Get badges for your best establishments
Google wants to recognize the local brands who regularly provide an exceptional experience to its customers by awarding a new title "Local Favorite". This title will be put in their business listing pages as a reward for being the most efficient establishments in their related industry (Google My Business category).
This designation will accompany with an embedment of badge of honor (digital and physical). It will be a significant asset to encourage consumers and engage more quickly to the point of sales.
Give names and short URLs to your local listings
Verified Google My Business page by setting a profile name (similar to Facebook), @establishment, and a short URL with g.page/establishment.
Therefore, as soon as users fill in the URL, it will directly display and attach in their Google page. Soon, users will be able to do the same on Google Maps with the @establishment request.
Give more visibility from your logo
Based on the branding point of view, the logo is significantly more important than before. Institutions that have filled in all of the basic information (opening hours, phone number, etc.) will see it directly at the top right of their My Business page.
Publish cover picture that represents your stores
The cover picture feature has been improving. Indeed, the image specified in the dashboard as the main cover image will be displayed. Previously, another picture is randomly displayed regardless of the picture that the business actually choose.
Google My Business features are constantly evolving and it's a real challenge for retailers who need to manage dozens or hundreds of outlets. Also, it is always relevant to call on an experienced partner to help them optimize their local online presence.
