Google My Business (GMB) is a powerful tool for reaching customers. It can be integrated with your system, to increase your ability to conveniently communicate with your leads or customers. When someone Googles a category of business, most businesses that pop up have the buttons to call, save, get directions, or access the website. You can make your business stand out more, and reach additional leads, by adding the chat/message option.
This will allow you to conveniently reach leads through SMS communications, completely integrated with the system. Follow these steps to learn how:
