It’s likely that your business is already listed on Google, but if you haven’t yet ‘verified it’ or updated the information then you could be missing out on traffic to your site, customers to your shop and ultimately sales. This is particularly important in this COVID-era, where engaging with your customers and providing the correct information about your business can be the difference between keeping the tills ringing or not.
Google My Business (GMB) is a free tool that allows you to manage how your business appears on Google Search and Google Maps. By verifying your business, you can add your business name, location, and trading hours; you can monitor and reply to customer reviews and add product or location photos. You can also keep your customers informed about your business - so if you’re currently operating a reduced service or are closed due to COVID-19, your GMB profile is the easiest way to keep your customers informed.
Your GMB profile helps to maximise your online presence and serves your business information to the millions of people who are searching for local services and products on a daily basis. Google now gives precedence to local business listings over websites, which makes business listings more important than ever and a key part of the buying journey for your customers.
To make using GMB as simple and seamless as possible, we've integrated it with Maybe* so you can view, edit and access your business listings from within your Maybe* account.
