What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is an essential service all owners of physical stores (and even online stores too) need to invest in. Not only does GMB allow you to update your customers on your opening times, but it has incredible potential to put your store in front of those who matter.
88% of customers search for stores on Google to visit before doing so, and you need to make sure your store appears first. Your GMB listing helps you inform customers of what you do, when you’re open, and your contact details for them to ask queries directly. It also features key images of your store, services, and even menu items (vital if you own a restaurant!), as well as giving you the opportunity to answer FAQs and post customer reviews.
Our Google My Business Optimizer package ensures your business listing jumps off the page and entices every customer who is looking for your products or services.

How A Local Search Works
We’ve all done it – got out our cellphone and input a new search, perhaps looking for a new restaurant to visit or a shoe store to try on the latest sneakers. Potential customers do the exact same process! They start their search for products or services on Google, usually via their smartphone. What’s more, they will search using a category keyword (such as “Cocktail bar”) and a location (such as “Albuquerque”). With these searches, the Google Map will appear first, with the top three businesses appearing. If you aren’t in these top three, you are at a serious disadvantage. How will those customers find you?
Even if you do appear in the top three, you then have the task of converting those who see your listing into a customer who walks into your store. You do this by creating incredible content.
Your GMB Listing
Your listing is your virtual storefront. It needs to display all your relevant information quickly and efficiently, while also selling you and attracting attention. A standard listing with just basic information isn’t good enough. Not when you are competing with thousands of other businesses that offer the same products as you. You need the most engaging imagery on your listing and the most informative and interesting details about who you are. You need to answer questions potential customers might have, such as “Do you serve vegan food?”. Only by hitting these requirements will you ensure potential customers want to contact and visit you.
