If you Google “What is the #1 website in the world?”, it’ll show you that Google ranks # 1 globally at 60.49 billion visits per month. This means creating a Google My Business profile is an important way to attract new customers to your business through Google search and Maps.
What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is a free business listing from Google. It lets you provide photos and information about your business, like location, hours, services, and products. And creating this profile is a great way to increase visibility on Google services like Google Business, Google Search, Google Maps, etc.
Why you need Google My Business
Google is the ultimate search platform, and it works like a referral system in real life. A Google Business Profile helps people find your business when they’re looking for products or services in a local area. The information you provide will help searchers find where your business is and how to get there. Essentially, it’ll appear when people search for listings nearby.
Building trust through review
When it comes to making a purchase decision, consumers often base their decisions on what another consumer says, rather than what the business says. Additionally, most consumers tend to develop an opinion on a product or service after going through a few reviews.
You control your information
You are in control of your Google My Business profile. Google allows you to control or update contact information, business hours, or other details. You can post articles to share updates, news or promotions.
Optimize your profile
Google determines ranking in local searches, based on these factors: relevance (how well your business matches a search), prominence (how well-known your business is, SEO-wise), and distance (how far your location is from the searcher).
