Increase Website Traffic For Fire & Security - Apple Maps
by Jo Shaer, on March 4, 2019
Looking for a way to increase website traffic to your Fire & Security website?
Apple no longer have the Google My Business app on their mobile devices by default. Instead, iPhones and iPads come with Apple's own map listing app - Apple Maps Connect.
This means that Fire & Security Systems installers have an extra free listing to create for their companies. But many of these business owners and directors don't know about it!
So they're not being seen by people searching for intruder alarms or access control on their Apple devices.
Fire & Security Systems Installers and Apple Maps
There are two important things you need to know about listings on Apple Maps.
1. You cannot list your business on Apple Maps if you work from home.
Their rules say:
We currently only accept businesses whose customers visit them and where we can confirm a physical presence.
No dedicated premises? No Apple Map listing.
This is a great way for accredited installation companies to stand out. The weekend engineers who work from their home garages can't have a listing on Apple Maps Connect.
2. Apple Maps comes with several hundred categories.
But we've saved you the bother of searching through them all. With thanks to Phil Rozek's fabulous cheatsheet.
