Restaurant Marketing Tip #17
Create & Optimize A Google My Business Listing
I can not stress this enough how important having a Google My Business (GMB) listing is.
A GMB listing is a free business profile on Google which helps you reach and engage with visitors through Google Search, Google Images, and Google Maps.
Your optimized restaurant website/blog and business directories must all have the same information, without fail. Each site will work hand-in-hand with each other for better Local SEO results.
Similar to Yelp, visitors can and will post reviews in your Google My Business listing. We highly recommend responding to each and every review, no matter if it’s positive or negative. It is imperative to respond to every single negative review.
