028 The Local Method – Using Google Plus Local As A Lead Generation Tool – The New iPhone & Your Business

by Albert on September 29, 2012


On this episode of the show my guest is Steve Querio of Upward climb and we are going to be talking about Using Google Plus Local as a Lead Generation Tool. We also look at the what the new iPhone and it’s new operating system means for your business and I talk about how I am about to go into super productive mode.

What The New iPhone & iOS 6 Mean To Your Local Business

Apple has just released it’s new iPhone 5 and it has already sold 5 Million units in the first week. These numbers are impressive. But what does it mean for you, a business owner?

The iPhone 5 and iOS 6 uses an improved voice controlled assistant named Siri. She responds to your commands faithfully. She will even tell you where the best places to buy your products and services are if you ask her. This means as millions of people start to use Siri to find where they should eat a great meal, hire a photographer or get their next Chiropractic adjustment, you better hope your business is going to be one of the one she recommends. That’s a bloody important thing to know.

Siri is using a service called Yelp to provide the answers to people’s questions. That means your business had better be signed up for this free service to be included in the fun and in the profits.

Go to www.Yelp.com or www.Yelp.ca and create an account and fill it out completely. Then get your customers to leave you reviews there.

If you need help you can search Google or you can contact me albert@thelocalmethod.com and we can set up a call to see how I can help.
