Yes, creating your business profile on Google is free. Create your profile for free and you can manage your business from Google Search and Maps to reach more customers.
Registration only takes a few minutes and is worth it. That’s how.
1. Sign in to Google

4. Get verified
At the end of the registration process, you will be presented with several options to verify your business. This is a way to prevent spam and prevent someone from pretending to own your business. The authentication methods you can use depend on the business information you enter. They contain:
• Phone or SMS
• Video recording
• Live video call
• Immediate verification
Not all of these options are visible to you. Choose the one you think is more convenient. I used “Postcard” as authentication for my company. When they use this method, they send a postcard that arrives in less than a week. The card contains a unique code and a link. By going to the link and entering the code, you register your activity on Google. Simple as that!
Now that you have a Google Business Profile account, let’s see what to add to your listing. Adding photos on a regular basis has been shown to increase customer interaction. It’s also worth making sure your contact details and opening hours are up to date.
