As a partner with Google, hungr knows the importance Google plays from searches and how customers order via Google. Customers can directly order through Google from our partner restaurants, so a business’s appearance in the search results matters. Let’s say you’re a sandwich place: a customer looks up “sandwiches near me” and your restaurant pops up on the suggestions. Now what? How do you convince them to click that order button, or come in for pickup?
First, you need to know that the majority of information on Google Maps and Google itself will be populated from the internet unless you register your store through Google My Business. Google My Business provides information for the tab that appears on the right side of the screen when looking up your store. It is important to control that information, so it is always accurate and presentable, so if you are not already registered, sign up for Google My Business as soon as possible.
Once You have Google My Business set up and running, here are several easy steps you can take to prepare for online ordering and marketing.
In the age of digital and mobile ordering, many new customers will have to choose between several locations based solely on images and information they see online. This especially applies to the younger generations, who use the internet to research potential purchases constantly. Updating and controlling the information displayed through Google will take a bit of time, but it will increase your sales and online traffic over the competition.
