The platform Google My Business is of huge importance to business owners. Having an optimized profile for your business can mean a higher ranking position in the search engine results page which can of course equate to increased footfall/traffic and revenue as a result. The Google My Business (GMB) platform is easy to use and there is a related app which means that people can be updated of engagement whilst on the go. People can leave reviews about the business and of course these can be negative or positive. What’s key is that those reviews be they positive or negative are acknowledged and responded to. Google My Business also enables business owners to add images including 360 degree images and also videos. These can really showcase your business and really entice people to come and visit (if relevant). It’s also important to keep things like opening hours up to date so that people have the correct information as it’s extremely frustrating for customers (potential and existing) to receive erroneous information.
