Google Posts To Promote Your Home Business

Hi Folks

Just read a blog on a new Google function that you can use, here's the gist of it.

If you have a Google Plus account you might also be aware of another Google function called Google My Business. This is a tool you can use to boost your website on the internet. Its also very handy if you are promoting in your local area.

However if you have a Google My Business account there is another Google function you might not be aware of that you can use to good effect as well called Google Posts?

What Are Google Posts?

Posts can be up to 1,500 characters long, though Google would prefer you keep it short and sweet and between 150-300 characters. These posts are primarily meant to draw your eye and with a link with a call-to-action that leads to a landing page or website.

Google has opened up this feature to all small business owners. Now that this option is open to you, here’s my question: What are you going to do with it?

Improve your content marketing, to generate more traffic to your website that's what! So get on over to Google and create your own Google Post. Info here

Have a great day folks and be successful.

Robert Allan

PS

remember you must have a Google My Business account.

Hello Carol and glad all is well with you after your Op.
Did you get both eyes done?
My vision isn't 20/20 Carol but I had and still have great distance vision.

Google Posts is a great way to shoot off a small Ad every day.
Try it out anyway and if its not for you, you can still use Google My Business for local marketing.
Rest those weary eyes now coz you don't want to put a strain on them so soon after the Op.
Enjoy your Sunday.

My Op didn't improve my clours simply because I'm colour blind anyway lol.
Have a great Monday.

Hi Sylvia and thank you for your visit and comment.
Another string to your marketing bow.
Keep your posts short and sweet and it doesn't take much time to create and publish.
Perhaps Google Post with a link to a main article would be ideal.
Have a great Thursday.

Thank you, Robert! But G's Business accounts aren't free, are they? What's it cost? Is this feature available on G+?

Mine was Kirill.
Perhaps you are thinking about a different type of account.

Thank you for reading my blog and for your comment.
As far as I know you can't use it in conjunction with your Google Plus account.
Have a good one.

Thanks again, Robert.
By saying I can't use it in conjunction with G+- do you mean it's got to be a new separate account, not for Kirill, but for Kirill's business?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
I think Kirill is getting mixed up with the various Google accounts.
Google My Business is a separate functionality of Google and Google Posts is part of Google My Business and not Google Plus.
Google Plus is a separate account.

So you create a Google My Business account and you get Google Posts.

Hope alls clear now.

Indeed it is a good thing.
Personally I would rather use this new function than Adsense but each to his or her own.
Thank you for your comment Mike and hope you're having a good one.

Thank you for the share, its something interesting to look at. I would not have come to know about it had you not posted it here, so thank you again.
I am still thinking how to incorporate this feature of google business with the blog i am having, if i figure something out , i will surely create a my google business page and subsequently add the post feature.

Cheers
