With a Google My Business listing of your business, customers can easily find your business via Google Maps and Google Search. In addition, photos and offers can be uploaded to give customers an insight into the business.
Step 1: Set Up a Google Account
If you don’t have a Google Account yet, you need to create one, before you can set up your Google Listing.
Step 2: Go to google.com/business
This website is the website where you can add your Google Listing. After opening the website, click “Manage now”.
Step 3: Type in the name of your business
The autocomplete function shows companies with the same name if you type in your company name. This feature ensures that you do not create a listing for a business that has already been added.
Step 4: Type in the Business Category
Start typing the category of your company and choose the one that best suits the category from the list that appears.
Step 5: Choose if you want to add a location
Choose if you want to add a location that will be displayed on Google Maps and type in the address.
Step 6: Choose if you serve customers outside the added location
You can choose if you only serve your customers in the location you added or if you also come to customers that are outside the location. You can add the locations right after clicking “Next”.
Step 7: Add contact details
In this step you can add the telephone number customers can use to contact you and you can add a website URL.
Step 8: Verify your business
You can verify your Account per email, phone or postcard.
