Create your own website for free with Google My Business

Inquirer Libre - - FEATURES -

GOOGLE launched a tool called “Google My Business ( GMB) Websites” to help small businesses in the Philippines create free, mobile- optimized websites in minutes. Some people may find that building a website is complex, expensive, and time- consuming. But now, by visiting google. com/ business/ how- itworks/ website/, users are equipped with simple, free, and fast way to build a website.

Business is all about connecting with customers— your people— wherever they are. They can find you on Google Search and Maps, but your website is where they learn the most. About 67 percent of the internet population in the Philippines visi t a business's website on a monthly average, according to the Global Web Index survey. But only 1 percent of small businesses in the Philippines actually have an online presence, and not all of them are websites. That means missing out on telling many potential customers about your business.

GMB allows businesses to create a page that contains all relevant information such as business description, location, con- tact information, and operation schedules. Once all these information are saved, the website becomes visible on Search and Maps. Aside from increasing online presence, GMB’s website builder makes it easy to:

Create a well- designed site that looks great and runs smoothly wherever and however people find it.

Stand out online by choosing a design theme, adding your photos, and describing what’s unique about your business.

Get a free domain from Google or buy your own with Google Domains right from Google My Business.

Connect with customers by telling them exactly what you want them to do next, like call your business, book an appointment, or sign up for your mailing list.

Manage everything in one place whether you’re on desktop, mobile, or the Google My Business app.

Earn new business from Ad-Words Express and your expanded presence online.

No matter what kind of business you own—from an eyeglass shop to a restaurant serving only soup—you’ll see that just having a website makes a huge difference and helps you attract new customers. People will find you for all kinds of reasons, such as getting your address or seeing photos of what your shop looks like, and you'll be able to grow your business.
