Google My Business is an online tool that helps businesses manage their online presence on the Google platform. It’s free and easy to use. Google My Business can be described as both an online directory listing, and a social media profile.

With regard to an online directory, the owners of businesses design and claim ownership of their Google My Business listing and provide it with important details such as hours, location and images.

Owners of businesses can post to their Google My Business profile to share information on social media platforms. These posts, like social media stories are temporary and disappear after a week. Customers can also upload images of your business to your listing, without having to write a review.

Your Google My Business page is so important

A GMB page is a great way to ensure your company’s presence in search results when people search for your name. This local listing provides a variety of essential information to your customers, such as:

  • Name of the business
  • Address
  • Hours of operation
  • Telephone number
  • Website
  • Directions
  • Review
  • Questions and answers
  • Popular times
  • Average price
  • Profiles on social media
  • Photos

You might have seen pages of other businesses in local searches.

It may seem strange that you would need a GMB site if your company already has one. Users these days want information fast and as easy as possible. For someone who is simply searching for store hours, typing in the domain name or clicking on your site might seem like too much. This information is more helpful if it appears right at the top of the search results page. Google has neatly and elegantly placed all the information in one place, as users may have difficulty navigating your site to find important business information.

GMB can also help you attract new customers to your company. Google uses your smartphone’s GPS location to personalize search results. This is because the majority of searches are made from smartphones. Google can recommend your store to customers searching for recommendations because your GMB page accurately maps your store’s location. Your coffee shop can be recommended to customers who ask Google for recommendations of coffee shops nearby. This can bring down your customer acquisition costs quite dramatically.

How to claim your Google My Business Page

Are you unsure if your business has a Google My Business Page? Google your business name to find out if it is listed on the right-hand side of the search results.

This will take you to a page asking you to verify that you are connected to the business. This process stops random Internet users from claiming the business page. You can either tell Google to call or text your business phone number or tell them to send you a code via email (just make sure you have a business email account, otherwise this method won’t work).
