Adding multiple business locations (to a multi-location business) at once is easy. Just follow the instructions below.
1) First, ensure that your account's profile limit can accommodate the number of locations that you are trying to upload. Failure to do so will result in a failed upload.
3) If you haven't already: in the dashboard, click Add a Business and create a new profile with your desired business/company name. With the new profile active, click Dashboard > Funnel > Links > Review Profile > Add Profiles. This will convert the profile to a multi-profile funnel.
Make sure that you will be able to attend to the upload process uninterrupted. When uploading several hundred locations, this can take 20 minutes or more as you must confirm listings for each location in succession.
4) After completing step 3, click Upload CSV/XLSX.
The following pop-up will appear:
From here, you'll have a couple of options.
