As a business owner, thinking of how to earn more customers for your business is always gonna be on the back of your mind. One of the first things you’ll want to do is to make sure that you get your business listed on all major websites like Yelp, Facebook, Google, etc. If you’ve spent any time wondering about this, you’d have probably also thought, “Wait a minute, what about Google Maps? How can I get people to find me there?“. If you ever did, then you’ve come to the right place. This step-by-step guide will tell you how you can add your location to Google Maps and help people find your physical store.
But first things first:
One of the most common misconceptions that people have is thinking that Google Maps, like OpenStreetMap or Apple Maps, has a separate platform through which they need to sign up and add their business location to. This is not required for getting your business on Google Maps. All you need to do is get yourself listed and verified on Google My Business, and you’ll start showing up on both Google searches and on Google Maps. So in case you already have your business listed on Google My Business and you were thinking that you weren’t showing up on Google Maps, worry not. You’re all set. (You can check how you’re listed on other major sites, however.) If you don’t have your business already listed there, then keep reading, because this step-by-step guide will help you add your business to Google Maps.
