Check out what we're talking about in the Go-To Guides this month!



Did you know? We're launching a bunch of Go-To Guides that should help answer some of the questions you may have. Learn more about the Go-To Guides here


This first series was aimed at brand new users, as well as regulars who might have needed a refresh on the basics. We covered a bunch of topics, from the benefits of using Google My Business (besides that it’s free and easy!), to everything you need to know about getting started, including the processes of how to create a business page, or request ownership of an existing business location. We also looked at who actually uses Google My Business, from storefront locations to individual practitioners.


Once onboard, there are several ways for a new user to get verified, and we covered them all, including video verification.  


We shared how important it is to keep core business information up to date – so you can thrill customers with your mind-blowing cocktail list, or just tell them your services are available on public holidays.


We also wanted to provide a helping hand when dealing with any problems that pop up while using Google My Business, such as hassles when logging in, and dealing with ownership issues


If you're interested in suggesting new topics, feel free to comment below! 


As always, keep your eye on the Google My Business Community for our regularly updated, bite-size guides for business owners. You can also join the conversation on our social channels by sending us a message on Twitter or Facebook.

Where can I go to contact my rep? I realize this is not the right place, but perhaps you can connect me with the right person. I cannot find anyone to help me but $200 just continues being charged. I have been unable to contact my rep. Somebody help. Thank you!
