  • Its tough to run a business, what makes it REALLY tough...

    Is when you see on Google Maps some AZZ clown has added a word to my business name! It has not been on there long...a couple weeks at most. Has he stole any business?? I will never know. One customer is one to many!

    I noticed this today....so I call the number, this is what transponded...

    Him- hello
    Me- Is this XYZ plumbing?
    Him- Yes it is.
    me- What kind of plumbing do you do?
    Him- We do it all.
    Me- Do you have a plumbing license? Do you have a Contractors license?
    Him- Yes we have them both.
    Me- And this is XYZ plumbing?
    Him- Yes.
    Me- No its not, I own XYZ plumbing, the name, the company, and I alone am registered by the State of Illinois to business under this name.
    Him- ........
    me- It is against the law to advertise plumbing without the correct license. Remove plumbing from your ad.
    Him- Ok.

    Tomorrow I call the State, Sec of State, and the Inspector. If it is still on google, I dispute it.

    The phone number is a cell...and is coming from the city of Chicago limits. This thief is trying to run on my coat-tails. The address he even lists is a vacant lot.

    You must be absolutely steaming. The guy is running a business under a name registered by you?? I think they make custom concrete shoes for thieves like that.

      Thanks for the heads up!

      I'm going to google and yahoo my name, to check.

      How do you think he got your password to change the info?

      Might want to change your banking account password while your at it.

        I would not be too worried, In my experience nobody has ever found me on google or yahoo even when I paid for search marketing!

              Really? Maybe I'm just doing something wrong then. It was driving people to my site, but wasn't making the phone ring.

              It's Hebert, BTW, pronounced A-Bear, I know it doesn't make sense, it's cajun french.

                Many industries are moving into having a web presence. Probably in five years it will be norm and your business will suffer if you are not online.

                If you want to have an edge over a traditional website, then incorporate blogging into your site. Use frequent blog entries (4-6 times per month) to upload pictures, talk about your company, who you are, the region you live in, the industry, helpful tips for customers, etc. Anything to make you more personable and to give an edge over static web pages. Plus, the search engines will be all over frequently updated content.
