Google My Business and Google Ads
If you are not on the internet today … you do not exist. And if you don’t go on Google, too. Having a good presence and the internet is essential and for this we bring two essential tools .
The first is Google Business, which is an app that will allow us to fill in our business information such as name, telephone number, address and hours. In this way, if someone searches for us online, they will be able to obtain all our information at a glance.
Secondly, if we want to have even more presence on the internet, we will have to use Google Ads . It is not free but it is a good way to attract customers. In my personal case, as I use it, when someone looks for lawyers in Zaragoza, I will have a better chance of coming out in the top positions compared to the competition.
