What is happening?
Beginning on November 1st, 2021, Marketing Services will be retiring the Google My Business: 4x Month offering. Partners wishing to order GMB social posts can instead do so through the new Google My Business Optimization add-on Additional Google My Business Post: 1x Week or existing Social Posts: 1x Week.
How does it impact you?
Leading up to November 1st, 2021, any packages that include the Google My Business 4x Month service will be archived and removed from your clients’ store. Please contact your Vendasta sales representative if you are unsure how to create a new package that features an alternative GMB solution.
Up to November 1st, 2021, any clients with Google My Business Posts: 4x Month services active will continue to receive those services. We simply ask that you think about transitioning them to an alternative service such as Google My Business Optimization or Social Posts: 1x Week.
What are the alternative solutions?
We recommend the following services available in the Marketplace:
- Social Posts: 1x Week
- Google My Business posts purchased through this service will be written by our creative writers. The focus of these posts will be to create engaging content for your social channels. All posts will be scheduled and sent for approval via Social Marketing.
- Google My Business Optimization + Additional Monthly GMB Posts
- Google My Business posts purchased through this service will be focused more on SEO, as written by our Listings Specialists. These posts will not be scheduled through Social Marketing, nor will they go through an approval process.
- Google Ads: Quick Launch
- This budget-friendly alternative to the Automated Search Ads add-on, allows you to launch your campaign in as little as 2 business days without worrying about any fees associated with campaign setup, call tracking, or a landing page.
