Google My Business is a free listing for your small company to spread visibility through the internet, particularly from Google Search Engine. Once you search your business name on Google, the search result will provide numbers of information regarding the business you run. It will improve a brand awareness over the people.
My Business profile is much like yellow pages back in the 80s, it more powerful and can reach a vast audience for free. No matter what kind of business you currently operate, creating a profile on the internet is overwhelmingly recommended.
