We’re living in an era where it’s difficult to walk down the street of any town or city without seeing someone using their phone in some way whether it’s to communicate with others or to find somewhere or for social media networking and so on. Keeping your business details updated on Google has therefore never been so important in this tech-savvy and connected world. Google has had this facility available for many years to business owners but it’s been in different guises in the past such as “Google+ Local” but today it’s solidly referred to as “Google My Business” on the business owner’s side.

When a potential customer searches for a Business, it’s difficult to know what exactly they wish to see but it’s a good guess to make that they would like to know your operating hours, maybe a description of your business offering, some photographs (or videos which Google is allowing on listings just recently!) and even some reviews where relevant. Get into the habit of updating your profile maybe with new staff photographs, new product photographs and so on.

Reviews on Google are hugely important for the likes of hotels and cafes so their importance (and replying to them) cannot be overlooked by business owners. In today’s vocal world, people like to leave reviews whether negative or positive.
