Retail entrepreneurs who regularly update their Google Maps profile can increase the number of potential customers who are targeting them online up to 25%.
This information was revealed by Oliver Lane, founder of Velmont Media, which has been supporting independent businesses to improve the listing of their stores in Google Maps.
Lane notes that Google Maps supports up to eight retailers per month. “We work with everyone from the youngest retailers that start a business to owners of established stores that do not have a computer” he says.
“Customers know the Internet and use Google Maps to find businesses nearby, so a page with details such as opening hours and photos of a business will make it more visible online and increase the number of customers”.
Google Maps, a huge opportunity for entrepreneurs
Google Maps allows you to find businesses, places and nearby sites of users of this application, so it represents an opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to increase the number of customers.
