List Your Business on Google Business:
First: Open Google Business in your system or mobile browser <u>(https://business.google.com/)</u> or download the Google Business app <u>(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.vega&hl=en_IN)</u> in your mobile and login through your Gmail id or your mobile number. If you don't have a Gmail account just create one Gmail account it is free. Once you log in through your mobile then it will ask for your business details, like Business name, Address, Logo, Store Location, Contact Number, timing of your shop, and much more just enter your details and save.
Then verify through your mobile number or you can choose physical address verification, for physical verification Google will send a code through a post that needs to be verified. Once you are verified then you post your business details like services, your offer, your products, and much more so keep updating on that. For Example: If you have a Grocery app and are listed on Google and get verified by anyone searching on the Google Grocery app near me then your business listing will show up for them with your details so they can contact you through phone, email, or other information you have provided over that. You can see in the below image various details and features that you can use in the Google Business listing.
Second: Social Media Account creation and listing:
Now open your browser and/or download all Social Media apps like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter and create your account on that.
Facebook: Create your Facebook page and enter your details. Once you create them on the Facebook page you will see one option called add products and services. Just enter your products if you are selling something or enter your service details if you have been providing any services.
Go to Facebook marketplace <u>(https://www.facebook.com/marketplace)</u> start listing your product on theirs and set your delivery location as per your convenience.
