Google My Business (GMB) is no longer optional!
it’s an essential part of any business’s online presence and often the first place customers look for up-to-date information about your company.
In the age of Covid-19, this is more true than ever.
If your customers want to find your new opening hours or want to call you to inquire about your health and safety protocols, you can bet they probably aren’t going to crack open the Yellow Pages.
Instead, they’re going to Google your business’s name and check the right-hand panel for the information they need.
Creating, authenticating, and correctly optimising your Google My Business account is a priceless opportunity, which is why you should make use of it to the maximum.
GMB is an excellent way to build trust with your customers and assuage concerns, so don’t blow the opportunity.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s more crucial than ever that you utilize and optimize GMB to display accurate, updated information about your business.
Think of your GMB panel as the first point of contact between you and your customer.
If your business hours or description is out of date, you can lose a customer’s trust and miss out on the lifetime value of the relationship.
