IHCC is proud to announce a new partnership with Google that will provide the entrepreneurs in our community the ability to instantly verify their business listing on Google My Business.
This collaboration not only gives members the opportunity to mobilize their business listing, but maintain a relationship with existing customers and attract new clients. Google My Business is a free tool that allows business owners to leverage the Google platform to list their business hours, promote special offers, share photos and posts, and respond to customer reviews all on Google Search and Maps.
Currently, Latinos own 12% of all businesses in the United States and are expected to grow more than 3x the national average by 2050. However, only 45% of Latino businesses have an online presence. Through this collaboration, we hope to increase this number and help our community adapt to digital marketing methods.
If you are a small business owner and would like more information about setting up your Google My Business listing, please contact Lizet Alba at (312) 425-9500.
