Bonus: Google My Business Management
Did you know that Google lets you post promotional updates directly to your Google My Business (“GMB”) page? It can be a great way to connect with customers who search for your business name on Google — which many do just before buying!
The catch? Google only displays these updates for a week.
The solution? LocalCrowd — which now lets you schedule GMB posts and automatically re-post them when they expire.

FAQs for LocalCrowd Review Management
How can review management boost my sales?
Citation and review management boosts organic (unpaid) search positioning for local and general search terms. It can also get your business featured in the “map pack” above other organic search results.
Almost all consumers now search for local businesses online. In fact, local search terms account for 46% of all Google searches and 16% of local searches on mobile lead to a sale within 24 hours. So local search performance can make or break a small business.
Voice search is growing rapidly, too — with customers notably checking details like shop opening hours. Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Assistant find that information on directories and business listings like Google My Business.
How can I handle unfair feedback?
Everyone gets negative feedback at times — and it can be valuable. Unfair reviews can be damaging, though. So they need to be managed. Some sites require you to respond in public. Others will let you check poor reviews before they are published. In either case, LocalCrowd provides prompt review alerts, a cross-platform dashboard and optional screening tools.
How can I get more reviews?
LocalCrowd provides editable templates for requesting reviews, with optional pre-screening of ratings as noted above. You can link these to any site with a review URL, and schedule friendly reminders for reviewers if needed. It can send these through a special email platform to maximise deliverability — or even by SMS.
What causes inconsistent listings?
Your listings are controlled by third-party sites. Over time, updates to those sites and accidental duplication can create inconsistencies. LocalCrowd helps you find and fix these errors, within the limits of those platforms.
