Social media for businesses – a link post

Google recently started pestering us to publish a post on VC’s listing in Google “My Business”. This is a relatively new feature of “My Business”, and I wasn’t sure what to do with it.

Is it a blog? is it social media? is it SEO?

I’d say the new posting feature is all three, and that makes it hard find the best way to use it. So I solved the problem the same way I solve any other new problem: I went looking for inspiration. I googled for topics like “social media posts for businesses”.

“My Business” isn’t technically social media, but it is close enough that I knew that posts on social media for businesses would  inspire ideas.

I have decided that for now I will repost excepts of blog posts and newsletters on “My Business”, but I also found about a hundred other ideas.

Here are seven posts that I found useful and plan to revisit when I need more ideas about how to promote .
