Steps to Add a Menu on Your Google My Business Page
Here’s how to do that:
If you are new to Google My Business, you’ll need to create and claim your account. Once you have access to your page, you’re ready to get started.
Step 1: Log in to your restaurant’s account on the Google My Business page.
Step 2: Click the “Info” button on the left-hand side of the page. This will bring up a panel with editable fields.
Step 3: You’ll see a space called “Menu link” where you can link to your restaurant’s online menu. It is advisable to include the URL because it is an excellent inbound marketing strategy for attracting customers to your business.
Step 4: Next, in your GMB page, we’ll add specific menu items. You may get to it either by clicking the “Menu” button in the same panel where you inserted your menu URL or by clicking the “Menu” button on the left-hand side of the page.
Step 5: Once you’re in the “Menu” section, you’ll see the option to “Add menu Section.” This is where you may organize your menu items into sections like appetizers, combos, dinner, favorites, and so on. Include as many sections as you require.
Step 6: After you’ve completed the sections of your menu, you can then start adding individual items to it. Another benefit of GMB is the ability to submit item names, descriptions, and images in order to attract interested customers.
That’s it and you’re done!
