Setting up and monitoring your business Google Profile is really important. Offering up helpful information about your business online activity and another opportunity to engage with potential customers in a positive way.
There are two main parts,
• Google Business Listing
• Google Analytics Account
Your Google Business listing is associated with your business location and Google maps.
Your listing has to be verified confirming the physical address of your business, which is done with a verification pin code posted by Google or telephone to your business landline by a Google representative.
You can highlight products and services here, helping customers locate you through Google maps and organic search queries associated to location. Easy contact information like telephone, web address and even directions to your business is offered to the user.
Even if you don’t have a website, a Google Business Listing is essential for any business.
