If you want to build your business, Google My Business is the place to be. This guide will help you get started with GMB and start growing your business fast!
Get On Google
Get on Google My Business. It’s free and it’s easy. Plus, it helps you get in front of your customers when they search for local businesses.
To add a listing to your Google account:
Sync your Google Account
To get started, log in to your GMB profile and click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Select “Linked Accounts” from the dropdown menu that appears.
Once you’re on this page, click “Connect Google Account.”
After you’ve done this, all you have to do is enter your email address and password for both GMB and your Google account—and that’s it! You now have a fully integrated business page on Google My Business and are ready to get started using some of its best features.
Answer Customer Questions
You can respond to all reviews, or just the positive ones. But don’t stop there! You should also respond to every unanswered question and review you receive. This will help your customers feel like they’ve received personalized attention from an actual human being, which is a great way to increase trust and loyalty. In addition, Google has recently made it possible for businesses that have been reviewed by customers (but not yet reviewed themselves) to leave informative responses without being seen as “review bombing” – so this is a win-win!
Add Photos and Video
Add photos of your business, staff and products. Make sure they are high quality and clear. You can also add video of your business and staff by uploading a short video clip to YouTube and then embedding it in GMB.
Video testimonials from customers are the best way to show off the positive experience that people have had with your company’s services or goods; however, if you don’t have any yet, don’t worry! Just reach out to your happy customers and ask them if they would be willing to record their experiences on camera for you so that you can post them on Google My Business listings for other potential customers to see when searching for businesses like yours online…
Use a consistent image style
You want people to recognize your business in the crowd. To make this happen, you need to use a consistent image style. This means using:
Complete all fields in the About section
Once you’ve added all of your business information, you’re ready to move on to the next step.
In the About section of your GMB listing, add in:
Phone number (and/or website)
Physical address (street address) and city/state/zip code
Description of your business and its category(ies)
Verify Your Business (it’s free)
Verifying your business on Google My Business is the first step to getting your listing live in Google Search. When you verify your business, you’ll receive a verification code via text message or email which can be used to request further details about your company directly from the Google support team. This is how they’ll confirm that you really own the business and understand how it works (and are not just some random person trying to steal information). Before completing this step of verification, make sure you have all the details ready for them so it doesn’t take longer than necessary!
Get on GMB and improve your search rankings for free!
There are several ways to improve your search rankings for free:
If you’re looking to grow your business and get more customers, GMB is the place to start. It’s free and easy to set up, and it takes just a few minutes each day. Once you’ve verified your business, keep an eye out for new features that will help you connect with customers in even more ways.
