In-depth guide on How To Get Started with Google My Business

The many benefits of having local business listings in Google's search results has made having a Google My Business listing essential for those trying to get found online. You can now create and manage a Google My Business listing without even logging into your Google account, but there are still many important features that you might not know about if you've never set up a Google My Business account before.

How to create a Google My Business listing

If you have a business, you need a Google My Business listing. It's free, it's easy to use, and it's the only way to make sure that people searching for your business find what they're looking for.

What is Google My Business?

Google My Business simply connects your company to customers who are searching for you on Google Maps and other Google products. When someone searches for your business on their phone or desktop, they'll see your address, hours of operation, reviews from customers, and more. They can also click through to get directions to your location, learn more about your services, or contact you directly by calling or messaging through the platform.

What do I need to create a listing?

You'll need a few things:

-A physical location with an address that can be pinned on a map (you can also create virtual locations).

-A phone number that customers can call when they want to reach you.

-A website where people can learn more about what you do.

Create your Google My Business dashboard

Google My Business is a vital tool for small business owners who want to explore the power of search. We recommend taking the time to set up your profile and monitor your success, as a local business without an effective online presence will see fewer potential customers and higher costs due to incomplete information. By adding or editing your Google My Business information, you will take an important step towards improving your visibility in addition to determining what potential keywords or strategies are rated best by search engines.
