Setting Up Google My Business
Setting up a Google My Business profile is a key part of optimizing your presence on Google. It’s free and easy to create, and it can help you to reach more customers online. To get started, go to business.google.com and click Start Now. Enter your business name and address, and click Continue. Next, Google will ask you to verify your business. This is normally done by a postcard sent in the mail. It takes 7-14 days to receive. Once you receive the postcard you can continue setting up Google My Business by entering the code.
After verification, Google will ask you to create a Google My Business profile. This is where you’ll enter your business information, such as your hours, website, and description. You’ll also be able to add photos and videos, which can help customers get a better idea of what your business is like. Finally, add your business to Google Maps. You can do this by searching for your business on Google Maps and clicking the Add button. Once you’ve added your business, be sure to check out the insi
ghts panel to see how people are finding and interacting with your business. You can also use the insights panel to improve your business’s online presence.
