Managing a Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) listing is no joke. It takes effort, a plan and when possible, a tool. This is exactly why we added a Google Business Profile (GBP) tool to our product suite.
Add Google Business Profile Questions & Answers With Our GBP Tool
I’m so excited to share this with you – a new feature was added to our Enhanced GBP Tool. Through our tool, you can now add Questions & Answers to your clients’ Google Business Profile listings. You can also answer questions posted by the public – score!
Shown above is an example of how easy it is to add a Question and an Answer to a Google Business Profile listing with our tool. Sure, when you’re managing one GBP listing it’s pretty simple to log in directly to that GBP listing and add a question, but have you tried it for 10 or more listings? What about monitoring the Questions & Answers for more than one listing? Now consider a multi-location brand or business where you need to add the same question and answer across all their listings? It can get really complicated to track which listing you have added the questions to, reviewed, and so on. Now calculate how time consuming this is for you and/or your team members – or even for your client.
With our GBP tool you can select which GBP listings the Question and Answer should be added to. You can add the question to all of them with a Select All option, or select the listings individually.
Shown above is an example of the option to select the listing you would like the Question and Answer added to individually. Notice the date and time option. You can schedule when these questions and answers will appear on the listing.
Using filters, you can even elect to see the unanswered questions only. This makes it so easy to see all the business listings you manage at a glance.
Did you know that the keywords within questions and answers can help a business listing to surface in the local map pack for certain queries? These mentions can absolutely make all the difference within a GBP business listing.
Our Google Business Profile Tool Is Powerful
Yes, there is more – Questions and Answers isn’t the only feature available through our Enhanced GBP Tool. Here’s a summary of what you can do with our powerful Google Business Profile tool.
- Schedule GBP Posts
- Schedule GBP Photos
- Schedule Questions & Answers
- Monitor and respond to Reviews
- Monitor Questions and Answers
- Access Historical Insights data
All of these features are available at the single location or multi-location level. You can complete these activities on one single GBP listing through the tool, or on all of them. It really is that powerful and that simple.
Keeping a GBP listing updated is one of the best ways (and with our GBP tool, the easiest) to help that client’s listing to surface more often in the Local Map Pack.
If your client wants direct access to the GBP tool, you can delegate user level access to their business listing in our platform, and they’ll be able to do the monitoring, responding and scheduling within our Google Business Profile enhanced tool.
Expertise Is Important and We Can Help You Demonstrate It
