Google Posts Now Have A 'Call Now' Button

Andrew James

So Google just rolled out a new feature for Posts:
A Call Now button.

According to Search Engine Roundtable it will show your dealership's phone number when someone finds you in the local knowledge panel.

My question for you: Are you taking advantage of Google Posts?

How is this different than the normal "call" button that shows up on company's google profile when you search for them? I like that there are more ways to call the dealership... but I guess I don't know the difference.

Pretty much all google posts have CTA's attached to them. typically its linked to inventory pages or something. But having it attached directly to the post is awesome. Otherwise, a person would have to close the post and scroll back to the business info section in order to hit the call button. So its an easier and better experience.

I did notice that the GMB app for iphone does not yet have "Call Now" as a CTA option. it has to be done on the desktop.

Chris I was thinking the same thing. That particular "call now" is attached to a CRM campaign that is trackable and data mined. 

Mark Rask

This is a great idea
