1 . Make sure your Listing Profile is 100% complete – You’ll want to make sure everything is filled out from the Name of the business to Service locations, Office hours, and a description of the business – make sure you use keywords in your profile description.
2. Add Pictures, Logos, & Videos – these can be pictures of your business location, store photos inside and outside, current and complete projects, and your team or staff.
3. Get as many reviews as you can. Promote your business page so people know that it’s out there. Once you get a review, respond to both positive and negative reviews.
