Social Media Reposts on GMB with Locl’s Social Media Connector

Reposting your social media posts on Google My Business is just a matter of paraphrasing or copy and paste, but sometimes it can be time-consuming.

Locl’s Social Media Connector helps you with just that – managing your social media posts and saving time drafting your Google Posts from scratch.

This tool connects your five most recent posts on social media accounts to Locl’s post tool and saves them as drafts. You can then edit, schedule, or repost these drafts directly on your Google My Business account within a few clicks.

Everything’s made convenient and time-saving with Locl’s Social Media Connector!
