What's Google My Business?
Google My Business is a free Google account for your business. Enter your business information into Google My Business and you can then manage and market your business across Google Search, Google Maps, Google Plus, YouTube and more all from one place.
Here’s two short videos on how Google My Business helps your business:
As the above videos show, with Google My Business (GMB), you can:
- make it easy for people to find you on Google Search, Google Maps and Google Plus
- present information about your business (business hours, phone, address, why do business with you, reviews, etc.) that people commonly look for
- connect with your customers. Post the latest about your business (i.e. your specials, events, news, etc.) on your free Google Plus Business Page and
- form relationships with your customers. They can follow, like, review and share your Google Plus business page and you can respond to them, too.
Plus, with GMB, you can also, for free:
- do video calls with your customers (i.e. Google Hangouts)
- see how many people visited your Google Plus Business Page, YouTube video channel and website
- setup your own YouTube Channel to host your marketing videos and
- setup advertising campaigns on Google Adwords.
How to Setup Your Google My Business Account
Just go to Google My Business (opens in a new window). If you already have a Google account or email address, click on the sign in button; otherwise, click on Get on Google and follow the prompts.
Here’s a link to a flowchart that walks you through the steps to properly setup your GMB Account, optimize your Google Plus Page and get engagement, reviews and citations:
