Nowadays, it is very important to have your business visible on Google. You get the most customers online every day through Google. From the ranks of new as well as existing customers. Most often, guests perform activities such as:
- navigation directly to you
- one click call for reservations and information
- check exact opening hours
- check photos and reviews from other guests
- find out what you have on your menu
You can set up your profile on Google and Google Maps directly in the administration of your cash register system. So when a customer finds your restaurant on Google, they will simply be able to click on your offer you have in Storyous and on online orders, if you have them activated with us.
WARNING: Hotels are not allowed to set menu on Google Maps
