Think of Google My Business is your local online business showcase. When local consumers are searching for products you offer online, your Google My Business profile is literally the first impression you get to make. Are you going to make the cut? Where are you listed? If you are listed is your profile as optimized as it should be to get an instant reaction and that coveted click that takes them to your listing?
Your Google My Business listing should be accurate, giving customers access to your business hours, your contact information, photos to showcase your company, your website URL, where you’re located, areas you serve, and more. If this information is inaccurate or missing key pieces it can turn these customers away and send them to the competition.
Your GMB profile is extremely important. If it’s not properly managed, monitored, and kept updated with accurate information, you are losing what is probably considered the most coveted and let’s not forget, absolutely free, assets in the world of online marketing.
At this point, if you didn’t realize, now you know it’s critical to success. But how do you know what information to post? Are there things that you should keep private? How do you make sure everything stays relevant and updated?
