Google Maps, Search to give Better Insights &Capabilities to Businesses

When people search for data on the web, they expect to find solutions to their inquiries quickly. This is very valid when it comes to the people who browse close-by businesses. Business Profiles help vendors share useful data to their potential customers, such as the store timings, unavailable stocks, and seasonal discounts and offers. But sometimes, people tend to ask direct questions for which there is no better person to answer than the business owner himself. Say, for example, “Does your restaurant serve vegetarian desserts?” or “How many will a plate of lasagna serve?” Google is always on the lookout to improve its existing services or come up with unique and better applications for its massive user-base. And now, due to a steep increase in online businesses as a result of this unprecedented global pandemic, Google is revealing the ability to make sure verified businesses and customers are in constant touch. It isn’t any rocket science enhancement, but a simple addition of direct messaging that is now available on Google Maps will soon be functional on Google Search.

With an end goal to make it simpler for businesses to interface with potential customers and vice versa, Google Maps is improving its messaging capabilities and customer insights. Besides tapping on the Message icon on the business profile, customers will have the option to talk with business owners from the posts they publish. Because of this addition, Google Maps will soon be able to provide its business owners with more metrics and insights to give them a profound understanding of how clients can find their business profiles.

Google declared the new highlights for businesses on Google Maps and Google Search via a blog post. The tech giant has stated that when users search for something on the web, they need quick answers to their questions, which could sometimes be a niche. In the wake of diverting messages from the Business Profiles, verified businesses will have the option to cater to customer inquiries on Google Maps from the business messages section situated on the Updates tab. Besides, if the customer’s call isn’t answered, they will be prompted to send a message to the business on their profile.

As per what Google stated, people have initiated more than twice as many messages to businesses directly from Business Profiles on Search and Maps from the beginning of this current year; before long; companies will have the option to see their messages instantly from Google Search and message customers from their computers as well.

Starting ahead of schedule one year from now, updates to the performance page show if customers noticed your business via Maps or Search will be visible, too, alongside information about whether they saw it from a PC or a smartphone. The performance data will be accessible to visit for up to six months.
