They can be used on your marketing material such as business cards, brochures and also on your social media accounts, and anywhere you think it’s worth mentioning your GMB profile.

Additionally, it makes it a lot easier to ask customers to give you reviews meaning you may even be able to improve you online visibility too.

  1. Thanks for the tips. If you use a blue screen instead of a green screen you can still key it out but the color reflections on your skin will match the background like they should naturally and you won’t have that green skin tint anymore.

  2. Hey,
    One of my clients has a School of 18 branches. I have claimed GMB listing but only 2 of them are approved. I did the same for all of those but not worked.
    What can I do now? Love from Bangladesh.

  3. Is there anything wrong with using a popular search term for a short-name. I did this and it instantly ranked me for Local-Carpet-Cleaner. I will exploit the system every time an opportunity presents itself. Short-name already taken by someone else? Try making it more unique by localizing it with a city name. Local-Carpet-Cleaner-Happy-Valley. FYI – The Google search engine ignores the '-' hyphen symbol and treats it as a space.
