Here at Guru Marketing, we see the significance of having a Google My Business profile on Google. Here are a couple of reasons why it is so important.

GMB is a Mini-Website for Your Business

Google My Business (GMB) is truly a mini-website for your business. It typically tells – whoever might’ve searched for you, the hours your business is open, the address of your business, what services you may provide, and your business’s phone number. It is also a great place for people to leave reviews. This helps your business seem professional when people are searching, showing them that they can trust you, that you are real and legit. It also gives them easy access to locate and contact you for information that is not on the google my business profile. It is also a great tool to attach your website to.

Google My Business is Where Google Pulls Information

Google My Business is the source from where Google pulls local business information, and the Maps section is specifically part of their (Google) algorithm. It is important for any business owner to claim their GMB profile that way they can add in the correct information and update it when needed. At Guru, we suggest going in every couple of months to ensure all information is correct and to add any new relevant photos or content. If that’s not something you are up to we can easily do it for you here at Guru.

Google My Business is Easy for Guru to Setup

Specifically, during a pandemic and the holidays being right around the corner, it is important that all the information on your GMB profile is correct and up to date. At Guru, we offer GMB services to maintain and update you for you. This is extremely important since you may have new policies due to COVID, or have new hours once the holidays hit. Guru is happy to help make these changes and keep things current for you. It’s important to have a GMB profile for each location your business has as well, as this can help reach people in each area. GMB can also be used as a social media tool, with photos, and product images. This can make it easy for your current customers, or clients to stay up to date and allow for easy access to products or resources.
