If you’re running a brick-and-mortar or service area business, you know the importance of local search. After all, consumers usually search the web for products or services near them when they’re close to making a purchase. A high-quality online business listing can help you reach customers in your area, but setting one up can be daunting. That’s why setting up a Google My Business Listing feature is vital to improve the visibility of your business, and we just have the right tool to help you.
Introducing the Website Builder Google My Business Listing feature
We know you’re busy running your business, so we’re pleased to announce the launch of Google My Business (GMB) Listing by the Website Builder — GoDaddy’s all-in-one website builder.
Currently, this is the only website builder tool that allows users to create and manage their GMB listings at no extra charge and without complicated add-ons.
The Website Builder’s Google My Business listing feature makes it easier for local consumers to find your business via Google Web Search and Google Maps, and even improves your website’s search engine optimization (SEO) ranking.
Who’s it for?
If you’re looking to attract local customers without spending a lot of time or expense, the Website Builder’s Google My Business feature is for you. It’s available now to all Website Builder customers in the Business Plus.
What problem does it solve?
While most entrepreneurs recognize the importance of local search, many may not be aware that they can set up a GMB listing for their business. Setting up the listing can be tricky and keeping the information accurate can be time-consuming. And of course, most business owners’ lives are complex enough without having to learn another online tool and remember yet another password.
How does the Website Builder’s Google My Business Listing feature help?
First, Website Builder will guide you through the setup process and create your GMB listing using the information from your website. In some markets, we’ll review your listing for errors or problems before submitting to Google so that it gets published faster.
Once your listing is published, you’ll be able to see how many potential customers you’re reaching, monitor your rating and even reply to reviews — all from your Website Builder dashboard.
