Where is the first place you go when you need to know anything? Let me guess… Google! Potential clients are no different. When they want to find a healthcare practitioner they are going to go to Google.
You may have noticed that when you are searching for a local business the results on Google Maps are usually listed first. You want to make sure that your business is on Google Maps so that you’re there when they are looking for you.
Bonus: It’s free!
How To List Your Clinic In Google Places
Step 2) Login to Google Places
Step 3) Enter your country and phone number
At this point Google will use your phone number to see if Google Maps already has information about your business. If they do, you can then edit existing information and add new details if you wish.
Step 4) Enter your clinic information
On this page you are asked to fill in information such as your practice name, location, email address, website, description, office hours, and photos. For clinics that book appointments online, you’ll want to mention that in your description to encourage the person searching to make an appointment with you!
Step 5) Verify your listing
Google will then send a postcard to the mailing address you’ve provided to verify that the information you’ve entered is correct. This process can take 2-3 weeks.
