Make a Splash in Your Local Community with Google My Business

You know the business panel that pops up on the right-hand side of your Google search results? That’s Google My Business. It’s a powerful tool designed to help customers when they search for (and connect with) specific types of businesses in their local area, and is linked to Google Maps.

Boost Search Engine Optimization

In addition to making sure people can find you, Google My Business is a great way to build credibility in your local area. You can add images and updates about your business, and use the review function to connect with your customers and respond to feedback. It creates a real sense of openness. The first step is to claim your listing, and fill in all the required information. This will ensure Google knows exactly what you do, so it can accurately recommend your business to prospective customers. It’s a really simple marketing strategy that will yield great results in lead generation.
