What can this platform do?
- Info: Present your business your way. Here you have the freedom upload all of your business details. Add your shop location, opening hours, services available, mission statement, website links, phone number, plus more. This is essentially your business card.
- Insights: Much like Facebook / Instagram etc, you are able to track your page performance and insights. See first-hand how many customers search for your business, or simply track how many times customers call your business using the Google My Business feature.
- Posts: A picture is worth a 1000 words. Upload your Offers / New Products or even upcoming Events of your business.
- Reviews: Important to any business. This feature provides customers the opportunity to leave feedback of their experience, and also allows for potential clients to research, and understand the business before they make a purchase.
- Messaging: Another way to obtain direct messages from clients. The message will come through Google My Business and send an alert to your email so you wont miss any enquiries.
- Photos: Let your clients see what you have to offer, or even introduce your team. Your options are endless, and you have the freedom to stand out from the crowd.
- Products: This feature is my personal favourite.Here you are able to upload a variety of Products and even put them in categories for easy viewing. This allows you to include a photo of the product, a detailed caption / description, PLUS a link to your website / additional pages.
- Services: If you understand the importance of “Keywords” you will love this option. List in detail what products you offer and what brands you use so your customers can find you.
