How important is it to you that your business shows up on Google for relevant search queries?
Extremely important, right? That question is a no-brainer.
Google My Business (GMB) is one of the most powerful ways to improve a businesses LOCAL search engine optimisation and online visibility. If you’re a local business, claiming your GMB profile is one of the first steps you should take to increase your company’s online presence.
As long as your local business meets Google’s guidelines, your GMB profile can help give your company FREE exposure on Google’s search engine. Not only can potential customers quickly see your business’ name, address and phone number, but they can also see photos of your business, read online reviews, find a description about your company, complete a transaction (like book an appointment) and see other information that grabs a searcher’s attention — all without them even visiting your website. That’s pretty powerful stuff!
Not only is your GMB Profile easily visible to potential customers when they search on Google, but GMB is also a key Google local ranking factor. In fact, GMB “signals” are the most important ranking factor for local pack rankings.

We are a small team of hairdressers in a busy salon. It was a weight off our shoulders when Paula took over our online marketing. She grew our Google reviews which helped our business standout. We have found Paula very helpful and professional and would highly recommend her services to others.
