Does Your Business Need Google Business Profile?

Posted by Kathi Fuhrman

Google Business Profile, previously Google My Business, is a tool that allows you to change how your business appears when consumers search it on Google. Before we tackle the big question of whether your business should be using Google Business Profile (GBP), let’s discuss what GBP is and what features it provides to online users. .

To put it simply, Google Business Profile is your one-stop-shop and billboard for your business right on Google. It allows business owners to showcase products and services, respond to customer feedback and reviews, and GBP provides insights on keywords, reviews, and bookings.

The best part? There is no fee to set-up or maintain a Google Business Profile. Business owners can edit and modify their profile at any time. The customizable features allow businesses to showcase key products and services that will allow them to outshine others in the same industry. Creating a GBP not only highlights the best parts of a business, but it makes businesses more accessible and discoverable to potential customers. 

GBP lists everything from the physical address to the website, hours of operation, and more. The easier it is for potential customers to find the answer they need about your business, the more likely they are to purchase from you. 

Google Business Profile offers insights to better understand how customers are finding your business and the features in which you should continue to highlight to attract more sales. Keyword insights can help with search engine optimization, and understanding more of what your customers are looking for. 

So, should your business invest the time to set up a Google Business Profile? To keep things simple, Google Business Profile is an incredible tool that is available to most businesses, and we highly recommend setting one up as soon as possible.
