If you have been struggling to build a local presence on Google, you may be happy to learn that the Google My Business platform makes things a whole lot simpler.
This is Google’s latest tool to help local businesses connect with more consumers. It merges Google Maps, Search and Google+ into a single platform; which can help you easily manage your business information across all of them. Download our free guide available in the right sidebar.

In fact, you can update your business information, check to see what your customers are saying, engage with your Google+ audience, and much more. Google My Business will make managing your online presence much more convenient with dashboard features connected to AdWords, Analytics, Reviews, Google+ and more.

If you have been using Google Places or Google+ Local, then your account should have automatically merged into a Google My Business account. The first time you log in, you will be directed to the My Business account and prompted to update your information.

You’ll find the new interface a lot more intuitive and easy to use, and you will no longer have to switch between platforms.

If you haven’t used any of the older models, then go to the Google My Business page and click on the “Get on Google” button. Here, you will be prompted to build a profile page and to add your business name, address, phone number and other details such as business hours.
