Whether you personally use Google Maps, Waze, or Apple Maps, claiming your business on all apps can be crucial to the success of your business. People have options when it comes to their GPS, and you want to be prepared either way. Claiming your business on Apple Maps can drive local traffic to your door, as well as allow all traffic to find you! Ultimately, it is quick, easy, and free, and can help improve your business’s SEO. So, let’s get started!
Type https://register.apple.com/placesonmaps/ in your URL. You will be directed to a Business Registration page that will allow you to sign in. Once you sign in with your Apple ID, you will select Add on Places on Maps.
Type the name of your business or the address in the search bar, and select Claim. Apple will then provide you with details to review, or you will have to type in information regarding your business hours, your phone number, your email address, your address, and the categories that apply to your offering.
You will fill out personal information to verify your ownership of the business. This includes your name, your phone number, location, and business identification number.
You will need to show proof of ownership. Whether that be receiving a phone call with a code, or submitting legal documents such as a lease agreement, an electrical bill, or an insurance policy.
Once Apple approves your ownership, you will just want to double-check your business hours and update if you are currently accepting Apple Pay. You can also add your website along with your social media accounts.
Congrats! You have officially claimed your business on Apple Maps!
