Pointy from Google
Pointy helps you to easily display your OTC products on Google so that your patients can see what you stock. More and more people are looking for OTC product information online before going into a store but many local pharmacies don’t have an easy way to show this information. This means that patients aren’t seeing relevant results when they do local searches for OTC goods and products. Pointy solves this problem by making it really easy for local pharmacies to get their OTC products online.
Features of Pointy from Google include:
A Pointy Page essentially serves as an online catalogue for your pharmacy, depicting important information including store hours, location, contact information and a product listing. Pointy Pages are easy to navigate and allow shoppers to quickly identify your pharmacy as a convenient place to buy a desired product. Pointy Pages are hosted and maintained by Pointy, with no work required on your part – all you have to do is scan your products as you normally would. Pointy takes care of the rest.
The See What’s in Store (SWIS) feature allows you to display your pharmacy’s products on your Business Profile on Google, and is visible on Google Maps and, potentially, via Google search. It also gives you a better chance of showing up in relevant product-related search results for your store. With SWIS, shoppers can easily browse your product offerings and identify your pharmacy as a preferred buying option.
Local Inventory Ads are highly visual product ads that can show up in search results on Google when someone nearby searches for an OTC product you stock. This optional premium feature is a two-click solution and is only available to pharmacies with a physical store. To create ads for all your products, all you need to do is set your budget and location.
You also get access to an easy-to-understand dashboard where you can see the searches shoppers have used to find your store, along with your most viewed products.
Pointy from Google is a free download for Micro Merchant Systems users. When you scan your OTC products, Pointy matches the UPC barcode to an image and product name in our database. Your products are then uploaded onto your online product catalog. From there, you also have access to See What’s in Store and Local Inventory Ads.
