What Is Google Maps Used For?
Google Maps helps people find local businesses near them. If you are a business wanting to get found locally, it has a free service as of 2022 and it takes minutes to set up. As soon as you set up your Google Maps listing, get your postcard in the mail, and verify the listing using the number on the postcard, your Google map will start showing up online for people looking for the services that you selected in the category section.
There are some things that are going to get your Google map showing up more quickly. That is by filling out the profile completely, adding photos in the proper categories for the team section, and the exterior section, and uploading a virtual tour video of your business. It is extremely helpful that your hours and location are correct and accurate.
Google Maps is actually the low-hanging fruit for generating new leads for a new business or an existing business. It’s quick to set up and it’s free, with just a couple of days of effort you could set yourself up for years worth of incoming phone calls and form submissions from people looking for services that you provide.
