Google My Business: One of the Best Google Marketing Tools
Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Everybody wants to rank #1 on Google. We all try to get to the first position, no matter the cost. The reality is that we always need to work smarter instead of harder. One of the best marketing tools Google offers and creates to highlight your business is called: Google My Business (Google Places). Have you claimed your FREE listing on Google? Do you know how to use it?

Make the most of your free Google listing.

As Google writes: “Show up when customers search for your business or businesses like yours on Google Search and Maps. Google My Business lets you post updates to showcase what’s new, respond to reviews to build loyalty and add photos to highlight what makes your business special”.

At Lifedge, we have helped many customers claim their listing on Google and start using this marketing tool to position their business. With a simple strategy, we updated all their main information (business name, phone number, fax number, email addresses, services, etc.), reply to reviews (that they didn’t know about their business), and to add pictures to create better engagement opportunities, so users can click on any of the call-to-action (CTA’s) Google offers (Call, Directions, Email and the new functionality of Messaging).

These are some of the functionalities you can start using by claiming your free listing with Google:

1- Manage your listing: Update all the necessary information about your business. Add custom hours of operation so your audience can have the most reliable information.

2- Share your updates: Share your latest news, specials, and offers, so they know what’s happening with your business.

3- Connect with your loyal customers: Engage online and build customer loyalty by starting conversations when they review your business.

4- Understand where they come from: Discover how people find your business. Also get a report on how many people are interacting with your listing.
