If your business relies on local customers you should claim your Google business listing ASAP. Using Google My Business puts your business info on Search, Maps and Google+ so that customers can find you, no matter what device they’re using.
Here’s why you should take the time to register your business on Google business:
Once you claim your business on Google you’ll be able to verify that your business is real and confirm its exact location. As a result, people searching for a business in your industry, or your exact business, will find you. Customers will also be able to get precise directions to your place of business.
You will be able to choose the category, or categories, that your business belongs to so you show up in the right search results.
Including your contact info will make it easy for people to find your website and your phone number. With a click of a button, potential customers can be at your website deciding if they want to do business with you.
By filling in your hours of operation, customers can quickly find whether or not you’re open. There’s also a section for populating special hours if you’re closed for the holiday season or other reason.
You will be able to write a paragraph or two about your business so customers know what sets you apart from the others.
Upload photos of your business, your products, your staff.
Customers can leave you ratings and reviews which may help drive new people to do business with you.
