Registering your details on Google Maps is a simple and straightforward way to raise the online profile of your organisation, group or charity.
It will also make it easier for residents to independently find and make use of the diverse range of services available to them throughout Slough. Additionally it can enable organisations that are supporting people, to signpost individuals to relevant groups and services.
By having a Google Maps listing, the benefits include:
Once you’re registered, Google will list your organisation’s location, display your organisation’s hours, photographs, general information and user reviews. This assists in enhancing the visibility of your organisation on internet searches further.
In preparation for adding your details, you will need the following:
Adding your organisation is very straightforward. To help you with this process, the council has created a series of short YouTube tutorial videos to take you through it all.
Do you run regular sessions or opportunities for people to take part in something? Such as a yoga class, walking group or social club?
If so, you can promote your activities for free on the Open Sessions platform.
This website will complement your Google Maps listing, providing a unique and innovative way of advertising the sessional-based programmes you run.
It will also allow your activities to be openly searchable across the internet, as well as appear on a new activity finder being developed by the Public Health team. The activity finder works like a search engine bar, allowing users to search for activities in their local postcode area.
To start promoting your activities, register for Open Sessions. Once you have an account, you can start uploading details of your sessions to the site.
