Benefits of Google My Business

If you are trying to find a local service provider nowadays, where do you think of looking first? Well, back then it used to be Yellow Pages or a newspaper, the things have changed. Today, the norm now is to use the internet, such as Google.

We find ourselves searching for what we need such as “Chicago kitchen sink fix” or “Chicago garage door repair”. The fortunate thing is that we will quickly find a few locals businesses immediately. The unfortunate part is that if you’re not listened in the search results you are immediately taken out of consideration.

The ideal situation we’d like to be in is to see a display that instantly gives customers your location, address, hours of operation, phone number, link to your website and customer reviews. This is definitely possible and achieved with Google My Business.

This was found in the Google maps section, at the top of the search, and I immediately visited the website to learn more about their services!

It take a few hours to set up an account, but don’t worry, I usually do it for my clients, if you need help, contact me!

By doing this, you can increase your chances of being found online and thus collecting revenue.

Google created an experiment and discovered that about 50% of mobile consumers that search for a local business visit it within a day of the search, and 18 percent of consumers make a purchase. Does this sound like something your business could benefit from? :)

Contact me if you have any questions and I’d love to help out!
