With thousands of locations across the globe, Roger was eager to get his brand’s products and services directly in front of Google searchers. Setting up an e-commerce page on the company website returned less than exciting results, as the competition, Amazon and other large online retailers, were reaching his customers before he could.
When Roger discovered that dbaPlatform could upload the inventory of each individual store directly to the GMB profile he nearly spit out his coffee. Finally, his brand could capitalize on the millions of “micro moments” happening on Google every day. Customers would see his inventory right at the top of the Google results. Soon his locations reported healthy increases in foot traffic and online orders for in-store pickup.
Linda’s team at Star Media performs on-page SEO optimizations for their 15 clients. When a client approached them with information on the new e-commerce site built right into Google My Business, called See What’s In Store (SWIS), they were excited to try something new but worried about the time and energy it would take to get the inventory fully synced. They didn’t want to try SWIS alone.
Luckily for Linda, dbaPlatform had experience with thousands of retailers and hundreds of brands. The SWIS team at dbaPlatform carefully guided Star Media and its client through the simple process of verifying their inventory on Google.
A few months after activation, the client reported noticeable increases in online orders to their brick and mortar locations. Star Media spread the word about the success story and now 8 more of their clients are ready to activate SWIS.

Our system will update your Google inventory feed every 24 hours.
Most feeds will be active within 30 - 45 days.
Once we request verification, In 5-10 business days Google will reach out and schedule a date window of 2 weeks. They will request a date for you to choose that works best, and a contact person at each store location to conduct the inventory verification. Google will randomly choose 100 SKU’s at each location that will need to be verified for quantity, price, and SKU number along with a handful of photos of the merchandise. This process could take up to two hours and is only a one time thing with Google and will not require multiple verifications.
