Google Shopping

jasonBusiness, Google, Tools Comments

This week we’ve been diving in to Google Shopping!

If you sell anything, whether online or offline, Google offers their “Merchant Center” to help you get your products listed on Google!

Google never ceases to amaze me at how many resources they have to help businesses succeed! The Google Apps Suite alone is worth 100’s of dollars each month all for $5 per user!

So to get started the first thing you need to do is sign up for a Google Merchant account using your current business Google Account. Then take a few minutes and read through the “Beginners Guide”. We found that you do have to have a website to participate.

One of the coolest things that we found was that you can use Google Sheets a product data feed. As long as you use the correct format Google can pull your product data from a Google Sheet and use it to display your products on Google Shopping!

We’re getting ready to do some paid marketing promoting portable sheds with Google Shopping so we’ll keep you updated with those results!

Thanks for reading! Let me know if you are already using Google Shopping or have any experience with it.

Have a productive week guys!
