Identifying Your Target Market

Step-By-Step Setup Process

Creating a new profile on Google Business Profile is a straightforward process that can significantly enhance your online presence. 

  1. Sign In/Create a Google Account: Start by signing into your existing Google Account or creating a new one at google.com/business. This account will be used to manage your business profile.
  2. Find Your Business: Once logged in, search to see if your business already exists on Google. If it does, you can claim it; if not, you can create a new listing.
  3. Enter Your Business Information: Fill in your business name and select the appropriate category that best describes your services. Accurately categorizing your business is crucial for appearing in relevant searches.
  4. Add Location Details: If you have a physical location customers can visit, add your address. If you serve customers at their locations, specify your service area.
  5. Contact Information: Provide a phone number and website URL (if available). This information is critical for potential clients to reach you.
  6. Verification: Google will need to verify your business. This is usually done by mailing a verification code to your business address.
  7. Optimize Your Profile: After verification, you can further optimize your profile by adding a business description, hours of operation, photos, and more.
  8. Regular Updates and Review Management: Regularly update your profile with new information, posts, and photos. Also, actively manage and respond to customer reviews.
