New to GBP Posts? Check out our Learning Hub which tells you what they are, how they work, and how to measure their effectiveness.
Login to your BrightLocal account and click ‘GBP Post Scheduler’ from the top menu. You’ll see a list of all of the Locations that you have purchased GBP Post Scheduler for.
To schedule posts you’ll need to connect the Location to their Google Business Profile (GBP) account which you can do by clicking the ‘Connect to GBP’ button and following the instructions here.
Once the GBP account is connected you can start posting.
Click ‘View’ and then ‘Create New Post’.
You have the option to create three different types of posts:
Enter the required information and an image that will help your post to stand out. You’ll receive a notification on-screen if the photo you upload isn't the right size or resolution.
If you need help writing a description for any type of post you can generate content using AI. Simply write a prompt in the description box (such as: write a description for 50% off offer), and click the ‘Generate content using AI’ button. Make sure you read through the copy that appears and make the necessary edits.
You can use the AI content generator 50 times per day, per account. We will tell you how many uses you have left and when you run out we’ll also let you know the number of hours left until you can use it again.
To preview your post hit the ‘Preview’ button. Once you’re happy with the post, click to schedule it or post it straight away.
If you choose to schedule it you can choose a date, time, and timezone for your post to go out.
Back in the GBP Post Scheduler dashboard, you’ll see any posts that are currently live, scheduled, expired, and rejected.
- Live = any posts that are currently live and viewable in your GBP.
- Scheduled= any posts that are scheduled to go live in the future.
- Expired = any event or offer posts that have expired.
- Rejected = any posts that Google has rejected. Goog can reject any posts that don’t meet their guidelines
To only see any of these options rather than all of them at once, click on the tabs at the top of the page.
