A GMB listing is like a storefront for your business. It’s the first place people visit when they’re looking to do business with you, and it needs to be well-designed to make that potential customer feel at home before even considering any other options. Google My Business helps you to reach out more effectively and increase your online presence. With their wide range of tools, Google will help get the word out about what you have for sale or offer in terms of services so that it is easier for those looking at search results to find what they are looking for among many other small businesses like yours. 

Interactive messaging and questions & answers allow you to get personalized information from your local store without even leaving the listing. Make sure your company information is accurate and up-to-date. Ensure that all of the location, contact info and hours open/closed are correct. This Rio SEO infographic shares best practices for optimizing your GMB listing.
