Google My Business is a very valuable tool for local businesses. It’s kinda an online business card for all businesses with a physical location, as it’s the first impression for visitors from Google. With a little bit of care and work it can provide many new customers. Many local business owners or marketers don’t monitor the results of the Google My Business (accounts).
