Google has good news for professionals. Google typically required business listings to have a physical address. Individuals working from a home office or servicing client’s at their location can now claim their listing. This is great news for non-profits, service groups, real estate agents, consultants, online marketers, online sales and individuals whom provide their services from a home office or at a clients home or location.
It is now possible for professionals and service providers to claim their Google My Business and take advantage of all the possible marketing options available.
