Google is now trying a subscription billing model for Google My Business, something Google has explored doing in the past, and is now actively pursuing. Google sent Tom Waddington an email asking him to "upgrade" his business profile for $50 a month.

The $50 monthly subscription upgrade gives you the Google Guaranteed badge and helps you "stand out with an upgraded business profile." Here is the email he received from Google and shared on Twitter:

This is still early, so it is hard to know if the $50 per month will have any return on investment.

Matt McGee thinks it is a no brainer:
