What Is Headlights?

The Local Lighthouse team identifies drivers of popular rideshare apps such as Uber and Lyft who spend the most time driving each week in Knoxville and surrounding communities. We work with the most active drivers to place tablets in their vehicles for the promotion of Google My Business listings.

What Is Google My Business?

It is a revolutionary feature of Google. Google My Business or GMB enables business owners to list and manage info regarding their business online. It helps people find any services or place nearby their location.

With Google My Business, you can easily get information about any company or service provider including its location, website, phone number, posts, and working hours. As a bonus, the company reputation is also for all to see via their service or product reviews.

How Important is Google My Business?

In 2019 Google My Business is the top lead source for local businesses. These listings often appear above any website link in Google Search (unless you are paying for Google Ads). In fact, nearly 60% of Organic traffic to your website comes through Google My Business. Furthermore, more than 70% of local business phone calls are triggered in Google My Business.

How Does Headlights Intergrate With Google My Business to Improve Local Visibility?

Engagement is one of the most important signals for any Google My Business listing. Google wants to see interaction with a business listing. Through the eyes of Google interaction = popularity which then determines how often that listing is shown on category level searches such as 'restaurant near me', 'real estate agents Knoxville', 'best attorney in Maryville', etc. The Headlights platform shows your listing to real users and it simulates interaction by clicking on Posts, scrolling through reviews, and opening the listing on a variety of keyword searches. This, of course, is all happening while a captive audience in the back of an Uber or Lyft is watching the tablet screen, taking in rich brand information. In essence, your business is benefitting two-fold. First, from the simulated engagement and secondly from thousands of eyeballs each week either learning about your business for the first time or having your brand reinforced for their next purchase.
