Communicating with your Customers using Your Google Business Listing
With the recent pandemic there has been an increased need to communicate with customers due to changes in hours or ways we handle purchases etc. Posting these updates on your website and Facebook page are great ways to handle this communication. However, there are customers that you could also be reaching through your google listing.
Many times we don’t think of using our google local business listing as a way of communication. Chances are if you have a local business, and a Google local listing, people will come across that first when searching for your business, even before your website or social media pages.
Your listing allows you not only to post offers, updates, events and products, but also your website, phone number, address, email and more! Your google business listing is a great way to alert your customers in a simple and clear way while giving them all the contact information they need with just one search.
