[Launch] We’ve expanded our Menu editor to include Service Menus

Community Manager

Hi everyone,

 

Back in January we launched a new Menu editor for the food service industry. This month, we are excited to announce that we have expanded our menu editor to now include additional services.

 

Businesses in health & beauty, and service businesses, such as plumbers and florists, now have the ability to add their menu of services directly to their listing through their Google My Business account.

 

Same as the food establishment menu editor, this feature will only be available if the listing is not currently connected to a third party provider and for listings in English speaking locals. If your listing is currently displaying an incorrect menu, please see this help center link for more information on how to correct or remove the link.

 

Thanks,

Allyson Wright, Community Manager, Google My Business

Does this update include "solicitors" or "lawyers" in the service businesses?

Not seeing it yet, are dentists included the "health" classification?

Yes Dentist are included. I just added a Services menu to a dental client site.

Thanks for the confirmation Mike, looks like I'll stand by to stand by. Forgive me for the follow up question...do GMB listings need the Q&A or Messaging features activated in order to have the Services capability?

Not from what I am seeing. Not all of my 100 or so accounts have the feature but the ones that do are not using the Q&A feature. It is an interesting feature. It is not visible on the desktop (as far as I can tell). I am only seeing it on mobile but it is a nice feature.

It functions totally independent of any other feature. 

 

BTW messaging requires activation but Q & A is active whether you want it or not.

Thank you Mike, 2x for the Q&A info. Good to know since I'd never want it for dental clients, but might be time to embrace the suck.
