Google launched a survey designed to find out how interesting My business users are paid premium features.
Anyone else get this bananas questionnaire from GMB today about updated features and pricing for those features? #GMB #Maps #LocalSEO pic.twitter.com/YvfAiItoLc

The survey begins with questions that Google can use to figure out how much a company usually spends on advertising per year. Next, Google mentions features that can be launched on a paid basis. The rest of the questions are related to these potential opportunities, and users are asked to select those of them in which they are most and least interested.
Among the new features listed are the following:
- Customer support;
- “Book” button (“Book”) in the business profile;
- Promotion of the “Book” button;
- Verified reviews;
- Promoted pins on the map;
- Call Recording and Reporting;
- Confirmed reservation;
- Automatic replies to messages;
- Automatic responses to reviews;
- Getting leads from competitor profiles;
- Price requests;
- Selected reviews;
- Remove ads from the business profile;
- Confirmed licenses;
- Video in business profile, etc.
After the user makes his choice, Google will suggest possible subscription options and ask you to mark the preferred package.
Judging by the survey, Google is seriously considering adding premium features to My Business. In the meantime, the company collects information about what service users are willing to pay for.
Recall that in March of this year, Google My business updated the process of starting to work with the service.
