Say hola to the new Google My Business app, and say hola to your next customer
Launched in June 2014, Google My Business is any local business’s best friend on the Internet. Google My Business is a united interface that is designed to make it easier for local businesses as well as national brands to be found on Google. It is a huge change from the sponsored listings and directory listings of the past on Google. This allows any business owner to get the visibility they need on Google in an easy way that is also easy to manage.
You can use Google My Business even if you don’t already have a Google account. Just make one. If you do already have a Google account, you can sign into Google My Business and begin using with your existing user ID and password.
Google My Business app is now available with all new functionalities to help businesses not only keep their presence on Google up to date, connect with customers and attract new ones. Let’s look at the features of the new app:
A simple, free way to stand out on Google with a great Business Profile:
With a press of the new Post button in the app, you can upload a photo, create an offer or event and add it right to your Business Profile on Google. You can also manage your business information on Google from the Profile tab and watch your edits appear seamlessly across Search and Maps.
Your customers on Google—all in one place:
When people find you on Google, they can connect with you in a number of ways – calling, messaging, or even leaving a review, right from your Business Profile. You’ll be able to see all of these customers on Google in one place from the app’s new Customers tab.
From here, you can easily respond to customer reviews and post offers to your followers to keep them coming back in the door, and soon you’ll be able to respond to messages right from the app. And because Google My Business is always on the clock, we’ll be sure to notify you when you get a new customer connection.
Keep track of the results that matter:
