Google My Business is a great way to help promote your trades business online. It's free and easy to use, and it can help you reach more customers online. In this post, we'll show you how to create a Google My Business listing for your business, and we'll also explain some of the benefits of using Google My Business.

If you're not already familiar with Google My Business, it's a free online tool from Google that allows businesses to create a listing for their business. The listing includes basic information about your business, such as your address, phone number, and website. You can also add photos and descriptions of your business, and you can specify what services you offer.

In order to set Google My Business up you need to register for an account . You can register for an account here: https://business.google.com/create


Once you've registered, Google will send a verification postcard to the address that you provided during registration. The postcard contains a PIN number which you'll need to complete the setup process. Once your account is set up, it's then time to create your listing.

Our top tips for using Google My Business :


Use high-quality images: Google allows you to add up to ten photos of your business. Make sure that they are all decent quality and show off your work at its best.

Include a description: This is an opportunity for you to tell people about your business, so make it count by including information such as what makes your trades business unique, or more favourable than another business. 

Include your opening hours: This is really important so that potential customers know when they can call you.

Ask your customers for reviews: Asking your customers to review your business on Google can be really beneficial, as it will help others to see what they can expect.
