Published on 2020-04-18

Are you wondering what a Google My Business profile is? And why your Garage, Auto Centre or Auto Parts Store should have one and add content to it regularly? Find out why Internet users and consumers think it’s so important and provides credibility for businesses.

Google My Business Is the World’s Largest Directory

To start, Google created Google My Business to make all businesses or organizations visible on the Web, regardless of whether they have a website or not. It’s the largest comprehensive directory in the world! Remember that Google’s search engine is the most used by Internet users, at 90%.

Your Google Profile Is Your Web Showcase

It really is a personalized information sheet visible on Google. The main feature of the Google My Business profile is that it can be customized by its administrator. Important information like your mission, business hours, location, a link to the website, are all customizable and displayable. Keep all this information up to date, it’s vital!

Go Even Further with Google My Business

Managers of Google My Business profiles can access many functions to make it active and strengthen the SEO of their business on Google.
Uploading photos of the business exterior and interior, employees, videos, product postings, news, events and offers are just some of the features to take advantage of. Promote yourself! Why not invest and order a virtual tour of your business?

Google Reviews Offer a Wealth of Information

Why not ask your customers to write a review on your profile and add photos taken by them? In addition, make sure to reply to all reviews, both positive or negative, to show they are important to you. Reviews and comments are a good source of information to assess whether customers appreciate your services.
