GMB Made Easier – A free tool to simplify your posts

It’s not surprising that with COVID-19, many location-based, brick-and-mortar businesses have had changing hours, closures, and somewhere in between. It’s been tough for customers too – not knowing if their favorite services are open and if so, are there new requirements for entering (masks, distance between customers, etc.)?

For any business, multi-location or otherwise, it’s tough to keep up with changing requirements and make sure that precious customers have the latest and most up-to-date information. In these changing times, you don’t want to lose a customer to a competitor because they had the wrong information displayed in their Google search results.

Well, great news! We’ve developed a free tool to easily automate and update the status of all of your locations with Google My Business. Imagine being able to easily create and publish Google My Business (GMB) Posts through the GMB API. 

The “wow” factor: easily create posts for multiple locations easily and efficiently, all in one easy-to-use interface that you already use every day: Google Sheets.

  • The tool is called AgencyAutomators – Posts which allows you to easily build Google My Business Posts for each of your locations.
  • It allows you to schedule posts in the future, which is not natively available through the Google My Business interface.
  • It allows you to also set up UTM tagging so that you can easily track the effectiveness of your marketing efforts in Google Analytics with a consistent tagging setup.

Where to find it:  Head to the G-suite Marketplace.
