It’s not an easy task to move your company, regardless of if you’ve been in business for a while or if you’re just starting out. It’s easy to focus on what needs to happen with your physical location and forget to update your online presence! Don’t fret, we’ve put together a quick guide of what to consider when you’re moving.
1 Month Out:
Send out an email announcement to all contacts & customers.

Post on all social media accounts and online listings to announce that you’re moving. Make sure to include the date and new address.

 
2 Weeks Out:
Update address on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Yelp & any other online listings you may have.
 
Update your address on your Google  Business Listing. You’ll want to make sure you edit  your existing listing, not create a new one. Google will need to send a postcard to verify  your new location, so make sure you can accept mail there before  your request to address change. These postcards typically take 5 to 10 days to arrive, but they’ve taken up to 14 days before.
 
 
After You Moved:
Once you are set up in  your new spot, make sure to send out a final email newsletter announcement letting everyone know “we’ve moved!” You’ll want to include the new address & any new contact information. Double check to make sure you’ve hyperlinked the new address to Google maps. This will help people easily pull up directions on their phone.
 
 
A few other things you want to keep in mind when  moving  your  business:

 
– You’ll likely need to update your address on  your website,  business cards & other printed materials.
– We recommend doing a change of address or mail forwarding request through  your local post office.
– It’s always a good idea to search for  your  business a few times on Google in a private browser to ensure there’s no other websites or spots online that you need to update  your address.
