Google is turning off all websites made with Google Business Profiles. What Should You Do?

If your business has a website that is created by Google using your Google Business Profile, you need to be aware that as of March 2024, your website will shut down. This shut down is affecting many businesses, maybe your own business, and I want you to be prepared for this shut down.

If your business has a website powered by this free Google service, you need to quickly create a game plan on how to move forward that your business is not without a website. 

What options are there out there? Here are a handful:

Have a professional agency build you a new website

Maybe now is the time for you to reach out to a website design agency or individual to build you out a website that is designed to help you get found online and make a great first impression to your website visitors.

This is a GREAT solution if your business if you have the financial capital, but if you don’t have $4,000-8,000 to invest in a strategic build, this isn’t a great option.

If you do have the financial capital, feel free to contact my agency, Marc Hyde Creative.

Sign up for a DIY website platform like WIX or Squarespace

You can always go the DIY route, but then have to spend a great deal of time learning the ins and outs of the software, create copy for every page, and hope that the website looks professional in the end. This is a great cost effective option if you have the time, knowledge, and drive to build a website, but you now have to spend weeks to get something live and online.

Do nothing

This is what most business will do – do nothing. If you do nothing, though, you are risking looking like you are out of business or don’t care about your business. 

If you were originally planning on doing nothing because you don’t have time to build your own website or pay an agency to build your website, I want to let you know that there is another option!
