Google My Business is a free online platform for listing business information like your address, contact information, and reviews. It helps businesses increase their visibility among local Google users on all Google platforms
It is best for all businesses wanting to increase exposure in Google search results and for local businesses looking to ensure nearby customers find them via area-specific Google searches. For example, while a user is on Google Maps, your business name will show on the map when they get close the business address you have listed on Google.
Businesses that need Google My Business
Service-based businesses: It allows business owners to specify the areas they service by inputting states, cities, and ZIP codes. This allows them to accurately target customers who would benefit from what they offer (as at when they really want them).
Franchises: It allows franchise owners to set up multiple locations for their stores so that, when people within one of their store’s vicinities search for their products, brands, names, or services, the closest business location will be listed.
Business with physical stores: It also offers features for showcasing a brick-and-mortar business (including location photos, videos, and customer reviews) and showing local customers how they can contact and visit the business (via directions to the business, phone and address information, and hours of operation).
It’s simple as ABC…
