Ratings and Reviews
The app is necessary! No butts about it!
Yes the app itself is awesome if you’re a small or even large business owner with an online presence through Google My Business. You are able to do everything you can from the desktop while being on the go, you can upload pictures or change biz info and make posts which are very useful along with getting notifications if a customer leaves a review etc it’s all right there at your fingertips. If you’re looking to get verified and have problems with that it has nothing to do with this app itself as I have seen others give a negative rating because of this when it play absolutely no role in the process whatsoever. Some things I would like to see in the future are the ability to message customers with some type of instant messaging straight from our GMB listings and this app as most customers would rather contact through text or messaging. That would be sick!
The App is great, but....
The app is great, but getting verified on Google My Business for my branch office in Tampa, FL was a huge waste of time, causing my branch to lose exposure and revenues. After not receiving the post card in the mail that Google sends to verify your location, I requested a second card. After weeks, we never received. I was then told my next option was to supply interior and exterior photos of the office. So I did exactly that, supplying approximately 10 photos, yet was denied again. I was then told I had to do a video conference with Google. After installing Google Hangouts, I provided the time frame my business was open for the video conference. I specifically provided the time frame, including the time zone, yet the Google rep called when we were closed. This happened (3) times before they finally called during the provided 8 hr. time frame we were open. This process took several months which we lost possible revenues from lost exposure. Very disappointed in the amount of time and the hoops we had to jump through to get our real office verified, yet I have similar competitors who have fake listings, pretending to have real offices by using private mailboxes to disguise and mislead the general public into thinking they are real offices. For this, you get one star. I hope nobody else has to go through this experience because it was a huge slap in the face and waste of time!
I agree google has wrong focus
Google spends too much time trying to make people happy, instead of publishing facts. My business is a 140 yr farm. We don’t have to advertise, but we have to be on the internet just because some business use it to verify you now. But it seems Google Business can’t follow their own terms. A seasonal business has to post signage. We aren’t seasonal (in fact we don’t get any days off). Yet they required us to post a store front photo. I told them it’s a farm. I sent them a photo of the office bldg. they didn’t like it. The issue wasn’t my store front. It’s that google miscalculated our road, and we are 600 ft from the current MAPS inaccurate road. EARTH has it correctly. I printed this out (to correct for everyone’s benefit) and now my business has been SUSPENDED. I’m not whining. I’m providing feedback that google business only works for in the box retail store fronts. Not any business, even though I’m a rural area, we NEED business exposure. Doesn’t matter I’m accredited by BBB, the state SOS, area chamber of commerce..who know me and that we are a physical business. So I will buy a sign, put it on my building JUST FOR GOOGLE. The bldg is 600 feet from entrance. Extremely common on farms. No one will see the sign. Except a google (not even street view can). Apparently they are “right” even though it cheaply shows no street view!
