Google My BusinessWhat You Need to Know About Google My Business

It can be quite a task attempting to keep up with all the incarnations Google goes through with their local products. Google Maps, Places, Google+ Local, and now, Google My Business. Before you go running away, throwing up both your hands, let me just tell you…It’s not bad at all.

Promoted by Google as a way for local merchants and service providers to create and manage listings all in one simple to use platform, they appear to have accomplished exactly that!

Essentially Google+ is now the platform, and all else revolves around this.

5 Ways Google My Business Will Work for Your Local Business

  1. GMB allows you to easily update your information from one place – Once you claim your listing on Google My Business, you’ll be able to update anything you wish regarding your business or online presence. You also have the ability to add pictures and even virtual tours if you want, thus making it simple for people to get a real idea about your place.
  2. Connect with your customers through Google+ – You can chat with fans and customers directly through your company Google+ page, sharing content, and news. You can also start and conduct a Hangout on Air.
  3. Manage customer reviews – This one is the most talked about feature: being able to see, respond and manage reviews on Google from one centralized location. Be sure you have a plan for handling your customer’s reviews, good or bad, and make sure anyone who will be posting to this page understands what you would like to accomplish.
  4. Run your business on the go – Using the Android and iOS apps, you can access any part of the Google My Business platform wherever you happen to be.
  5. Customer Insights – Another cool feature. GMB shows you a number of useful statistics, such as where your customers are driving from. This can be useful when planning new campaigns. Another plus is that you can easily integrate your Google Analytics account into GMB. This also goes for for Google Adwords.
