I am a landlord in the mountains of Pennsylvania along with the other things I do. Part of this means that there is a need to think differently when advertising vacancies. For example, advertising in the local news paper gives a mixed quality of potential tenants and advertising online through the popular websites such as Trulia, Realtor, etc., has it's own problems along with being expensive.
For now, I have created a single page mobile web site, though I have not yet decided on a domain name, perhaps another question, and I expect that I can compete rather well for local search. No other landlords have a web site or other online presence that ranks at all so the competition is basically zero except for the commercial sites.
As part of this new effort, I am considering using Google My Business.
Being a landlord, our business means that we do not always want to advertise our business. This makes sense considering that we can only help people when we have vacancies. Duh... As well, landlords seem to get more nuts than the Baltimore Nut Company. For this reason, other than the address, I would like to add and remove the phone number as needed on both the web site and with Google My Business.
Question: Is it possible to toggle the display of the phone number on and off in Google My Business as needed?
As a side note, landlords are constantly harangued by inquiries and sales pitches. We, as a group like to stay private as a result. Does having a listing with Google My Business mean more sales advertisements in our mail and on our phone? This is my real concern and why I want to toggle the phone number. I want to rank my site, advertise in a smarter way for a more quality tenant, and still keep relatively private.
