Local SEO plays a vital role for cannabis businesses, regardless of their scale. However, it holds special significance for dispensaries, where the ability of customers to locate your physical location can directly impact sales. Setting up a comprehensive Google My Business profile is the first step. Ensure it includes essential details such as your address, contact number, images, provided services, operating hours, and website link.


Not only is a well-optimized Google My Business profile paramount to your growing marijuana business for locals, but also potential tourists and out-of-town customers looking for your products. But it doesn’t stop there. Actively engage with your audience and gather positive reviews, not just on Google but also on platforms like Facebook, Yelp, and Weedmaps, if they are relevant to your location. A solid presence on local directories and geographically based platforms should be an integral part of your local SEO strategy.
