Set up messaging in Google My Business

In order to configure messages, the app must be installed on your device, as it is no longer configurable from the web. You should keep in mind that you should always verify your company so that the message option is displayed.

Once you have verified our company and installed the Google My Business app on your phone, you will only need to follow these steps to set up your messages.

To do this, go to Settings > Messages. Next, you need to activate the Messages option and edit the welcome message. With this you will have the messages activated and configured in your Google My Business account.

Once all this is done, when a person writes to your Google My Business account, they will receive the automatic reply you set up. Then, you will be able to interact with the customer and send them your WhatsApp link so as to continue the conversation perhaps using the Callbell tool.

What is the Google business profile and how to set it up?

Although we talked about Google My Business, Google is currently undergoing a major update and will be renamed Google Business Profile in 2022. The great advantage of this service is that, once this update is done, companies will be able to manage their profile directly from Google maps or in searches.

The biggest difference between these two systems is that although they are virtually identical, users will be able to solve their verification problems or other additional problems such as address, publications, opening hours or reviews and answers from search or even maps.

Callbell: the perfect complement

Callbell is a multi-agent tool for communicating with customers using social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Telegram and WhatsApp. As mentioned above, Callbell can be the perfect complement to Google My Business. This is because My Business attracts traffic and opens the communication channel for customers and from there they are redirected to WhatsApp, where they are served with the Callbell tool.

This tool is very interesting, as it allows us to get the metrics of our business. At the same time, we can connect multiple agents where everyone is the owner of their own conversation.
