Benefits of using Google My Business

Manage your information

06-Make your listing awesome

Manage the information that Google users see when they search for your business, or the products and services that you offer. Businesses that verify their information with Google My Business are twice as likely to be considered reputable by consumers. When people find your business on Google Maps and Search, make sure that they have access to information such as your hours, website and street address.

Interact with customers

13-Respond to reviews

Read and respond to reviews from your customers, and post photos that show off what you do. Businesses that add photos to their listings receive 42% more requests for driving directions on Google Maps and 35% more clicks through to their websites than businesses that don’t.

Understand and expand your presence

02-Control Your Business Info

See insights on how customers searched for your business, and where those customers are coming from. You can also see information such as how many people called your business directly from the phone number displayed on local search results in Search and Maps. And when you’re ready, seamlessly create and track the performance of AdWords Express campaigns to spread the word about your work.

It’s easy to start and free to use.
