Google My Business

Sign up for Google My Business

Show up with your Business Profile on Google when people look for you on Search & Maps. Attract new customers with your free Business Profile.

Note: There might be a listing for an old business at the same location where you’re registering a new business. Do not attempt to claim it. Instead, suggest an edit to have it marked as closed. Then, proceed with creating a new Google My Business listing for your business.

  1. On your computer, sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Sign in to your Google Account, or create one. Then, click Next.
    • Sign up with your business email domain (e.g. mydomain.com) since this account will be for your company. Enter the name of your business. You can also select your business from the suggestions that appear as you type (if applicable).
  3. Enter your business’ address. You may also be asked to position a marker on the location of your company branch on a map. If your business doesn’t have a physical location but works in a service area, you can list the area instead. Then, click Next.
  4. Choose if you want your business location to appear on Google Maps.
    • If you serve customers at your business address:
      1. Enter your business address.
      2. Click Next.
        Tip: If you also serve customers outside your business address, you’ll have the option to list your service areas as well.
    • If you don’t serve customers at your business address:
      1. Enter your business address.
      2. At the bottom, click I deliver goods and services to my customers and then Next.
      3. List your service areas, then click Next.
  5. Search for and select a business category. You can also choose a more specific category as appropriate. Then, click Next.
  6. Enter a phone number or website URL for your chain, and click Finish.
    Tip: You’ll also have the option to create a free website based on your information. You can select to not proceed with that at this time.
  7. Select a verification option.
    • To verify later, click Verify later and then Later. If you’re not authorized to manage the Business Profile for the chain, find the person in your organization who’s authorized and continue the process.
  8. Add Creating Excellence as a User to Your GMB (Google My Business). Invite crystal@creatingexcellence.ca as a MANAGER to your listing.

  9. Confirm with Creating Excellence that you have completed this step with an email.
