This year businesses have been presented with unprecedented economic uncertainty and countless challenges. Local businesses are vital to boost our whole economy, and we are very proud to support local business growth with our technology, solutions and digital marketing tools.
Today we are incredibly excited to announce a new collaboration with Australian-owned private company DigitalMaas. DigitalMaas is an award-winning local marketing platform that specialises in helping businesses manage their multiple location listings and store location information online on Google My Business.
“Through a clever combination of automation, intuitive software and technology we bring easily accessible tools to ALL businesses in this region, regardless of how large or small they are. There is no average sized customer, I feel too often customers are unfairly segmented out of much needed assistance for growth and assistance from many marketing companies. The collaboration is in direct response from ReachLocal and DigitalMaas putting our minds together to create the ultimate package for small business, right in the middle of the COVID crisis. Andrew and I challenged each other to create a compelling solution, one that provides the utmost value and immediate results for business owners. The goal was to bring to market an entry-marketing solution with a price point that can be provided under $100 per month. This led to the development of our ‘recovery package’ which is uniquely positioned to help guide businesses to grow out of the COVID19-impacted market.”

Why is Google My Business so Important for Local Businesses?
Local listings such as Google My Business are crucial for businesses to showcase their store information to online searchers. It’s where the customer lands to find all the information without having to visit a website.
When you claim a Google My Business listing for your business, you increase the likelihood of appearing in Google’s Local Pack and on Google Maps, and of ranking high in organic search. If your business is local, having a Google My Business listing is essential for your SEO.
