You can take full advantage of what Google offers by claiming your business on google to help your customers find you online and tell them the story of your business. And you know what’s great!? Google My Business is totally free!
Why should I have Google my business?
1. Manage how your business information appears to customers – across Google, including Search and Maps, using Google My Business—for free.
Google says, “Businesses that verify their information with Google My Business are twice as likely to be considered reputable by consumers.” – that’s huge numbers for not a lot of time or effort to set this up and manage it.
2. Interact with customers new and old and tell them the story of your business.
In your Google My business profile you can read and respond to customer reviews, and post photos to show off what you do and celebrate your team. According to Google, “businesses that add photos to their listings receive 42% more requests for driving directions on Google Maps and 35% more clicks through to their websites than businesses that don’t.”
3. Take it to the next level!
See insights on how customers searched for your business, and where those customers are coming from. You can also see information like how many people called your business directly from the phone number displayed on local search results in Search and Maps. And when you’re ready, seamlessly create and track the performance of AdWords campaigns to spread the word about your work.
