A Google Business Profile is a tool that helps businesses and organisations manage their online presence across Google. It allows businesses and points of interest to be more visible on Google's search engine and get found faster on local searches.

Once a business has set up and verified its Google Business Profile, it becomes visible on Google Search and Google Maps. In effect, once you have a GBP listing, your company details will appear on Google as demonstrated below: 

Whether you have a store front or travel to customers on-site, building your Google Business Profile is one of the most critical aspects of building a professional presence online. 

Benefits of having a Google Business Profile

1. Credibility

Consumers are twice as likely to consider verified businesses on Google Business Profiles “reputable” and trustworthy.

2. Traffic

Google Maps provides instant directions to your business from wherever your customers are located.

3. Visibility

After we update your GBP, Google will know when your store is open and where it is located. When people search Google for specific words that could identify your business, Google shows them open businesses near their location.
