Having Map Pins in the Wrong Place – Mistake #6

GMB, Google Business Profile, Google My Business

Most businesses never double-check their map pins. That is why you discover that most of them are often in the wrong place on Google Maps. This makes it difficult for potential customers to find you.

If your map pin is in the wrong place, prospects are not going to find you. They will be directed to the wrong location and end up seeking business elsewhere. So, double-check your business pin and make sure it’s where it’s supposed to be.

Go to Google maps to determine whether or not your pin is in the right place. If it’s not, go ahead and correct it to make it easy for walk-in clients to visit your store.

Another great feature that businesses overlook is the ‘Located In’ feature.

The Located In feature helps prospects know where you are located and makes it easy for them to find you.

Find out whether your Google My Business account is showing the right ‘Located In’ to minimize frustrations and ensure you don’t lose clients to the competition. Simply run a Google search to determine if your GMB displays the accurate ‘Located In.’

If it doesn’t show the right location, tell your customers where they can find you. For example, give them the exact address and tell them you are located in a specific shopping mall or building. Doing this makes it easy for people to find you and minimizes the time it takes for them to discover your business.
