. This is the location page for the Calgary location, not Oklahoma City.
As a result, people from your area will find it hard to discover information about your business, even when they search for it by name.
No Google Business Profile
An optimized Google Business Profile is essential for showing your business in Google Maps and local search results.
When Spray Net does get around to creating a GBP for your business, it seems unlikely they will optimize it to result in high search rankings and new leads.
No Local Search Results
Since you have no local website or Google Business Profile, no local search results point to your business. Below are the Google Maps results for people searching “brick staining near me” from your zip code, 73013.
The good news is that your competition currently ranking for this term can easily be outranked.
Poor Performing Facebook Ads
You mentioned two issues with the current Facebook Ad campaign that Spray Net manages on behalf of your business.
The campaign is not focused on painting brick homes.
You receive very few leads.
After researching what search terms are currently driving traffic to the
It is easy to see what search terms are the most valuable for them to focus on; “brick staining” and “brick staining.” These are the number two and three keywords driving traffic to their website. The keyword that ranks number one is “spray net.” This data supports your thinking on what offers to use on Facebook.
Zero Control over Marketing
You are unable to do any marketing for your Spray Net business. Therefore, you are entirely dependent on Spray Net to do your marketing. This would be acceptable if Spray Net were strong at marketing. However, it appears they are weak at marketing.
Currently, your marketing efforts are producing minimal results. This appears to be the result of you not being able to perform your own marketing. The good news is the cause of this poor performance is clear to see and can be solved with a solid plan, consistent effort, and the right technology.
Solution to Issues
Objective: Dominate the Oklahoma City market for House Painting Service
You want to create a separate house painting brand and website to collect leads for the Spray Net franchise. While keeping the cost of acquiring a lead as low as possible, we have arrived at the following strategy: Local Market Domination.
This strategy combines a local website, Google Business Profile optimization, local search engine optimization, and local Facebook Ads.
Below is a description of all the actions included in this strategy.
Website Optimized for Local Search
Your business needs a website that is professional-looking and optimized to drive traffic to your local market. It also requires forms to capture leads, online chat to answer common questions, analytic tracking, and integration with your CRM.
Our strategy includes building a website for the services you want to highlight for homeowners in the zip codes you want to target.
You mentioned the idea of creating a generic house painting website. I think this is the best way forward since you will be able to drive people to the website for various topics resulting in more traffic to your website than you would for a website focused solely on Spray Net.

Below is an example of a campaign we completed for a law firm in Southern California, a high competitive area.
The number in each circle represents the ranking for a particular keyword in the area the circle covers.
Increase Customer Reviews & Ratings
We use our CRM and marketing automation software, Liftegy, to automate review requests for Google and any other review platform, i.e. Home Advisor or Facebook.
Our review management system is unique because we only allow positive reviews to be sent to Google or other platforms such as Home Advisor and Facebook. If one of your customers has a negative experience, we will capture their feedback and send it to you, not Google so that you can respond.
This system results in more reviews and higher ratings for your business.
The number of reviews and your average rating greatly affect your ability to drive leads from Google Maps.
