Summary of this tutorial:

Start by installing and activating the Business Profile plugin listed below:

wordpress.org/plugins/business-profile/

Once activated there will be a new menu item for you to go to labeled Business Profile.

Going to that page will allow you to select the schema type for the plugin to know what information it needs.

You will want to select the schema type that is closest to your business.

In the contact information you need to provide the name and address of your business. After entering the address click on the Retrieve map coordinates that are needed for the map.

Get your google maps API key by clicking the link in the plugin’s page for you to be redirected and you be able to click the get a key button.

Once your project is ready you will be redirected to setup credentials, enter the information for your project and then copy your API key.

With the API key added you can finish adding your contact information including your hours that you are available.

After all of that has been set up, you will now be able to add the shortcode to the page you desire it to appear on and save the page.

Your other option is under Appearance, Widgets you will be able to see the Contact Card widget that you are able to add.

Pretty neat but would be good to have a smaller version that could go at the bottom of the page in the footer area…
