By simply claiming your Google My Business (GMB), your business will appear in more local searches for relevant products and services, plus it will boost your search engine optimisation.

The top 3 essentials every Google My Business profile needs:
Google uses your business name, address (or service area) and phone number to verify you. So, if your NAP is showing differently somewhere online, they may not think it’s you and leave you out of relevant searches.
2. Regular posts and image updates.
Google My Business gives you a lot of opportunities to interact with customers (or people who could be). By regularly updating your profile with images and posts, it will give people more ways to find you and show them (and Google) your business is alive and thriving.
Sure, your Google My Business profile gives people a lot of information, but they’ll still want to see your website. The difference between them becoming a customer or not will be how easy it is for them to use your website.
Here are just some of the great ways you can use Google My Business to attract people to your business.
