What is Google My Business?
Simply put, Google My Business is like a virtual phonebook. It not only makes your business easier to find on Google but helps you reach potential customers that otherwise wouldn't be able to find you.
Google My Business is a great tool that allows your business listing to appear next to related local businesses whenever someone searches your business name or a related term ("dentist near me"). Your business information such as your phone number, website, address, review ratings, hours, and more will be available for your potential customers to see.
If your listing is not set up and promoted properly, it may hurt your local ranking and visibility. Don't take that chance. Get your Google My Business listing professionally set up and managed to receive the best possible results. When customers look for a business on Google, they expect to find accurate information and beautiful images. This service is just perfect for that!
