Have you utilized Google My Business to attract more locals to maximize your revenue and expand your online presence? If the answer is “Yes", you are all set; but if the answer is “No,” you are missing out!
If your restaurant relies on local consumer traffic, it’s important to make your business visible in the search results because millions of people look online for a restaurant in their own vicinity. One of the best ways for you to connect with local customers is to get listed on online directories such as Google My Business.
What is Google My Business? Google My Business is a tool for businesses to manage their online presence on Google Search and Google Maps. By verifying and updating your business information, you can both help customers find you and tell them the story of your business.
Here are some benefits of using Google My Business:
1) Show up on Google Maps Searches
By having a Google My Business listing, your store location will start to pop up for local searches which allows users to instantly see how close you are to customer's location, increasing the likelihood that they’ll pay you a visit.
2) Better Search Visibility
A Google My Business listing will help your website land on a high-visibility panel near the top of the Google search results page and get more clicks to your website.
3) Earn Trust from Customers
Customers are confident to purchase from businesses they can trust. Businesses that show up on Google are 2.7 times more likely to be considered reputable by consumers because Google creates a trustworthy environment that users can rely on.
4) Star Ratings Boost Your Appeal
With a Google My Business listing, customers will be able to review your business and leave feedback for others to see. In doing this, not only will you get honest evaluations about what you’re doing right and what you could be doing better, but you’ll also get that star rating system next to your business on Google.
5) Stand Out from Competitors
Though a small snippet of content, your Google business description gives you an opportunity to stand out from your competitors and increase chances that they will visit your restaurant over theirs.
The benefits Google My Business affords local businesses are only growing. Don't wait and pass up these benefits.
