Get Listed on Google Places

Why isn’t your med spa listed on Google My Business?

We’ve all been there; your friend recommends a great place and, when you Google it, the location doesn’t appear on the first page.

Instead, you have to click on their website, scroll through the entire page, find the location tab, then copy and paste the address to maps.


It’s frustrating.

You spent all that time and effort for customers to recommend you, so why make it so difficult for them to find you?

Now imagine when someone Googles your business, your location, address, phone number, hours, services, and reviews automatically populates on the first page of Google. And the best part, you can do all of this for free.

Introducing Google My Business (aka Google Places): a free service to add your business to Google Maps making it remarkably convenient for customers to find you. It also adds a nice half-page box with all of your info to the right-hand side of the search results.

Protip: if you’re already listed with Google My Business and you’re still not showing up on the map for relevant keywords, try these two optimization hacks:

  • Make sure you have your full address in your profile and make sure it’s public!
  • Encourage customers to leave reviews. Google likes to show visitors what they think they want to see. If you have plenty of reviews, you will seem more relevant.
