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

When creating your profile, it’s best to match your business name, address (or service area) and phone number (known as NAP), to your other online listings. This helps Google identify your business, not only to know when to show your GMB, but your website and other listings too. 

Claiming your GMB is super easy. Either follow the instructions below or contact us and we’ll do it for you (for free), as one of the first two Google My Business Partners in Australia.

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.
