Google for Business – What is it?

Verifying your business on Google means your address will show up on the Google map, at the top of the page, along with other similar businesses in your area. Google Places was created to make searches more relevant locally and give searchers access to a free online business directory. The listings are embedded into Google maps, Google search and Google earth, so that when a potential customer in your area is looking for produce/service you offer, your company will appear showing your address, phone number, website, location on the map and reviews of your business. A Google for Business entry is vital tool in gaining local business.

Google for Business – Why Do You Need It?

This is the most important feature for any business, because you want to be found in your catchment area and provide accurate information about your company such as contact details, location and opening hours. Although some industries might benefit from Google Places more than others e.g. restaurants, ever business can profit from being part of the online community. It is easy and free to set up and can be added on your website and email signature.

Useful Tip!

Customers can leave a review about your business, the more reviews you receive the higher up the listing you will be and the more likely a new customer will contact you. Adding photos and/or videos of your business, payment methods and opening hours can also help. Fully maximise your use of the keywords surrounding your business. The more information the better!
