Google has now started adding a large “Request a Quote” button to the most eligible business listings in its search results.
Recently, Joy Hawkins first spotted this feature in the search results and she was quick enough to share a screenshot on Twitter:
The “Request a Quote” button will also appear in the mobile search results when somebody searches for the business name.
Since a lot of people are able to get the “Request a Quote” on their business name’s search results, it is pretty sure tht it is not a test by Google. Google have started rolling out this feature, but right now it is limited only to a certain business listings.
The businesses that have opted for the Google My Business messaging feature will have a “Request a Quote” button added to their business listing.
If you have not turned on the messaging feature on your business listing, then you can do it by the following steps given below:
I, along with others, can replicate this feature which means it’s not just a test. However, it is limited to certain business listings.
- Open the Google My Business app.
- Open the location you would like to manage.
- Tap on Customers.
- Tap the Messages option.
- Tap Turn on.
The messages that you receive from the customers can be viewed and replied to from the Google My Business app. The Users will receive their messages on their Google Maps app.
The new feature introduced by Google has huge potential to generate more number of leads for the businesses. This feature will help in keeping and retaining on the Google search platform.
With the new “Request a Quote” button, the users need not visit the business website to get a quote. It can all be done from the Google’s new feature itself.
The “Request a Quote” button might not be doing it big for generating traffic, but when it comes to lead generation, this feature is considered to be the best option.
Google will be getting you enough leads, but it will not be through any kind of website traffic. So the website traffic will not see any increase, and it is upto each business owners to decide whether to use “Request a Quote” button or not. But such a thing has not be talked about much as it is just the initial stage.
