Google My Business is just one of the various free tools that the search engines gods (Google) provide free of charge. Others include Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics, Search Console, Google Trends, Keyword Planner. And I’m sure that’s not all!
I know, I know, you’re probably sat there thinking, “Saaake Lorna – I don’t have time to learn ANOTHER thing!”
But firstly, it’s 100% FREE! Secondly, it doesn’t take that much time to set up OR upkeep. And lastly, it’ll do nothing but amazing things for your business.
After doing a bit of research, I learnt that 56% of local retailers haven’t actually claimed their free listing. If this is you, then go and do that right now!
However, I wanted to cover this on the podcast because, of course there are a whole host of things, tactics, strategies etc. for getting your business to show up in position number one on Google. But GMB can literally help you get there for some searches!

- The 3 different types of listings
- Important information you can (and should) add to your listing
