Harness the Power of Google My Business for Local Dominance

Google My Business (GMB) is a crucial tool for any business wanting to increase its online presence. Here are several reasons why it’s beneficial for your business:

Enhance Your Online Visibility: A GMB profile increases the visibility of your business on Google Search and Google Maps. The more comprehensive your GMB profile is, the higher your chances are of showing up in Google’s Local Pack, Local Finder, Google Maps, and organic rankings in general.

Reviews and Ratings: GMB provides a platform for customers to leave reviews. Positive reviews can enhance your business’s reputation and reassure new customers about the quality of your products or services.

Business Information Accuracy: With GMB, you have control over the information that Google displays about your business.

Showcase Your Business: GMB allows you to post photos and offers to your profile to showcase what you offer and highlight what sets you apart from competitors.

Booking Services: If you have a business that requires appointments, Google My Business allows you to take bookings directly from your profile.

How do I get my business on Google using Google My Business?

Google My Business provides a straightforward method for businesses to gain visibility on Google searches and maps, as well as engage with potential clientele. By simply registering for Google My Business (GMB), businesses can enhance their local search presence for pertinent products and services while boosting their search engine optimization.

When building a profile, it is advisable to ensure that the business name, address (or service area), and phone number (commonly referred to as NAP) are consistent with other online listings.

The process of claiming a GMB listing is extremely user-friendly. Either follow the instructions below or contact us and we’ll do it for you (for free), as one of the first two Google My Business Partners in Australia.

Google uses your business name, address (or service area) and phone number to verify you. So, if your NAP is showing differently somewhere online, they may not think it’s you and leave you out of relevant searches.

2. Regular posts and image updates.

Google My Business gives you a lot of opportunities to interact with customers (or people who could be). By regularly updating your profile with images and posts, it will give people more ways to find you and show them (and Google) your business is alive and thriving.
