As we gear up for the holidays we want to highlight the importance of updating your special holiday dates on Google My Business and Yelp. Whether you have special hours or are closing on specific dates, it is so important to let your customers or clients know in advance what your hours will be. There is nothing worse than getting your hopes up to go into your favorite business only to find out it’s closed when you arrive.

Holiday Hours Example

About Google My Business

Turn people who find you on Google Search and Maps into new customers with a free Business Profile for your storefront or service area. With Google My Business, you can personalize your profile with photos, offers, posts, and more. If you don’t already have a Business Profile set up, the Raleighwood team can assist with setting one up for your business as well as maintain it with weekly or monthly updates to gain traction to your website.

About Yelp

Yelp is a review site where users share opinions and ratings of local businesses across the U.S. Businesses manage their own profiles on Yelp; this includes adding business information, answering comments, and advertising. Check out these five free things you can do on your Yelp page here.
