HEY YOU — When was the last time you checked your Google My Business profile? Maybe today is the day!

Why Is This Important?

You may be wondering why this is important. Google My Business is the source of where Google pulls their local business information in search. Think of it as a mini-website. The Maps listings are part of the algorithm and the first page of results you visibly see.

So Why Does This Matter?

As a business owner, you are continuously looking for methods to increase your client base. One easy way to do this is by showing up in the Google listings when potential customers perform a local Google search.

Did you know that it’s possible to show up ahead of your competition with a Google Maps listing, even without a website?

Obviously, a website would truly assist, but the first thing your company should do on the internet is to claim your listing in Google My Business, which is free. Getting started takes a little bit of time and skill, and that is exactly where Guru Marketing can help.

Go Back & Check Your GMB

More than likely someone, or you, set this profile up. Go back and look. Do it right now. Is it robust with content, outdated content, or no content at all? With all the changes made to the hours and ways businesses function due to Covid-19, updating your GMB as a business owner has never been more important! Are you still open for walk-ins, or has your business transitioned to online-only? Did your hours change due to unavailable staff? Perhaps, you have completely relocated. You’ll want to update your Google My Business Profile to reflect all of those changes.
