Reduce Your Google Local Services Cost by 15%

By: Dave Squires, President, May 16, 2018
In the English language, when conflicting and contradictory ideas are expressed as a single concept we call it an oxymoron. Terms like ‘Deafening Silence’, ‘Virtual Reality’, ‘Original Copy’, and the old stand-by ‘Military Intelligence’ are classic examples.

any Google user to ask questions about a business and get answers from other Google users. Furthermore, people can ‘up-vote’ both questions and responses to increase their specific level of prominence. You can use this to your advantage.

Here’s the great thing about Q&As, any Google user can submit a question or a response. You can field questions that you think that your customers could have and proactively respond.
