Posting to your Google and Facebook business pages is a great way to improve your online reputation. Posting allows you to directly communicate with your local customers, improve your customer experience with timely information, promote your sales, specials, events, news, and offers, and engage with your customers through photos. Creating public posts shows the Google and Facebook platforms, your customers, and your prospective customers that your business is active, operational, and trustworthy.
Example topics for Google and Facebook posts:
upcoming promotions or discounts
holiday business hours
"before and after" photos you're proud of
