If you’re utilizing an ecommerce platform to sell products or services online, then making sure that potential customers can find you online is key. But if you have a physical location, it’s important to let people in the area know where you are, especially if you are open for walk-in customers. The majority of your walk-in customers are going to find you online. But in order for them to know that you’re local, you’ll have to utilize a Google My Business optimization service.
