Online marketing has long been a useful tool for small businesses. Many businesses have been using online marketing for years, and there seems to be no end to what it can do for your business.
With this in mind, let’s look at the latest updates in this week of internet marketing.
Google has recently added messaging options in Search and Maps to make it easier for customers to get in touch with businesses to ask questions about their services and any other relevant information. This allows businesses to give quick answers to questions that might not be answered by the Business’ Profile, and enables another form of connection with potential customers.
However, with this new feature comes the importance of maintaining adequate response times to these queries, as taking a long time to respond could be seen as a minus for many potential clients.
Additionally, Google will give more insight to Google My Business users into how people are finding your business, specifically what search queries are being used and how people are searching for you (i.e. via Google Maps or Search, or whether they found you from a mobile device or computer). These new tools can help you strategize your marketing efforts more efficiently, as you will know specifically who to target and how.
Google recently created a FAQ on Core Web Vitals Insights, which present consolidated guidance for quality signs vital to achieving an excellent user experience on the web.

Most business owners or brands desire to create a positive social impact on the world, and to a certain extent, many companies are also practicing it.
A recent global report by Accenture observed that consumers/customers are more inclined to buy products and services from a company when their brand objectives include positive involvement in social issues that matter to the customer.
If you wish to align your business strategy with social impact and are wondering how and where to start, Facebook’s newly launched website will help your business discover innovative ideas to address social needs.
This website also includes many tools and resources on how to hold a fundraising event and how your business can donate to a social cause. It also presents a wide variety of case studies of profitable brands that have positively impacted the world.
Google Ads launched Discovery ads in 2019 and made them accessible globally. Discovery Ads is a visual ad format that appears across the Google Discover Feed (displayed on the Google app’s home page or the Google.com homepage on mobile), Gmail, and YouTube home feed.
The ad looks and format vary based on which platform it displays on, but the main takeaway of discovery ads is that it concentrates on large visually-rich ad experiences.
Google published updates for Discovery ads on Tuesday. According to this update, Discovery ads now include two layouts to help you drive engagement with customers: the latest is the 4:5 portrait aspect ratio, which allows you to visually exhibit your products and services to be more noticeable among your customers as they scroll. At the same time, lead form extensions help your users share their details with you immediately from your ad in Gmail.
Early adopters of Discovery ads have noticed exceptional results-driving customer action, besides their existing media.
If you have been driving media campaigns for social media or video platforms, you can use Discovery ads to make use of your richest creative assets and most engaging messages. For help creating your first campaigns, visit the Google Ads Help Center.
