okay let's talk about Apple Maps for a

00:24

second now I've been a Google Maps user

00:26

for years a lot of us I think use Google

00:28

Maps and certainly a lot of us as local

00:30

businesses optimize our business for

00:32

Google but apples becoming critically

00:35

important why well on iOS devices

00:38

iPhones iPads Apple maps is the default

00:42

Maps app not Google that's important

00:46

because three out of four users of iOS

00:49

devices actually use Apple maps not

00:52

Google Maps so it's important that you

00:54

clean and optimize your Apple Maps

00:56

listing let's take a look at how this

00:58

looks right so here we are in the Apple

01:00

Maps we're going to do a quick search

01:01

here let's search for hair salons and

01:05

you can see it finds some local salons

01:08

nearby me all of these listings are

01:11

drawn from Apple Maps not Google all

01:16

right let's try another thing voice

01:17

search is becoming really big churches

01:21

near me also in voice search on iOS

01:28

devices or any Siri device for that

01:30

matter all the results from local

01:32

businesses are going to come from Apple

01:34

Maps

01:34

alright so how'd it go how about

01:35

claiming your Apple Maps listing you

01:38

went to maps Connect Apple comm we'll

01:40

put that link down in the description

01:41

here and when you go out here this is

01:45

the interface this is kind of like

01:46

Google my business but for Apple you're

01:49

going to have an Apple ID so if you

01:50

don't have one you're gonna need to

01:51

create one I'm gonna use mine right here

01:53

and go ahead and just sign in once

01:57

you've signed in you're going to see all

01:58

the listings you have associated with

02:00

your Apple ID account now this is not as

02:02

good as Google in that you can't have

02:04

multiple admins I'm sure to develop it

02:05

over time but you'll have to have an

02:07

Apple ID to log in and have this

02:09

business associated with it once you get

02:11

into your listing let's take a look at

02:12

some of the off

02:13

here right it's really basic you have

02:16

your basic business information name the

02:19

phone number category so that except

02:21

Apple pay

02:22

you have your basic location information

02:24

this is your address and you can set

02:27

your map here you also have your hours

02:29

no business hours like you get on google

02:32

or on Yelp and you have some links you

02:34

can put in your web Facebook Yelp

02:35

Twitter that's it it's really basic you

02:38

notice there's no reviews here Apple map

02:40

02:43

this is what you want to do you want to

02:44
