Hi,

 

is there any settings to target ads to people who have a Google My Business profile?

 

I offer a service that is interesting for those who have a shop profile on google maps.

how to reach them?

 

Thanks

Nope; This (IMHO) would be a violation of Google privacy Policy.

Yeah, I think @MosheTLV is right on about that. Besides, the gmail account associated with the ownership of the GMB account may not have anything to do with the business owner, or person who makes those kinds of decisions. You would be more likely to find that audience with some combination of other targeting methods. Business professionals as an affinity audience for example. Then once you get some data in you can start making optimization decisions based on who/what/when/where/how users find your ad content engaging.

Thanks,

 

I don't see how that would be a privacy violation since the data doesn't leave google services... but I get @MosheTLV point.

 

Since I'm using Adwords Express I don't find a way to target audience beyond their location Smiley Sad

 

any advise?
