Why & How to Claim Your Google My Business Profile
Today’s guest is Sommer Poquette, Founder and CEO of Keep It Real Social. Sommer is an expert in Google Business, and I wanted to have her on today to talk about Google My Business and the Google My Business listing, how to get it if you haven’t done it already, what its value is and why I think it’s a good idea for you to claim your business listing on Google.
So, are Google reviews the be all end all? No. Might they be a useful differentiator in your business? Might it be worth an hour to claim your listing? Confirm your address and phone number and put up a photo of your storefront? Might be. Plus, because this is part of Google, it’s part of your overall SEO. So when you claim your business’s listing on Google, it enhances the SEO of your website.
Sommer’s vision for Keep It Real Social:
“For me the biggest thing is, I want to continue to help small businesses actually make a dent online. I know it’s really competitive out there, it’s hard to be found… And so I would like to create more potential for those small businesses out there using online search, and to be found.”
