Manage your Google My Business account with Vtiger Social

As promised, we’re back with more information about Vtiger Social! Previously, we introduced[1] you to the Social module and discussed its Facebook aspect[2].

In this post, we discuss how to use Google My Business from the Social module.

Google My Business or GMB is a tool that helps businesses manage their online presence across Google platforms, including Search and Maps.

Through Vtiger CRM’s Social module, you can log in to your GMB account to create and publish content, manage reviews, and answer users’ questions.

Furthermore, you can configure multiple GMB accounts on Social depending on your business location. For example, Vtiger CRM could have two GMB accounts as the company is located in two different regions.

Let us look at some benefits of using Vtiger Social with support for multiple channels.

  • It’s a one-stop destination for all your social media posts, interactions, and updates.
  • You can post content on different social platforms simultaneously.
  • You don’t have to use a separate tool to create and schedule social media content.
  • It’s a time saver as you can manage your tasks and other CRM records along with your social media platforms.

We’re now ready to dive into the features of Vitger Social!
