Overall Satisfaction with Google My Business

We have used Google My Business because it is one of the most favorable digital marketing tools in terms of business and social strategy, to sponsor the profile and web page of any company in the Google search engine. We also find it very conducive to provide key information that we use to enhance the profile of the business through interaction with users.

Google My Business is a very easy to use tool to make present on the internet the template of any business. Its simple management encourages the use of the application as a method of digital strategy to redirect or focus our attention to the tastes and needs of users. However, it often presents errors and rejections in the update or inclusion of data that can prove to be a frustrating obstacle.

Like Google, Google My Business provides customer service, but unfortunately when problems arise in the application and a report is made, the solutions offered are automatic responses from the system that do not solve the problems, and do not show any intention to address and investigate particular cases.
  • Because it is a tool implemented by Google, you get the great benefit of appearing in the Google search engine, Google Maps and Google+, all favoring the inclusion of the business in one of the most popular websites in the internet world, with the advantage of accessing from any device.
  • Google My Business has a review system in which other users can rate any business, which is previously registered on its platform, in a descriptive review through a star rating system.
  • The Google My Business API allows the business owner to keep up to date with reviews about their business, and to interact with customers within the platform.
  • To register on the Google My Business platform, a series of steps must be followed, including the verification of the data provided by the business, which generates credibility and trust to users who visit the profile.
  • It is a social network or free tool provided by Google in order to help all companies and businesses to include and manage their figure on the web to extend their customer reach.
  • It offers the user to include information about their business, allowing to write reviews about the company, photos related to the business premises, working hours, location and contact details.
  • Google My Business offers the user business owner access to statistics of visits, search locations and clicks to the profile, to improve search engine optimization (SEO).
  • You can choose to customize each business profile even if you do not have a website.
  • Although the objective of Google My Business is to promote the profile of the business to achieve greater reach of users, the reality is that it is not easy to place the company on the first page of the search engine, which has the highest number of visits.
  • The publications are not easy to perform, eventually the server throws many errors when trying to include an image or video with rejection messages due to the policies; but later the exact same procedure is performed and the update is granted.
  • While updates are a pro for the improvement of any application, Google My Business has the disadvantage of presenting errors that cause problems to business profiles that cannot be solved with customer service.
  • This totally free tool is used for the benefit of companies that intend to improve their SEO positioning and obtain greater visibility of their site on the web, Google being the pioneer of these advantages with a zero advertising cost.
  • The constant use and good performance of Google My Business has attracted more customers and has allowed us to expand the digital reach of companies in the online business world, allowing with a single click or none, to extend the promotion of business profiles and websites.
