What is a Google My Business Profile?
Google My Business is a tool that allows business owners to manage their online presence across Google Search and Maps. It enables you to control how your business looks on the web, connect with customers, and reach more people. You can share important information about your business such as contact details, opening hours, services offered, and reviews from customers.

Secondly, it provides a platform for showcasing products, services, and special offers. Thirdly, it allows for customer interaction through reviews and Q&A sections which can build trust and rapport. Lastly, the analytics provided can offer invaluable insights into customer behavior and preferences, aiding in strategic decision-making.
