Currently Google does not offer the option to schedule Google My Business posts in advance, unfortunately. However there are a number of 3rd party tools you can use to do this. For instance:

I am currently using OneUp which I have been using for over 12 months now. It is a paid tool, however I 100% get my worth from it as I am managing many of my clients Google My Business listings. Plus I also use it to schedule some of my own social media posts. I am really happy with the tool, especially because they are currently improving and developing it.

I am not too sure how the other tools work, but here is how you can schedule a Google My Business post with OneUp:

Time needed: 10 minutes.

  1. Connect your Google My Business account


    When you login to your account, you will firstly want to connect your Google My Business account. Simply follow the prompts to do this.

  2. Create a category


    I find it’s easiest to keep my account organised with categories, seeing as I manage a number of different businesses. To do this, simply go to the Category tab and add a new category.

  3. Create your Google My Business post


    Now you’re ready to schedule in your post! Simply go to the Schedule Post tab where you’ll pick your Category and then account.

    Next up, add your post description (don’t forget you can add emojis and symbols to really make it pop!), add image (you can even choose to design it through Canva) and add your CTA button and link (don’t forget to add a tracking link).

    You can also opt to create an Event post alongside adding your image to your GMB gallery.
