Can you schedule GMB posts directly from Google?

Google My Business (aka GMB, Google Business Profiles, or GBP) posts are great and can help your SEO.

However, you’ve probably noticed that there is no way to schedule Google posts directly from your Google business listing:

To overcome these limitations and efficiently manage your Google Business Profile posts, you need to use a specialized scheduling tool that integrates seamlessly with Google Business Profile. OneUp is designed specifically for this purpose, offering a range of features to streamline your Google Business Profile management:

  • Easy scheduling of posts for multiple locations
  • Support for all post types (Updates, Events, Offers)
  • Bulk posting capabilities for efficient management
  • Post recycling to maintain consistent activity
  • Dynamic content insertion for location-specific information

By using a tool like OneUp, you can save time, ensure consistent posting across all your locations, and maximize the impact of your Google Business Profile presence.

OneUp supports Google post scheduling, in addition to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok, Threads, and LinkedIn.

How to schedule Google Businss Profile posts (What’s New, Event, and Offer posts)

Google Business Profile offers three main types of posts, each serving a different purpose:

  1. What’s New (Update) posts: Share general updates, news, or information about your business
  2. Event posts: Promote upcoming events, classes, or special occasions
  3. Offer posts: Highlight special promotions, discounts, or limited-time deals

Effectively utilizing all three post types can help you create a dynamic and engaging Google Business Profile. Here’s why each type is important:

  • What’s New posts keep your profile fresh and inform customers about recent developments
  • Event posts drive attendance and engagement for your business activities
  • Offer posts can attract new customers and encourage repeat business

By scheduling a mix of these post types, you can maintain an active and diverse presence on your Google Business Profile, potentially improving your local search visibility and customer engagement.

Using OneUp, you can easily schedule posts to Google Business Profile with all the necessary elements, including CTA buttons. Here’s an overview of OneUp’s scheduling process:

  1. Create your post: Compose your post content, including text, images, and links
  2. Choose post type: Select whether it’s a What’s New, Event, or Offer post
  3. Add CTA button: Include a relevant call-to-action button to drive user engagement
  4. Set scheduling options: Choose the date, time, and frequency for your post
  5. Select locations: Pick which of your Google Business Profile locations to post to
  6. Preview and schedule: Review your post and confirm the scheduling

OneUp’s intuitive interface makes it easy to create and schedule posts that stand out on your Google Business Profile. By using CTA buttons effectively, you can encourage users to take specific actions, such as visiting your website, making a purchase, or contacting your business directly.

First, connect your Google My Business location(s) on the Accounts page:

Schedule GBP posts

Then click “Create a post”.

Then select which GMB locations you would like to post to (if you have more than one connected). You can post to multiple different Google My Business locations at the same time:

You can even click the “Auto-generate caption” button to have your post’s caption automatically written for you.

NOTE: OneUp also has a Custom Fields feature, where you can insert dynamic info (such as the unique address of each location) into the specific post for each GMB location.

Then choose whether you would like to also “Add the image to the Photos section of Google My Business”, and choose whether you want the post to be a What’s New (aka Update) post, an Event post, or an Offer post:

Schedule Event and Offer Google posts

You can also choose “None” if you ONLY want the image to be scheduled to the Photos section of your Google My Business locations – and not publish as a Google post.

You can check out the post preview in OneUp to see how your post will look once published on GMB:

OneUp supports all Google My Business CTA button types (Learn More, Call, Book, Sign Up, Order Online, and Buy).

In addition to just scheduling posts, OneUp allows you to set GMB posts to automatically repeat at whatever interval you choose. For example, this post will repeat every week:

Then either post it now, or schedule your GMB post for a date in the future, or save your GMB post as a draft.

Team members and Post approvals
