Create a post for Google My Business
Use your usual post creation workflow to compose your text message and visual design. How can I create a post
- Only "What's new?" type of Google My Business posts are available
- Your post can contain text (up to 1500 characters) + 1 attached image (square)
- You can't add a call to action (CTA) button to your posts
“What's new” posts: Posts that provide general information about your business. This type of GMB post doesn't require a title and 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 My Business works a little different 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 evergreen posts. How to use repeating posts
