We all want our businesses to be found online, sending a steady stream of customers to our doorsteps. But it can be overwhelming to consider the dozens of social media and review sites that offer business profiles. Where does one start? If your franchise is on Yelp, is that enough? Or should you maintain a profile on Google My Business, too?

When businesses claim their profiles, they can look forward to many advantages including building a community of brand-friendly followers; helpful platforms for responding to online reviews (both positive and negative); improved Search Engine Optimization (SEO); and access to online data about visitors such as insights about how they found your business.

It’s easy to get started! We’ll walk you through the claiming process step-by-step. Download Connectivity’s Guide to Claiming Your Business on Google My Business, Yelp and Facebook.
