2. How will rankingCoach coach manage my Google My Business?
By connecting and syncing your Google My Business account with rankingCoach you will have the option to manage your business profile from one dashboard.
Every time you make changes to your account, such as changing working hours, for example, you will be asked to sync the account.
Unless the account is synced, new data will not be sent from rankingCoach to Google My Business, or any other connected directories. rankingCoach will never do the sync on its own, and you can always check the last sync date in your account under the “Local marketing” and “Preview” tab.
Here, you can find out the last sync date for your Google My Business as well as for local directories and Facebook.
Connected and synced Google My Business with rankingCoach, helps you keep track of your activity and how your customers see your business profile. Always make sure your address, phone number and email are up to date so customers can find you easily.
