Tip of the Month - You Don’t Need To Buy Google Ads For Your Business Name

Although there may be rare cases where a business doesn’t show up in search results for its own name, in almost all cases your company and your Google My Busines profile will be displayed when someone search your business name. If you’re paying for Google Ads for your business name, this means you’re paying to show up a third time. You’re paying to win a race you’ve already won. If you have a Google Ad up for your business name, you should be able to save yourself a bit of money by taking it down. Reach out if you have any questions about your circumstances!
