Why should your business post regularly on Google My Business?
Google My Business (GMB) allows businesses to create a curated profile with essential business features. From the GMB profile, businesses can share updates on what’s new, respond to customer reviews, add photos and videos to build awareness.
Google My Business page (GMB) posting is free SEO and visibility. The free service allows businesses to post content that helps their local SEO efforts, including offers and discounts. It also allows customers to leave reviews and ratings to give firsthand accounts of working with you. However, posts must be updated regularly to benefit the most from the Google algorithm.
Sounds like another social media platform, right? So why should you leverage Google My Business page posts when you already nailed Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, etc.? Here’s why;
People will google it and find you. Your GMB page will appear for local searches on Google Search and Google Maps, and potential customers will get a chance to find more information and locate your store. Having the largest number of search queries, customers are more likely to pick the option that makes their purchase decision easier. New posts to your GMB listing with targeted keyword selection enhances visibility and build your location authority. A higher authority gets you in the good graces of Google and gives you a higher ranking on searches hence more traffic. GMB posts strengthen local SEO and have you rank higher for local keywords.
