Brand MT, a Montana Department of Commerce program, has joined with Google to provide FREE use of the Google LOCL app for 2 years. Google LOCL can help you with your marketing challenges and help drive your internet presence.

Google dominates the internet searching: 97% of all internet searches are through Google. More than half of the searches are local searches – buyers want something near them!

Google listings present great opportunities because it gives buyers just the information they need. The search is the front line in the buyer’s journey.

Google Maps (through Google My Business) provides businesses and organizations with a compelling presence to attract and retain customers. However, most businesses don’t know how to win in the digital space and Google My Business can be a big challenge for users to learn and maintain.

Google LOCL is an all-in-one platform that helps you maximize your Google Maps marketing potential. Using LOCL you can change or update your Google My Business profile including managing photos, Hours, Special Events, etc.

LOCL has a social media connector feature that connects your social media accounts and reposts your content throughout your social media.

Join us on June 29 from 1:00 – 3:00 for a free presentation on what LOCL offers and how to use LOCL for your business or your organization.
