Is Google My Business Worth My Time?

100% YES – try it today and see for yourself.

We are big fans of Google My Business (GMB) as it is a really powerful tool to improve local search engine optimization. It still surprises me the number of businesses not using it – and if they are, they are not using it correctly. Be honest, how are you using it?

Get your business on the local map today by setting up and reviewing your profile. Simply visit Google My Business today.

I have been working on a number of Google My Business Accounts this week and really helping clients to see the benefits that this platform has to offer. Once we can explain the benefits and show the advantages, we can often see the penny drop. If I told you that you could improve your website visibility at No cost and all that is required is a minimum of 10 minutes per week – would you do it? With a little time investment and regular updates the benefits speak for themselves:

Benefits of Google My Business:

  • It’s free to use – little time required to update it properly
  • Easy to use – no technical knowledge needed
  • Increases visibility of your website
  • Gets you noticed on the local map
  • Increases traffic & phone calls
  • Ability to share posts, giving clear direction for all the services you offer
  • Promote events and offers clearly on the front page of Google

If you are looking to get ahead with local marketing then it is worth spending time on Google My Business. It is also worth pointing out that the old premise of “little and often” is a mantra we try and pass on to clients as the results are stronger and longer lasting than a one-hit-wonder.
