Google My Business Q&A 101
You may not have noticed but GMB Q&A has been gaining popularity since being released.
Sherry Bonelli goes into detail over at MarketingLand but I'll recap what local business owners should know and begin to act on immediately.
Google My Business Q&A is a crowd sourced feature that allows your customers (or potential customers) to post questions directly to your GMB listing.
The business can then answer the question directly from the panel. But don't be surprised if a Local Guide pops in to answer as well.
Of course, you'll need to have claimed and verified your GMB listing in order to do this, otherwise you'll be answering from a personal account instead of the verified (Owner) account.
If you have any questions about GMB Q&A or anything else in the digital marketing world, consultations are always free. You can contact us here.
Google is improving the GMB platform constantly and there are many tools that you can use to your advantage. We'll get into more of them in future posts.
