Google My Business guide

Are you using Google My Business?

For those unfamiliar, Google My Business (not to be confused with Google+) is a platform that Google created to help businesses manage the search results that show when someone searches your business name. This is where businesses manage the contact information, open hours, reviews, and pictures that show in Google search results.

Recently, Google added the ability for business owners to post updates to their Google My Business listing, allowing you to share photos, announce sales or specials, showcase new products, and list upcoming events.

These Google My Business posts show up when someone searches your business’s name on Google, giving you an easy way of occupying more real estate in the search results, and drawing more attention and traffic.

Google My Business also gives you insights into how many people viewed and clicked on each of your posts.

Additionally, Google My Business shows the search queries that people use to find your business, an extremely valuable insight.

Posting on Google My Business is a no-brainer for any business that wants to stand out in Google search results. However, posts on Google My Business expire after 7 days. After that time, they no longer show in the search results.

This means that at least once a week, you have to remember to log back into Google My Business and post something again.

No need to worry though. With OneUp, you can schedule your Google My Business posts week or months ahead of time, and even have them repeat at set intervals, such as once a week.

This allows you to reap the benefits of being active on Google My Business, without the hassle of constantly going back in every week to manually post something when your previous update expires.

How to schedule post to Google My Business with OneUp

The process is simple. Just connect your Google My Business account on the Accounts page.

Then schedule your GMB post, optionally adding any link or image to the post.

Choose how often you would like the post repeated.

Then choose to post it now, or schedule it for a date in the future.
