How To Verify Your Google Listing and Take Control

Managing Your Own Google Business Listing

Did you know that every business can control their Google listing, and it’s completely free? Unfortunately, there is a misinformation campaign by unscrupulous fidgital barking businesses (that’s my term for phony digital marketing companies). If you were a victim to one of these scams, don’t fret, we can get you on the right track!

Every business should have control over their Google business listing. This not only can improve your overall business presence online, but can impact your SEO strategy, as it is the direct contact between you and the customer online. The Google My Business listing is what users see on Google Maps or on Google Search, whenever they search for a business. You have access to add photos, change hours and phone numbers, adjust vacation days… You can even post new information about your business, all free, and included with the use of Google My Business (which is also free).

There are many ways to verify your business, most of the time people do it via a card in the mail, or with a phone call. However, if your existing listing is controlled by someone else and you can’t get in touch with them, or they simply have neglected to give you access, we can help restore your account quickly! If you have a new business, or have never verified your listing, we can do this for you in a few minutes! No need to find an SEO company that will charge you for this, we do not charge to get you control over your Google listing. All it takes is a visit to your business, or you stopping by our offices, and we can give you instant access! No cards to mail, and no delays, and best of all, no charge!

The reason we can do this is that we were certified by Google years ago as a Google Trusted Verifier Agency. This enables us to help businesses get access to their listing, without any fees, or any commitments. If your business is in Dover, or Portsmouth, NH, we can set up an appointment and verify your business. Otherwise, if you have documents proving you own the business, and are registered with the state of New Hampshire, we can register your business right at our company headquarters! Just set up an appointment, and we can do this free of charge, with no obligation, or pushy sales.

While we do offer digital marketing services, including SEO and website design, we believe business owners should always have access. We show you how to control your listing, and even if you hire an agency like ours, we help you set individual users with management access, while you still retain full control over your Google listing. 

We do this to empower the local business community in NH, MA, and ME. Though we serve customers nationwide with all of our other services, this specific service is only available to local customers within a reasonable distance from our offices in Dover, NH. We offer Google Business verification for companies as far away as Portland, Maine, and Boston, Massachusetts.

If you would like to instantly verify your business, we are hosting workshops at our offices at 42 Dover Point Rd, Unit M, Dover, NH 03820 every Wednesday, starting on the last day of July, and continuing throughout the rest of August, 2019. Stop by, get verified, and learn how we can help Make it Happen for your business!
