50 smart google business profile post ideas

What to post on your Google Business profile?

You’ve probably already noticed that posting on Google Business Profile can attract new customers and even helps rank in local search. The majority of small businesses doesn’t know what to post other than crafting boring sales pitches.

 

Great Google Business Profile post ideas are rare and you can just use the following ideas to stand out from the competition so easily!

Don’t worry, this guide will help you create a content factory so that you’ll never run out of Google Business Profile post ideas again. 

The Goal

Before you start publishing on Google Business Profile, you will need to understand its nature. 

 

Customers perceive Google Business Profile posts best practices as additional information to the actual GBP. Remember, your primary goal is to build trust and credibility

 

Selling can be a part of it, though it shouldn’t be the overall objective. It’s basically a branding channel for local businesses

 

Customers don’t only want to see offers and sales pitches, they also want to see what you’re up to and whether you’re an active business. 

 

That is where creative GBP posts come to play. Try to make your potential customers excited about your business. 

 

From my experience, the best brands don’t just sell. They always focus on adding some value to their content. Try to direct your focus from personal gain to serving others. This mindset can have an incredible impact on the results.

 

As soon as I started helping people online becoming better marketers and stopped trying to focus on self-growth, my inbox was flooded with inquiries including hot leads.

What is valuable Google Business Profile Post content?

Your customers decide what’s beneficial to them and what isn’t. The only way to figure that out is through testing various content strategies continuously. 

 

Marketing on GBP is not just a monologue, it’s always a conversation. Just because you don’t see a direct response doesn’t mean there is no response at all. 

 

You’re still talking to someone whose response could be a call, a newsletter signup, a recommendation to a friend, or even becoming a new customer. 

Pro tip: People who read your posts are either already familiar with your business or aware of their problems. There is no need to create top-of-funnel content. You want to create content that converts in the first place.
