An optimized and well maintained Google My Business (GMB) listing with a Google Business Profile (GBP) gets 5X more than those that aren’t claimed.
Google Business Profile (GBP) (Formerly called Google My Business or GMB). On December 9th, 2021 Google announced that Google My Business (GMB), is changing its name to Google Business Profile (GBP). Google Business Profile is a FREE powerful tool for businesses and organizations to manage their brand’s online presence throughout the Google Ecosystem, including Search and Maps which helps customers find your business, see the business attributes as well as what type of products and services you have to offer. You can link accounts and invite others to manage them.
Customers search for a business by:
- Top rated
- Name of Product or services
- Business Attributes
Optimizing your Google listing with all fields in the Google Business Profile dashboard will increase your chances of appearing in someone’s search query. Match those keyword search terms and you will more than likely appear!
19% of your Google ranking is determined by Google Business Profile (GBP)
A buyer is 38% more likely to visit your site and the probability of them making a “buying decision” increases by more than 29% when your listing information appears and is well maintained. The idea is to establish some “trust” with existing and potential customers and remove inconsistencies or doubts of why they should choose your business.
64% of consumers use Google Business Profiles to find business addresses.
Every licensed professional and practicing business owner such as a CPA, Doctor Attorney, Financial Advisor, or Real Estate Agent should have a GBP in their registered business name and also a GMB in their professional name as well. For example, if the business is called “ABC Lawyers LLC” your GMB should read “ABC Lawyers LLC”.
You can always change the address if you move and have ownership of the GMB now known as a GBP. If you have other licensed professionals such as medical practitioners add GMB’s for them similar to these: “John Doe, MD, DO, NP” or “ABC health Care- John Doe, MD, DO, NP”. This will increase your business’s odds of being chosen by new customers.
Think about it, what is the first thing people do when they want to learn more or buy something? They Google it!
If you have ever claimed a GMB then you are aware of the nuances that follow. You have to wait up to two weeks to receive a postcard in the mail with a code to enter to verify it’s you. Unfortunately, sometimes they don’t even show up or someone thinks it’s junk mail and throws it out. Sounds familiar?
When you receive it then you will have to login into your GMB profile and enter the code. If you want the best results the next part is where it takes some expertise and that’s to completely optimize the profile. Without the proper insights and knowledge, this is where most business owners fail to do it properly and that has a direct impact on your bottom line.
