The tourists have arrived in Northern Michigan and they’re using Google on their phones to find a local business like yours! Time to update your Google Business Profile!
Your Google Business Profile is how you can earn a top spot in popular “near me” search results which are localized and personalized.
- Reminder: Google My Business was rebranded as Google Business Profile in November 2021.
Your original Google My Business listing still exists, but you can now manage your listing right from Google Search and Google Maps.
Update on Google Maps
One of the easiest ways to update your Google Business Profile is with your phone and Google Maps.
Just search for your business name to see the business you already claimed and verified.
In my graphic, this is my business on Google Maps which I found using my phone to search.
The blue arrow points to the “Edit profile” button. This how you:
- Edit business hours
- Add new posts
- Upload photos and videos
- Respond to reviews
Being at the top of local search results on Google almost guarantees lots of new customers, so keep updating your Google Business Profile!
