Google has made managing multiple locations easy using their location management system.
The system allows you to see all the locations your business has listed with Google under one log-in. The first step is to create a GMB profile and add all your unique business locations into the system. Be sure to fill out all the details on each business’s Google My Business profile with as many details as possible about each unique business location.
You can do this individually by selecting each business and then filling in as much information as possible about everything from the hours of operation to the ‘about the business’ section.
