For most marketers claiming clients businesses on Google, Bing, Yelp, etc. is a no-brainer. In fact, millions of people use these listings every day as a way to determine whether a business is open, get directions to the business, or see reviews to determine whether or no they will even do business with said company. Whether you are a physical business that people can go to or you go deliver services to clients, you should make sure you claim your business.
Not only does it allow you to make sure the information that people see is accurate, but it allows you to post relevant imagery (ie: logos, images of your work), respond to reviews both good and bad and promote events, specials, etc.
Lastly, it is an easy way for potential clients to reach you, as all of your information (phone number, website, address) are all right there.
Now some of you reading this may have already claimed your business and think you are all set. However, Google now has a bunch of extra features that allow you to not only understand how people are coming across your listing but let the same clients easily schedule appointments, message you and keep up to date on all the things going on with your company.
