Setting up a Google my business listing may seem easy at first. The 2019 interface is very intuitive, so it seems. You go to Google my business, create an account, start filling up the form and, in less than 10 minutes, you’re done.
A few days later you verify your listing with the Google postcard verification code hopping customers will be flooding in…but the phone stays quiet.
- – Have you chosen the right category for your business?
- – Was there a Google listing for your business already in Google?
- – Did you fully optimise your listing so you get the best chances of being found in the Google snack pack and across Google maps results?
If you don’t know the answers to these questions I suggest you watch this Google my business tutorial I have put together where I cover every aspect of setting up a Google my business listing the right way and how to optimize it so you hit the ground running from the minute you verify your listing.
