Your clientele would want to know how they can reach you. So, why not make it easier for them? If you ever wondered how you can register the physical location and contact information of your business on Google, then you are in the right place. Google My Business is made specifically for businesses that want to register their location, website, and hours of operation. Registering is easy and free with just five steps.
Visit Google My Business
First, make sure you are an authorized representative of the practice. Open Google My Business page and click the button that says “Manage.” Then the page will ask you “What’s the name of your business?” Go ahead and type your business name, while making sure that your business is consistently represented by having a name that corresponds to what your clients recognize.
Location, Location, Location
Soon enough, Google My Business is going to ask you if you want to add a location that your clients can visit. Make sure that it is the exact location.
Google My Business may ask you if you perform services outside of your primary location. For example, if you are going to assist your clients by visiting senior centers, delivering a hearing device, or if you are going to provide one-on-one care at your patients’ home. If you click “yes”, then you are supposed to add the areas you serve.
Business Category & Contact Info
After that, it is going to ask you to choose the best category for your business. Choose the right category to enhance your SEO, such as “Audiologist.” “Hearing Health Practice” is not on the list, although “Hearing Aid Store” and “Hearing Aid Repair Service” is listed, if you provide these products or services.
Soon, the form will then ask you to supply your contact info, such as your number and website. Google will also offer you a free business URL based on your information.
Verify Your Business
Finally, you are supposed to “Finish and Verify” your business. Make sure you filled everything accurately. You will need to confirm that you are authorized to register your business before you can continue. Once your information is accurate and you have clicked the finish button, your information is submitted and a unique Google Business page will be created for your business.
Check Ground Mail
Next, expect a postcard Google sends in the mail. If you previously verified your listing, it can be re-verified via an immediate phone call from Google. When your business is verified, clients and prospective clients will have easy and direct access to your practice’s information.
