    Google's new posts - scheduling automated posting tool?

    How to schedule posts?

    I manage many Google My Business pages and want to schedule posts on the new posts that have been added recently... http://prntscr.com/fq2nwk

    I use Hootsuite, and they say they are not offering posting to the new posts in Google My Business

    I asked Buffer, and they said they are looking into it.

    Anyone know a service that is available to schedule posts ahead of time to on different days on multiple GMB pages?

    Re: Google's new posts - scheduling automated posting tool?

    I just wanted to make it clear that "Google Posts" is different than Google+ posts that somewhat integrate with GMB.

    This might be helpful:
    Google: Google Posts | Search Engine Land
    Google Posts now live for all Google My Business users

    I know buffer lets you schedule Google+ posts for different GMB pages if you have the paid version.

    "Google Posts" is very new so like you said Buffer may look into it...but I am doubting Google will allow the integration for some time. That is, if they even keep it around for long.

    It seems it took years for Google to allow third party schedulers like Buffer to work with Google+.

    There is currently no way to schedule Google posts - not even from within the Google My Business dashboard.

    Those tools only work with Google Plus, not Google Posts (which is brand new).

    Correct. You mentioned Google+ originally.

    I keep seeing people talk about this but they don't mention how you can't use any automation tools.

    I mean it's fine if you have a local one person shop, but when you manage multiple accounts for many clients, it is difficult.

    You can with Google plus, but it gets so little traction. I was posting there hoping it would be incorporated here. Why have two different ones?

    Why not combine both?

    It's like Google wants to let Google + "die on the vine, " but they won't combine the two.

    Most posting apps provide a way to automate.

    Re: Google's new posts - scheduling automated posting tool?

    I'm still searching for this, it doesn't make sense!! And lots of social media managers are still talking about G+ as if it matters...

    Google Business Posts drive a LOT of value for the small businesses I work with and I would love to find ANY solution but they don't seem to have opened an API for any of the managers to work with yet.

    Will keep following this thread and thanks for the comments!

    How are you measuring the value of Google My Business Posts? I am doing them for a client on a weekly basis but have not noticed any significant increases...
