many searches by people in your local area, the Google Maps pack of three GMBs will show up above the list of websites on Google. This makes it even more important than your website to attract local and regional customers to your business.
Our course will cover all of the opportunities available from this platform, how to appear higher than your competitors and how to improve your profile to maximise your chances of success.

ABOUT YOUR TRAINERS
James Wright and Emma Louise Smith, experts at Fruitful MarketingⓇ & Moxie Business Marketing respectively have teamed up to tour the South East and share their secrets to digital marketing success! Highly respected within their fields, here’s more about them. In Partnership with Fruitful Marketing and Moxie Business Marketing, Google My Business & SEO specialist Geoff Roy from Leapfrog Internet Marketing will be leading this workshop.
Geoff Roy | GMB SEO Specialist
Geoff built his first business (stag weekends in Spain!) into a £1million turnover business by leveraging the power of Google, and using Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). Geoff now does for his 40+ clients, using sustainable SEO techniques to get websites on Google page 1, and get them generating a consistent stream of enquiries or sales into the business.
With over 20 years of experience in SEO, much has changed with Google over those years – he remembers a time when Google had no ads for example! In the last 3 or 4 years, Google has focused on searches from mobile devices, which now outnumber desktop searches. With this, they are showing Google My Business listings above website listings for more and more searches, making it an essential digital asset to fully leverage and optimise.
