If you like to keep your Google My Business profile active, you know that posts are essential: Offers, events, news…

However, these posts disappear after 7 days of being published, so you have to always be on top of your listing to never run out of content. 

Well, look how simple it is to schedule all your posts with Metricool and make sure a publication lasts as long as you want.

How to schedule a post on Google My Business with Metricool

To schedule content on Google My Business, first, you need a Metricool account.

If you already have it, skip this step. If you are not yet part of Metricool, register for free through your Facebook account or with your email.

Once you are registered, in the connection dashboard, connect the Google My Business account that you want to manage with Metricool.

Let’s get started!

1 Go to Planning

Click on Planning.  Here you will see a calendar with all your posts scheduled. 

2 Create a New Post

Click on ‘Create New Post’ or tap directly on the calendar on the time and day you want to schedule your Google My Business post.

3 Select Google My Business

If you only want to publish on Google My Business, unselect the rest of your social networks.

4 Write your post

Write the text you want to add to your Google My Business posts, add an image or a link. Keep in mind that depending on the information you add to the post, it will be published in the publications or photos section.

These are the different possibilities to publish:

✅ Text: post is published.

✅ Text + Link: post with button, and the image will be taken from the link. (a link always has to be accompanied by a text to be published)

✅ Text + Image: Post with an image.

✅ Text + Link + Picture: Post with picture and button.

✅ Image (without any text): is published as a photo.

5 Click on ‘Save’.

Finally, choose the time and day of the publication and click ‘save’.

You already have your Google My Business post scheduled to publish automatically on your listing.

6 Duplicate the posts you want to last more than 7 days

If you want to share an offer that lasts for a month on your listing, bear in mind that Google My Business will remove your post after 7 days. You can make sure your post last longer with Metricool. 

Click on the post, click on ‘duplicate’ and program the post for 7 days later. Your post will be active for as long as you want.

You can also duplicate it and drag it on the calendar to the day and time you prefer.
