Google Business Profile is an effective tool for your business network, as it allows physical business locations to increase search visibility on Google Search and Google Maps. It makes it easy for your customers to get to your location, read and share reviews, and find useful information (phone number, website, working hours, etc.). Also, it's free and easy to use!
How to get started with posting on Google Business Profile:
Connect Your Google Business Profile to PromoRepublic.
Only verified locations can be connected to PromoRepublic. Read how to create and verify your local business on Google.
According to Google Business Profile API, there is a limitation - a business with over 10 locations cannot use the post feature through third-party tools like PromoRepublic.
Create a post for Google Business Profile
Posts made with PromoRepublic will get in the 'What's new?' section*
Your post can contain text (up to 1500 characters) and 1 attached image (square)

*What's new posts are the posts that provide general information about your business. This type of GBP posts doesn't require a title and a start/end date like 'Offer' and 'Event' post types do. For example, a restaurant could make a post to promote a new menu item.
❗Notice. Google Business Profile works a little differently than other social networks do - your posts expire after 1 week and will no longer appear in Google’s search results.
❗Tip. Keep sharing updates and stand out in Google Search and Maps by scheduling ahead and recycling posts. Read about it here.
