Why Create A Google Plus Profile for Your Business?
When you are attempting to increase your business’ presence online, a Google Plus profile is a necessity. Ranking in Google search is an extremely valuable asset to any business and should be a top priority. Although Google Plus is not the most popular social media platform it is definitely one of the most powerful when it comes to ranking in search. When you compare the ability for social media posts to rank in search, you will see that Google Plus is the most powerful. Twitter is second most powerful. When your business has a Google Plus profile, your posts that contain keywords related to your business will rank in search and bring customers to your business. So if you are in charge of a business or in charge of web marketing for a business, you need to create a Google Plus business page. A Google Plus business page will bring more traffic to your business than any other social media platform.
When creating your business’ Google Profile it is important to not put the name of the company as the name that the google profile is under. You will make your business specific page later. You will want to use your own Google account to create the business page. If you do not have a Google account you will need to make one. Once you are logged in to your account, go to Google Plus. It is smart to fill out your profile information before creating the page if you have not already done so. Once you are logged into your Google Plus account you can now begin setting up your business’ page. To do this you will need to click on the drop down menu in the top left corner that says “home”. Then near the bottom above “settings” you will see a button for “Pages” This is where you will create your business page.
When you Create your page you need to make sure that all of the information is filled out. Make sure you leave a good description of what your business is all about. You should also add contact information so that potential customers can reach your company to do business. You also want to make sure that you add a link to your company’s website. If you do not have one, you should at least create an online blog with contact information and other information about your business. You should put a link to this blog once it is created.
A business page on Google Plus will bring customers from Google search to your business. I recommend that every business create a Google Plus page to increase their web presence.
