Updating your holiday hours on Google? Easy as pumpkin pie.

Heather Mohorn, owner of Momo’s Tree House, adds special hours on Google to let last-minute shoppers know when they’re open. “The holiday hours feature makes it easy to communicate [changes in hours] to customers,” she says “It reduces the number of phone calls we receive to ask whether we’re open, which is nice when we’re busy wrapping those last-minute gifts on Christmas Eve.”

 

With Google My Business, you can update your business info on Google for free and ensure that your phone number, address, and hours of operation are correct so customers can find you this season (and beyond).

 

 

To help you make the most of the season, we put together a holiday workshop filled with tips for using the web to connect with shoppers. Preview the section on updating your holiday hours above, or watch the entire workshop at gybo.com/livestream.

 

For a list of step-by-step instructions on how to update your hours on Google My Business, visit the help center.

 

We hope this is one easy thing you can check off that holiday to-do list.

 

Cheers,

Marissa

I'm having a 'mare trying to add special hours for 'overlapping' days. Eg. I have a business open til 3am Xmas eve (so technically 3am Xmas day) which means I can't set Dec 25th as 'closed'. How do I get round this?

Hi @Adie N

 

So your Christmas day hours will be 2 sets.

 

00:00 - 03:00 Open

03:00 - 00:00 Closed

Hi @Adie N

 

Can you remove all those links from your message, or I'll have to archive for self promotion.

 

Thanks
