It’s amazing to me how many small business owners don’t know and take full advantage of this FREE tool. Everyone would like to be found on Google, and this is one way to share important information without spending your money.

At the very minimum, you should add your business name, location, website, hours of operation, a short description, and a few pictures of your business. Pictures can be of your products also. When someone is searching for the keywords that relates to your business, especially locally, you have a chance to come up in organic searches. Follow this link to start.

As a next step, you should be posting here regularly. Consider it one of your social media outlets. With regular posts about your business (helpful, new happenings, entertaining), Google will always have fresh content of you. Moreover, this will be content with keywords associated to your business. It’ll help your SEO as well.

Google provides accurate feedback on many things. How many times you appeared in search views and map views, what are the keywords people found you by, if you received any new reviews, etc. Wouldn’t you want to know what people are looking for in your area of specialty?

With high quality content, patience and diligence, Google My Business can bring your potential customers closer.
