The new Click-to-Message feature on Google My Business is a great way to connect with new customers. It provides the ability for customers who find your business listing from a Google search to message you directly. The ability to instantly start conversations and answer prospective customer questions straight from Google is a powerful tool for business owners.

Connect your Skipio 10-digit phone number and receive your messages straight to your Skipio account! With automated text campaigns and scheduled messages, connecting with your future customers is a piece of cake.  The best part is you can get it set up in 30 seconds or less!

Watch the full step-by-step video walkthrough.

If videos aren’t your thing here’s how to get it all set up:

Step 1: To turn on messaging with customers, sign in to your Google My Business account. (Haven’t set up your Google My Business account yet? For a step-by-step walkthrough click here.)

Step 2: Select “messaging” in the home menu.

Step 3: Add your Skipio 10-digit phone number.

Step 4: Confirm your Skipio 10-digit phone number.

And you’re done! Now that your Google Click-to-Message is ready to go, it’s a perfect time to collect some Google reviews!

Yep, Skipio does reviews too.

90% of your future customers look at your online reviews before making a purchase. Positive online reviews add new revenue and growth, while negative reviews – and a lack of reviews – drive customers away. Having recent positive reviews on major search sites pushes your company above the competition, and earns you more business.
