We just concluded our FB Live Episode 22 with Chapter Lead for Google Business Group (GBG) George Town, Samantha Tang about why you should be using Google My Business listing if you’re not yet doing so.
She spoke about the importance of using Google My Business (GMB) as a means to increase business visibility.
Personally, we’ve been using GMB for a long time now.
Google My Business helps improve business visibility (if you want a quick way to get ranked by Google, try using GMB) and helps you connect easily with your prospects and customers. They can easily find your opening hours, specials, promotions and deals but more than that, they can also call you easily! People can leave reviews too.
Unlike a Facebook Page which is more for people who know and like you to follow your business activities, Google My Business is a way for prospects to learn more about you.
If you ask me, Google My Business facilitates the visibility process while Facebook Page helps you engage with people who already know, like and trust you (otherwise they wouldn’t have followed your page).
Samantha is the Chapter Lead for Google Business Group (GBG) George Town. She is diligent and passionate about connecting like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs to build relationships and learn from each other and industry experts and drive business success using Google Web Technologies.
GBG George Town is a community of business professionals sharing knowledge about Google web technologies for business success. It is run by business professionals, passionate about bringing the benefits of the web to their local business communities, on a volunteer, unpaid basis. They believe that collaborating and learning from each other helps everyone achieve more.
We’ve always advised clients to use Google My Business.
Google My Business is a quick way to let people who are searching for you find your key business details such as address and phone number. More than that, your own customers can also leave you reviews and post images associated with your business.
If you are aiming to optimize your business online, start with Google My Business. It’s quick and easy to start and helps your business show up when people are searching for your business. And it pulls up all the right information and people can even call you directly by clicking on the phone icon from Google My Business. If you’re not using this, you are definitely missing out on a huge piece of the digital opportunity to be seen!
