1. You can post an event or promotions by going to your My Business profile. To get to your my business profile, click on My Business on the top navigation menu. This will open a dropdown. Click View Profile:
2. Once there, scroll down to the Events & Promotions section of the profile (see image below). Click on "+Add".
3. Once you click on “+ Add”, a popup will appear as seen in the image below. Here you will be able to add a title, description and a logo, as well as where and when the event will be held, and whether the event or promotion is a B2B or B2C event. You will only be given the choice to add a time of the event if the event starts and ends on the same day. If they start and end on different days then this option will be hidden.
The Title of your event or promotion should be clear and not too long.
