Today I’m going to show you guys how to create a google my business listing or google snack pack listing
Gonna start by going to google dot com
So you input your business name
Now when entering your street address, city, state, zip code and phone number
This has to be the exact information that’s on your actual website. It has to match exactly.
This is very important when setting up your google my business account.
We’re going to use a generic address.
For instance if your website address has 18800 Lina street and it’s spelled out you want to spell it out on your google my business listing. If it’s abbreviated you want to abbreviate it.
Same with your phone number, if your phone number has no parenthesis and hyphens you want have it like that with no parenthesis and hyphens.
If it has parenthesis and hyphens you want to include it when filling this out.
This is also important if your like a mobile business you want to select no. If you have a brick and mortar location you want to select yes.
So we have all of this filled out
Googles going to send you out a post card to verify that, that’s your actual location there’s going to be a code inside
When you get your post card comeback to your google my business and enter the code to verify.
Since we’re just going this for example purposes we’re going to skip that.
So from here you want to complete your profile by adding photos of your business of your location.
You can ad a virtual tour this supposedly helps increase your rankings when you do a 360 or virtual tour of your business but I haven’t tested it tried that out yet.
I’ll let you guys know
You want to enter your hours
You can add menus if you’re a restaurant
The type of amenities you offer
You want to add as many photos as possible customers like photos and google likes when you add a lot of photos
Picture of food and drinks if you’re a restaurant.
This is where you can add managing members to your business to go in and change things.
If you have multiple locations
You want to have a separate page on your website with the address to that location and again, the address should match everything that you enter on this form.
That’s pretty much it. It’s not really that hard to set up a google my business listing. The hard part is when your actually trying to rank in the three pack or snack pack. Which isn’t too hard but it’s more complicated than this.
I’ll do a video soon on how to increase your rankings in the google snack pack
