Google My Business 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.

Ultimately, whether you have a store front or you travel to customers on site, building your Google My Business profile is one of the most important aspects of building a professional presence online.
Benefits of using Google My Business:
Consumers are twice as likely to consider verified businesses on Google My Business “reputable” and trustworthy
Google Maps provides instant directions to your business from wherever your customers are located
After we update your GMB page, 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
