If you’re not using Google My Business, you’re missing out on a lot of potential customers.
The more information your business has on the web, the better chance it will have to be found by people searching for products and services you provide in their area. That’s where Google My Business comes in. It delivers details at a glance to people searching for information about local businesses on the web. Customers quickly acquire relevant information about your company when they find your business on Google. Your Google My Business listing shows your phone number, address, hours, a map, and more. Your Google Business Listing is a valuable and convenient tool that can help grow any small business with an online presence into something much bigger than what it was before!
It’s simple: You want to make sure that customers are finding you. Don’t let them click to visit your competitor instead because they can’t find you!
Here’s how to manage your business profile directly on Google:
- Sign in to the Google Account you used to sign up for Google My Business.
- To find your Business Profile, search on Google for your exact business name. You can also search for “my business.”
- To manage your Business Profile, select View profile.
It only takes 10 minutes to create an account and start adding important details about your business so that people can easily find it online. Google My Business will allow you to add your logo and photos related to your business too. You can list out and describe the products and services you offer. You can also manage and respond to customer reviews. The more thoroughly you complete your GMB profile with relevant company information, the better the chances of it being discovered online in Google Searches.
In addition to the basic setup of your Google My Business profile, you can post updates and promotions, just as you would do on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. These posts are like free advertising to help your business presence stand out, so why not take advantage of the opportunity?
If Innovast Digital Marketing creates content for your businesses’ social media accounts, we will also oversee your Google My Business presence as a service included in your monthly package at no extra charge. That way, your brand’s online content is always fresh, relevant, and up-to-date.
