Google My Business is making it easier than ever for local pool and spa companies to get the most out of their online listing.

Kim Spalding, a Product Management Director at Google, says that these advancements were made after hearing many small businesses say that they want to save time at work and have access to easy-to-use promotional tools. Not only can businesses answer a series of questions to have Google develop a personalized plan for your company, there are now local Grow with Google workshops being hosted across the country.
