What types of businesses can have a Google Business Profile?
According to Google, “If your business either has a physical location that customers can visit, or travels to customers where they are, you can create a Business Profile on Google.”
What if, (like Woodchuck Arts), you have a service based business that you operate out of your home?
It might not be ideal to have your actual home address with a picture of your home like I do, although it has worked great, and no one has shown up on my doorstep. Instead, you can designate your service areas on your Google Business Profile and keep your physical address off.
Another good option is to join a co-working space, and then you can use their business address. For example, I will be adding to my locations because I now belong to Cultivate, which has locations in and around Columbus, and part if the benefit of membership is that I can use their addresses for my Google Business Profile location, which will help my local search.
