Sign up and Claim your Business!!
When it comes to searching for local businesses, Google comes out on top. So, now you know how much a business profile will help you, how do you go about getting one? Here’s our whistle-stop tour of the process.
Note: if you haven’t already got a Google account for your business, you need to get one as your GMB Account will connect to it.
Let Me Google My Business That For You!
And if you don’t have your own Google My Business account yet, your profile may already be out there. If so, you need to claim it. If not, you need to create one.
There are a few options to claim or create a business profile; we will go through GMB itself. Click on Google My Business and select “Sign in”. Log on to your business account and enter the information required. Be aware your business name may already be there! Once you have given your business name, address, selected a category, and entered your contact details and website, you’ll need to verify your business.
You can do this by mail, email or phone (not all businesses are eligible for every option). You’ll then receive a code, which you enter using your account. Verification will pair you with your profile.
