Well I’m not going to expand on the WTF part but I will tell you that GMB stands for Google My Business and is represented in many ways, starting with a “box” that shows up on the right side of Google when you search for your company name and city – for example, if you search for DriveTraffic Digital Marketing, you will see a box on the right that shows photos, location, hours of business, etc.

This information is also used to populate your presence in Google Maps.

So you already have a presence or Google My Business (GMB) account – why do you need to attend a workshop? This nifty little box is starting to play more and more of a role in determining how visible you are in Google! And who can’t use more Google traffic?

In this workshop we will dig into:

  • Keeping your hours up to date (important if people visit your place of business in person).
  • Ensuring your address is correct.
  • Displaying your address or not.
  • Answering questions.
  • Reviews.
  • Photos and videos.
  • Google Posts.
  • Hacking Google Posts to last more than 7 days.
  • Tracking traffic from GMB to your website.
  • Showing offers.
  • Sharing products.
  • Scheduling appointments.
  • Allowing customers to text you.
  • Increasing your rank in Google Maps.


Please note that the training will take place in the basement of The Barley Mow on Richmond Road and is only accessible via stairs. Light refreshments will be served and you are welcome to order food if desired. In addition to the $20 entry fee we will also be collecting food donations for Ladies Who Hamper. You may donate money if you do not want to bring any of the following requested food items:

  • Small pouches of rice/pasta e.g. Side Kicks
  • Large bags of white rice
  • Boxes of assorted crackers
  • Candy canes
  • Christmas chocolates
  • Boxes of Kraft dinner

Event FAQ

When is This?

Wednesday November 28, 2018 from 11am to 2pm

Will lunch be served?

Lunch is not provided in the price of the ticket but prices have been kept low in order to allow you to order something from the menu if you so choose. Refreshments such as coffee, tea and water will be provided.

Should I bring my computer?

Absolutely! It would be a great idea for you to implement the changes to your GMB as you are learning! There are limited opportunities to plug in so make sure your battery is charged beforehand. You can also do much of this on your phone.

Do I Have to Bring a Food Donation?

Of course not 🙂 Prices were kept low so that you might bring something but a cash donation is also welcome, should you choose. Darlene will use any cash donations to purchase items that are needed for Ladies Who Christmas Hamper and will help to pack hampers again this holiday season.
