Google My Business is a free business listing service offered by Google.
If you own a business whether small or large you can list it on Google Business free of charge. It will show up on Google Maps and search engine results.
I have recently added my website creation services to Google My Business and it is well worth it. You can find my Just Web Services business profile on Google here.
Get Listed on Google My Business
To register your business on Google you will need to verify your business address. Google send out a postcard with a verification code to your business address.
You will need to enter this code to update your listing. The process is simple and easy to follow.
What I like about Google My Business is that you can:
- Create posts and updates about your business
- Add photos
- Collect customer reviews and reply to them
- Add products and services
- View insights to how many visitors have viewed your business
- Use the app to quickly respond to customer messages
Here is an example of my web hosting business listing.

So, if you are looking for a really effective way of promoting your small business free of charge then I fully recommend listing it on Google My Business.
