Google My Business is a free Google service that allows you to list your business location on Google. You can add essential business details that can help your customers like – opening hours, contact details, website links, etc.
For creating a Google My Business account, your prerequisites are – a Google account, a Business profile, and a Google My Business account.
Here is a step-by-step guide to create a Google My Business account for your business.
1. Have a Google Account FirstMost people using the internet have a Google account. Having at least two Google accounts is common for business owners. But in case you don’t, you can create one easily. Note that you cannot use your personal Google account for your business solutions.
For creating a Google account, visit accounts.google.com/signin
And click on create an account. You will get two options between choosing a personal account and a Business account. Choose a Business account.
2. Have a Business ProfileA Business Profile is different from a Google My Business account, and a Business Profile doesn’t need a Google My Business account to exist. Still, without a Google My Business account, you don’t have any management control over the Business profile. You have to claim your Business profile with a Google My Business account if you want to manage it.
Here’s how to add your Business profile if it doesn’t already exist.
3. Create a Google My Business AccountTo create a Google My Business account, you will need the Google Account that you have for your business. After you have made sure you are logged into your Google business account, follow these steps
4. Send a Request to Claim Your Business Profile.To send a request, you will have to start again by searching for your business on Google maps or the Google search box.
On both links (Google search and maps), you see your business name; you will see an option ‘Own this business?’ selecting which will take you to another page from where you can choose to Manage now
After connecting your Business profile with Google accounts, the next steps require you to verify your business. After clicking Manage now, you will have to provide many details and information to prove that you own the business. This process varies depending upon the types of business. Sometimes it might take you only a few seconds if you have created the Business profile by yourself. But in case you are trying to claim a pre-existing Business profile, Google will send you verification codes. After entering and verifying the codes, you will have full ownership of your Business profile on Google.
This lets you manage the Business profile, along with the reviews, information, photos, and any other details. This makes local marketing a whole lot easier and effective.
