How can I market my business more effectively online?

Get your business on Google's Map

All businesses struggle with how to get their message on the internet in an affordable and effective
way. Healthcare based businesses are no different. There’s no use putting up a website if no one ever
finds you! With our mission to help healthcare businesses succeed in mind, Health Local suggests you
take a moment to learn more about the free Google service, Google My Business. It enables businesses
like yours to become more visible on Google’s search engine and reduces the risk that your website
will remain unfound. Through this service, you can list all kinds of information about your business, 

including:
• Business Description
• Hours of Operations
• Photos and Videos
• Links to your website(s) and social media content
• Special events, etc.
• Profile photo

This makes it easier for your clients to find you on the internet. Once posted and approved by Google,
your business information becomes visible on Google search, Google Maps and Google+. This can have a
powerful effect on your business. Best of all, it’s free! So why not invest some time to help your business
grow?

When you set up your Google My Business account, you'll automatically create your own Google+ page,
which is a great way to build an audience through Google's own social media channel. Google+ pages
are commonly ranked highly in Google search results, meaning more online visibility and website traffic.
It’s not enough to just set up a Google My Business account, though it is time well spent, you will need
to actively add content to keep potential clients coming back. Watch for an upcoming article on how to add
great healthcare-based content and how to position yourself as an expert in your field.

In good health,
