Why Google My Business is Important For Your Business
A Google my business listing is as important as placing a sign on your business or having a website and social media.
You might have been searching for a product or service and noticed that some businesses are listed on the right side of the page. Have you ever wondered how to get you business listed? Well wonder no longer, we are going to explain what it is and how to get one.
What is Google my business?
Google My Business is like a social network for businesses. What your Google My Business page will include depends on the kind of product or service you sell. It can be used by businesses with or without a storefront, but you will need a business address. You can use your home address but we strongly discourage that approach.
The benefits of Google my business
If you’ve got a storefront, this will make it easier for customers to find their way to you. If you don’t have a physical location or you are working from home it will make it easier for people to find you when searching. Aside from that, a Google My Business page also allows people to leave reviews of your business. (Check out the star ratings on the results example above).
How can I get a Google my business listing?
Google My Business is free. All you need to do is register, fill in your details, upload photos and verify your business. (You verify your business by returning a postcard to prove your business is based at that address.)
Now, all of this may seem easy enough. But of course, it’s just one more thing to do added to the list of things that you already do.
