What is a Google Business Listing?

A Google Business Listing is a digital asset you create and manage through Google.  Your listing will appear on the the right hand column of desktop Google searches, and in the location based part of mobile searches.  A business listing typically shows a map, photos, hours of operation and other basic business information.  A Google Business Listing is required to appear in Google Maps.

It’s fairly straight forward to setup and manage, but can be confusing and time consuming if it’s your first attempt.  With LaunchPlot, we handle the setup for you.  We will handle the process of getting your business authenticated, and validated in Google Maps so you can appear in location based searches.  If you already have a listing, we will do a tune up and make sure you are using it the most efficiently.

Post launch, we will provide information on how to manage your listing going forward.  You’ll be able to manage and monitor your listing using a browser, or the Google Business mobile app.

It’s an important part of the puzzle, and we will take away all of the guesswork.
