Get more customers in your store with Pointy
Getting new customers is hard, especially when competitors seem to have endless budgets. However, more and more people are using Google to look up products and stores near them. It's a big win if you can get your store in front of these people - which is exactly what Pointy does.
What Pointy does
Get your products on Google
The integration with Paladin puts all of your in-store products onto Google on your own Pointy page. Searchers can see that you stock what they want and get directions to come in-store and make the sale
Get access to an easy-to-understand retailer dashboard that shows you crucial information on what people are searching for, your most popular products, and how your Pointy page is performing.
See What's In Store
When people use Google to search for products or a hardware store near them, let them see what's in your store (it's in the name!) right there on Google's homepage. They can search your products or click through onto your Pointy page. They make a search and you can make a sale.
Local Inventory Ads
Making effective ads just got easy. In two clicks, you choose a location and budget you want to spend. We'll show people on Google your products when they make a relevant search like "cordless drill [your location]" or "hardware store near me".
Hardware stores love Pointy
"My thinking was simple: hey if I get these items online and people know about them, I’ll attract new customers. Pointy is definitely worth it, especially if you want to get your store on the map. It’s easy to install – the whole thing took a matter of minutes"
David Strano, Ambridge Do It Best
"For me, the hardest task is reaching new customers. Pointy has helped massively with this—now when someone does a simple Google search for a product we stock, they're directed to our store."
Michelle Leopold, Standard 5&10 Ace, San Francisco
