If you own and manage a business or manage the marketing for a business then you should already be familiar with “Google My Business,” and have already started the process of setting it up. There are a lot of good reasons why you should make the commitment to do this. Here are a few.
1. PROFESSIONAL IMAGE
If your site comes up in a Google search or if someone is searching for your brand, Google My Business delivers a professional image right off the bat with buttons to your website, directions, click to call, address, reviews, hours, phone number and more. (see screen shot below)
2. SHOW OFF YOUR REVIEWS
Your reviews will become more important but Google My Business makes it easy to respond to reviews, ask for reviews, alert you when a new review happens. (see screen shot below)
3. PUT YOUR BUSINESS ON THE MAP!
This is how you get your location on the Map! That’s right, ever wonder how stores that just opened appear on the map? This is how. (see screen shot below)
