GBP Management is a subscription-based product that enables users to manage their Google Business Profiles from the Whitespark Local Platform.
Provided you have an active GBP Management subscription and an available slot, you can enable GBP Management for a location in just 2 easy steps.
Step 1: Import locations
If you've already imported your location from Google, you can jump to the next step.
If you don't have a Google account connected to your Whitespark account, click the Connect a Google account button and follow the steps. Once the applicable Google account has been connected, you can select it to see a list of locations available for import.
Select the location(s) you wish to import and click the Import button to complete this step.
Step 2: Turn on GBP Management
GBP Management must be enabled for locations one at a time. Complete the steps below for each location you wish to enable GBP Management for.
From the locations screen, find the location you wish to enable GBP Management for.
To the right of the location name and address, you'll see an "OFF" label (see above), denoting that GBP Management is currently turned OFF for the location. Click the OFF label to turn on GBP Management. You'll be presented with a confirmation dialog (see below).
And that's it! These locations now have GBP Management turned on!
