In spite of initiatives on the part of Google, only 37% of businesses have claimed their local business listing. That is a shockingly low percentage for how beneficial these listings are.
We have mentioned the importance of Google reviews when it comes to benefiting your local business but we have yet discuss map listings, which are just as important. According to Google, businesses with complete online listings are twice as likely to be considered as a reputable business. It is also proven that customers are 38% more likely to visit the business and 29% more likely to make a purchase from the business.
Businesses that are online grow 40% faster than those that aren’t, and with 4 out 5 people using search engines to find local information, such as directions or hours of operation, it’s important for businesses to be where potential customers are. If your business isn’t online, or your existing online listings are not fully optimized, you’re missing possible business opportunities. That is where we come in.
