G-M-B?. . . Google My Business!

Google My Business is a hot topic in the digital marketing industry. 

But what even is Google My Business? The short answer: it’s a free local business listing provided by Google. This displays your business information on Google Maps and searches. The listing features your location as well as everything from pictures and reviews, to your hours and recent updates. It also guides potential and current customers to get directions, links for potential customers to call, text or visit your website, and even share your business with their friends!

So, why is it important?

By having a verified GMB, your company is highlighted at the top of Google search results and provides customers with the information they want quickly and easily. You’ll also show up directly on Google Maps. If you don’t have one, your company won’t pop up when customers search for companies like yours! If your company does show up on Google, but is not validated, others can claim your business on Google and edit your information. 

Need more convincing?

Google My Business provides analytics on who is visiting your profile and what they are using it for. This can help you better understand who your target market is. Seeing what people are clicking on and how they’re connecting  will give you some behind the scene knowledge on your audience. It also shows insights on what you can do to get ahead of your competitors.

So, how do you make one?
