5 Reasons to Have a Google My Business Account
Posted on 06/24/2019
Let’s face it, Google is the clear leader in the search engine category. It’s become so ingrained in people’s everyday lives that it’s even used as a verb. Internet users flock to Google to find anything from the latest news to nearby restaurants. Google’s main purpose is to connect searchers to the quickest, most accurate answers.
One aspect of Google all organizations should take advantage of is Google My Business (GMB). GMB gives business owners more control over what people see when they search for their business. It’s completely free to use and only requires that you and your customers have some face-to-face interaction. Online-only businesses are no-gos. Your GMB Business Profile, the panel that appears on the right side of the Google results page, has a large impact on both your online and offline success. We’ll tell you how it does so.
1. GMB helps potential clients or customers find you locally.
2. GMB helps your business get on the map.
3. You can add photos that draw people to your GMB Business Profile.
4. It’s responsive to all devices.
5. Current clients or customers can leave reviews on your GMB Business Profile.
Having a Google My Business is key to effective SEO. Most people don’t even consider looking at the second page of Google results, so having a GMB account that boosts your rank can help your business achieve its goals.
