Imagine that your friend has just had a dinner at a local restaurant and he simply loved the food and the ambience of that place. He has now recommended you that place and tonight you plan to go there. Your friend just told you the name of the place and nothing else.
So, what would be the next step you would take? But obvious you Google it! You immediately known the exact address on the map, working hours and phone number. You would then simply call that place through the phone number provided and book a table for dinner. Done right?
Well, you did not visit the website, their Facebook page, Google reviews or any other thing that you would have normally done. You simply visited the ‘my business’ page, booked an appointment and got done with it.
This is the exact behaviour shown by millions of users everyday. They simply visit the Google My Business page and get done with their activity, without much research on any other website or social media pages.
While Google started the ‘my business’ page or Google ‘Places’ as it was earlier called, quite some time ago, the benefits of this tool have started showing its importance since the recent past. More so, with the demise of G+, Google My Business as suddenly become a must have I any local marketers ammunition.
So what exactly is the importance of having a Google My Business page?
