We’re excited to announce that Google is implementing a “Book Now” feature that will allow business owners to take direct bookings online through Google My Business. This is big news, and it’s essential that your business uses this new feature. 

This is big. Customers can now book with businesses in under a minute. Will you be one of the few to take advantage of this feature and stands out in the crowd?

This is essential. We’ve learned that being able to take immediate action is something your customers are looking for- if they see your competitor using this feature and you’re not, they will likely go with who is most convenient (see our blog post Customers Want Immediate Action)

Not only can this make bookings so much easier for your business, but you will also be able to track how many leads you got through the GMB dashboard- giving you the ability to see how this feature is working for your business!
