Google+ Should your practice have a business page?
Posted on 12/14/2015 by Wendy Hensley, Marketing Manager
The short answer? Absolutely.
Google+ business pages are the most important Google+ feature. This is especially important for local businesses because it increases your local visibility for mobile searches and allows potential patients to call you, get directions to your location, and check your business website from your business listing. If you don't own your own business page, your business data on Google could be wrong or missing and therefore you could be missing out on many new patients.
In addition to helping with search engine ranking and customer acquisition, Google+ is great for interacting with your patients via the online reviews. Patients can leave reviews on your pages and you have an opportunity to respond directly to them. Reviews not only show other potential patients your willingness to interact and problem solve, they too increase overall search engine rankings. It's a win, win!
