Sign up for this one hour training webinar to learn how to make effective use of Google Business Profile (formerly known as Google My Business) within your small business.
Google Business Profile is an essential tool for any business that wants to get more visibility in local search. Google Business Profile listings appear prominently in local search results and on Google Maps. When someone searches for a specific type of business or service in a particular location, having an optimised Google Business Profile increases the chances of your business appearing in the top results. Optimising your Google Business Profile can help your business show up in the “Local Pack” or “3-Pack” of search results, which can be a game-changer for local businesses.
With the increasing use of mobile devices, Google Business Profile listings are often the first point of contact for users searching for local businesses on their phones. Having an optimised profile ensures you capture these potential customers. Many businesses, especially smaller ones, do not take full advantage of Google Business Profile. By optimising and actively managing your profile, you can gain a competitive edge in your local market.
In this webinar we’ll go through the basics of getting your organisation set up on Google Business Profile and how to use its key features to grow your business.
