How to set up GOOGLE MY BUSINESS
MAKE IT EASY FOR POTENTIAL CLIENTS TO FIND YOU
You know how when you’re driving in an unfamiliar city and you want to find a restaurant? The quickest way is to hit the ‘find a restaurant near me button’ on Google maps. Immediately the closest restaurants come up – and with one click you can call them, get directions or check out their website and customer recommendations.
LIST YOUR MEDICAL BUSINESS
Well, if you have a medical business, you can use Google My Business in the same way so that potential clients will quickly find you on Google search and Google Maps. Below you can see what happens, for example when someone types in ‘hospital near me’:
Get started with a HEALTHCARE PROVIDER Business Profile
Healthcare providers like doctors, therapists, and other medical practitioners can use Business Profile to manage info for their practices and personalize their profile on Google Search and Maps. If you don’t already have a Google account, create one. Then click on https://www.google.com/business/ and follow the steps to begin your business listing.
It’s free, there are no limitations to listing your medical or healthcare business and it is really easy to set up. In fact, Google might already show your business on a suggested list. If it already exists, you can simply claim it and then follow the steps to begin your business listing
Once you’ve set up your listing, you can manage it from a Google My Business dashboard. The insight tool tells you have many phone calls or messages your listing has generated, whether clients found you on Google Maps or Google search and what keywords they searched for which led them to you.
When you enter your business address it automatically creates a map with a pin so that your new customer just clicks on directions and gets the quickest route to your door.
As a healthcare business owner, a Google My Business listing is an essential part of your online marketing strategy, so head straight over to your google account and get going!
