According to a 2015 Google survey, 86% of Australian consumers found directions or contact details for a business with their phones in the past three months. Further studies have shown that 80% of consumers use a search engine to find local goods and services, but only 37% of businesses have claimed a local business listing on a search engine.
Are you one of the 73% without an online listing?
So how do you overcome this?
A free Google Business listing allows you to add important information about your business, including hours, contact information and directions, to an online listing that will show in both Google Search and Maps.
That makes it easier for potential customers to find out all about you whether they’re searching on laptops, desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices.
Customers who search for your business on a mobile can even call your business directly from the online listing – making it much easier for them to get in touch with you immediately – or share the address details via text or email.
And last, but not least, you can quickly and easily view and respond to the reviews customers leave about your business.
So what are you waiting for? Get started today!
