You just shifted your business to a new location, and your customers stopped visiting your shop or store. Wondering why is this the case? Well, you shifted to a new location and the chances of them being unaware are very high. If you shift your business without notifying your customers, you will most probably lose even the most loyal customers. The biggest mistakes that businesses make when they are moving to a new location is not updating their location on Google Maps.
As a business owner, you have to realize that you are dealing with modern customers, and they rely on Google Maps and navigation. When you move and forget about updating the location on Google Maps, you will love a lot of your loyal customers. While some businesses forget to update their location, there are some that fail to do it, and eventually, give up.
If you are struggling to change your business’ address on the Google Maps, you do not have to worry anymore. Here is a step-by-step guide that will help you easily update the address on Google Maps.
Step 1: Sign in to Google My Business
You have to start the process by signing in to your Google My Business account. Navigate to the website and enter your credentials to access your Google My Business dashboard.
Step 2: Click “Info”
When you sign in, you can easily locate the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the screen. When you click on them, you will find different options on the menu. To proceed with the editing, you need to select “info” from the menu.
Step 3: Click “Address Field”
In the “info” section, you will find the address field with a navigation icon beside it. You need to click on the Address Field, which will then take you to the window where you can make changes to your business’ address.
Step 4: Change the Address
Enter your address in the bar, and if the address is not available in the option, you will have to choose it through the location marker manually. In case you do not find the location in the suggestions, you will have to choose the “set market location” that appears on the map on the right side of the window. When you choose the option, it will lead to a new map which you can use to mark the new location. The new map appears with a red pin that you can drag and position at the exact location by zooming in for accurate marking.
In these four simple steps, you can change the address of your new business location. Do not miss out on your invaluable customers by not updating your location on Google Maps.
