Why You Need A Google My Business Profile?
If you have a local business that serves a specific geographic area, you could be missing out on potentially the greatest source of business that has ever been, by not having a Google My Business profile!
Google is where your customers go to find what they are looking for. It's where they head to find a local business, see what the business does, find out when they are open, check out their reviews and to see how to get in touch with them.
If your business is not visible on Google, you are missing out!
1 in 3 Google searches are for local businesses like "Plumber in Barnsley", "Pizza in Wakefield", "Nail Bar in Castleford" or "Italian Restaurant near me", "Car Showroom in Huddersfield", "Bars in Sheffield", "Roofer in Leeds", I hope you get the drift.
If a local competitor is higher than you on Google, they literally are taking customers that could be yours.
Did you know that 96% of all searchers will never look past Google's first page.

Google My Business Highlights
If the sheer volume of people using Google to find companies and products isn’t enough to convince you that you need to use Google My Business, then check out some of the benefits the worlds No.1 Search Engine can bring to your business door.
Your Business Will Be Easier To Find
A Google profile doesn't just tell customers that your business is somewhere nearby. It gives them the exact location along with a map (with directions if they wish) making it much easier for them to find you. In order for a business to make money, customers need to find you first.
Get Better Business Visibility In Google Search
If you’ve searched on Google, you will have seen the three local businesses (and more hidden below these) that appear below the paid adverts and above the organic search results. This is known as the Google 3-Pack and it is the golden location for a business to be featured.
Put All Of Your Information At User's Fingertips
When customers see a business listed within the Google 3-Pack, they’ll see more than just a name. They can see business hours, directions, photos, contact information and reviews making being in the 3-Pack the best place to be.
Get Fresh With Customers
Get an even greater edge by posting offers, promotions, new products, events or facts about your business to customers searching on Google. This is an amazing opportunity to reach your local community in a fresh new way and tell them about your business.
Gain Customer Insights
Learn about your customers through the Insights tab. Here you can check your visibility, engagement and audience and get a breakdown of followers including ages, genders and countries making it easier to review and tweak what actually works for you.
Manage & Develop Reviews
56% of consumers say that they first go to the search engines to check out reviews before making a purchase and 74% of people say that a positive review increases their trust in a local business. Use your Google profile to showcase your reviews.
Track Website Traffic & Audience
The Google analytic tool will give you even more in-depth information and break it down so you can really fine tune your posts and content to the audiences that are following you.

Getting To The Top In Google Is Harder Than It Looks
Then again, when is anything that is truly valuable easily achieved!
In order to rank your business on Google, and aim for one of the coveted top 3 local listings (The Google 3-Pack), you really need the support of a professional, a specialist who has taken the time to learn about Google My Business and one who has invested in software to get the most from the platform. As Google constantly revises the algorithm that decides on the order of results in the search engine and changes the criteria more frequently than a train timetable, you have to view getting to the top of Google as a ongoing process of refinement, rather than a one off shot on goal.
Your Google profile should always be a work in progress, a continuous cycle of alterations, tweaks and new strategies to counteract the changes that Google makes to the algorithm, and prevent malicious content or user generated changes that can affect your brands reputation and reach.
I can help give your business the boost in needs in order to reach the top and stay there.
