Maybe one of your goals for 2014 was to upgrade your office space and move to a bigger location. First of all, congrats on the new move! It’s always nice to get a fresh start and make yourself at home in a bright, new location. During the moving process, you’ll definitely want to pack up all of your physical items, but that’s not all. Make sure that you don’t forget to move your online presence as well. In order to make sure customers can still find you online, and still get proper directions to your office, you’ll want to update your information online. After all, you don’t want people showing up to your old address expecting your services only to find an abandoned building. Here is what you will want to update as you prepare to make the big move.
Your business address
Make sure to update your address everywhere you’re listed online, including Google Places, Yelp, Bing, Yahoo!, and the Chamber of Commerce, to name a few. It can take a while to update your profiles, and can also be difficult to remember everywhere you have an address listed, so plan some extra time to dedicate to this task. If you need help, contact us at OrangeSoda and we will do it for you with our awesome LocalSync service.
In the event that you have a phone number change, make sure to update it across all networks. If possible, do everything you can to keep your old number. Then you don’t have to worry about making any changes, and can avoid any potential confusion.
Not only do you want to make sure your information is updated on other search friendly websites, but you will want to make sure your social media profiles are updated as well. This includes Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and more.
Remember that you are paying big bucks to try and get people to click through to your website. If you don’t update your advertisements, you run the risk of paying for an advertising budget with the wrong information. Before you even move, make sure all the text on your paid search campaigns are updated and ready to go.
Don’t get so caught up with updating your information across various networks, search engines, and citations, that you forget to update your own website. In fact, updating the contact information on your own website should probably be step one of your updating endeavors. Pretend this is Step 1.
If you outsource services that bill you automatically monthly, make sure you take the time to update your billing address. You don’t want to be left without a month of services you rely on because you forgot to update your address.
When moving your physical business location, make sure to follow the above steps in order to move your online location as well. For help with any of these services, call us today and we’ll be happy to help.
