In this increasingly mobile world with the rapidly growing use of phones and tablets, attracting the attention of prospects and your current customers is essential. Google Offers | For Business can help bring customers to your door.
Google Offers has been around for a couple of years. Recently, Google is promoting it more, and upgrading tools and delivery systems. Here is what Google says, “Your business benefits from increased awareness when customers find your offer on Google+, the Google Offers website, and mobile apps for Offers and Wallet. The offer can be used instantly, or saved for later.”
We all know that offering coupons and discounts will drive foot traffic to stores. With Google Offers, consumers can find, use, or save offers to their Google account. Google has made it easier to find Google Offers on mobile devices with their new Google Maps and Google+ apps. Consumers can simply click or tap the ‘Get offer’ button to save the offer and use it in stores.
Your offer can reach customers on Google Maps when they are searching for places nearby or looking for local businesses like yours. Your business will be prominently displayed with a blue tag icon next to it, alerting customers to your offer.
With Google’s new tool, you can now, “Create your offer in minutes and see it go live in just a few hours. Simply choose the type of offer you’d like to create and assign a budget.”
When a customer saves your offer, Google brings them to your door by sharing an offer reminder when they are near your store. Google will help remind them when your offer is expiring too, through email and mobile alerts. It is simple to redeem your Google Offers.
Google says, “You must create and verify a Google Places for Business listing or local Google+ page (it’s free to add your local business information if you don’t already own a Places for Business listing or local Google+ page)”
