How do I link Google My Business, Facebook and Foursquare to the Shore listings?

Linked Accounts allow you to sync Google My Business, Facebook, and Foursquare accounts with Shore to enable updates on these pages through the Shore platform. Please see instructions below.

 

Google My Business:

 

In order to link Google My Business to Shore, your business must first be verified with Google directly either by postcard or phone call. If you don´t have a Google Account yet, go here: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?hl=en . If you already have a Google Account and would like to create Google My Business or just need to verify, go here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/7107242?hl=en.

 

After you receive your verification postcard, or if you have previously verified your business, please follow the instructions below to link your Google My Business account with Shore.

 

  1. Once you are logged into your Shore calendar, go to “Listings"
  2. Choose again “Listings" and click on “Overview”.
  3. Click "Link with Google My Business".
  4. Follow the prompt to sign into your Google account.
  5. After you are logged in, you will be asked to accept a few conditions that you must allow.
  6. Match Shore to your verified Google My Business location by selecting the location associated with your account with a green check mark.
  7. Click "Continue" in the bottom right corner.
  8. Update your cover photo and profile picture and click "Complete." If you would like to keep your photos as they currently are, then you can simply click "Complete" and disregard this step.

Hint: Make sure the email address you enter is the one that was used to verify your Google My Business account on Google.



Facebook:

 

An administrator of your Facebook business page has to link the Facebook page so it can be managed and updated through Shore.

 

  1. Once you are logged into your Shore calendar, go to "Listings"

Hint: Please note that these permissions are just needed because we need to have the approval of the administrator on the business page. This will not affect your personal Facebook page in any way. We will only be linked to your Business Page.
