Why is Google My Business
important for you as a Pharmacy Business?
Google My Business is an online tool that allows you to control your presence across Google Search and Maps. By verifying and editing the information about your pharmacy, and applying the various tools within the application itself, you can help customers/patients find and connect with you more easily, interact with them online and tell them what you're able to offer.
Manage your Info
and promote your Pharmacy Services
Manage what Google users see about your pharmacy online, such as business hours, contact information, your website and the products and services that you offer. Create posts and citations to improve your overall ranking and local SEO. By verifying your business information on Google, you're optimising your reputation as company which customers love to see.
Interact with your
patients and customers
Respond to customer reviews and post photos about your pharmacy business to show people what services you can offer them. It's all about building trust in the community and Google My Business is perfect for it.
Understand more about
how your customers find you online
Use the insights tool to help you understand how customers are finding you through search and maps, how many times they call the number displayed online and what they're viewing about your pharmacy. Understanding these insights could help you create paid Google Ad's to drive even more business to your pharmacy.
