It has never been easier to stay in touch with your customers - or those who are about to become customers. Every month, an infinite number of searches are made on Google when it comes to opening hours, current offers and location to businesses, institutions and shops. This is more about facts than storytelling content to convince potential customers - because users are actively searching for your business or similar to yours. So what are the news, offers and events of your company that you want to communicate to potential and existing customers during their search? Through posts in this network, you can get in touch with customers and create a good customer experience. As you can see, integrating your Google Business profile into your social media strategy makes perfect sense - regardless of the type and industry of your business.

How to publish news on Google Business with facelift?

In the Publisher, you have the ability to create and publish posts about what's new, offers and events. Your opening hours have changed? Let all searchers on Google know in your news. Draw attention to your company's current offers and announce time-limited vouchers, discounts or promotions. An inserted coupon code allows you to track your offer and its performance. You can also use the opportunity to announce upcoming events - be it an open day, a trade fair or a new opening.


In the post creation process, select Google Business Profiles and choose between the different formats.

Now add your text and a suitable image. Depending on the format of your post, individual parameters can be inserted during the creation process. For offers, you can enter your voucher code and a start and end date for the promotion period. For events, remember to enter a start and end date. You determine what an optional call-to-action should look like by selecting the button during creation. And last but not least, select one or more Google Business profiles on which you want to publish.
