SEO for customers used to be a long term and very expensive commitment. Reason being that it used to center around keywords and search terms that Google matched pages and returned results for in search inquiries. Today it’s much more relevant to services offered and location, so if someone is looking for a “plumber in Jacksonville, FL” the results returned will match both the inquiry and the proximity of the business to the searcher. Google gets that information from both their Maps and Google My Business listings. With our service we strive to put your listing in front of searchers specifically searching for your business and products-making it much more probable that the searcher will contact you.
And our service is one of the least expensive means of maximizing your online presence. Unlike traditional SEO, you pay one time and reap the benefits for years to come. And as an added benefit, we give you all of the photo and video files on a jump drive, for you to use in any other use you wish!

The importance of photos representing a business or its products/services can’t be understated. To put it mildly, photos boost a listing tremendously in both usefulness and in Google serving that businesses listing to interested searchers. According to a recent BrightLocal study:
The reason photos on your listing are so important is that Google, through Artificial Intelligence, can determine what a picture is about, can read text on the image, and index the photo as it relates to your business. Here is a quick video on how this works showing the results from a photo we uploaded to their test portal online:
With that in mind, we take images related to a businesses products, services and personnel and use professional editing techniques to bring them out in the best light possible. Our experience shows that strategically placed images increases engagement with listings dramatically. Some samples of our listing product photography are below, click on each for a larger view:
All images, whether taken by us or taken by you and sent to us to use get our photo enhancement.
We don’t stop with just product photos for your listing, we also give you up to 10 specially edited social media photos to use with your social media accounts. These are perfect to highlight specials, bring awareness to products carried and boost posts with ads. We can edit these to include whatever information you wish, and additional edits can be made for a nominal fee (such as price specials, etc). Or you can just use them as is on an ongoing basis.

We take interior and exterior photos of your office or facility and use professional equipment and editing techniques. These photos again help with the optimization of your listings. All of our photos are geo-tagged with precise data to help Google exactly pinpoint your location on their maps, and that helps with localized and voice based GPS search results.

According to a recent study, adding video to your listing or website increases organic traffic by 157%. Most businesses do not utilize video on their Google My Business listing simply because they are not aware that they can add it. With our service we produce a 30 second (the limit imposed on videos for the GMB listing) video highlighting the major services, product lines and or procedures of your business. We utilize stock footage, graphics and background music to make it as professional as possible.
Below are several mock examples to give you an idea of the finished product and how it looks:
