GrowthEngine Media is a Toronto-based digital marketing agency that helps businesses of all sizes optimize their Google My Business listings.
Google My Business (GMB) is the first point of contact many customers will have with your brand. This makes it a critical digital marketing tool – optimizing your listing for maximum visibility can lead to increased website traffic and new leads. However, Google My Business optimization isn’t possible until your listing has been claimed and verified.
If you don’t already have a Google My Business account, creating one is the first step in the ‘claim and verify’ process. Your GMB account is free to set up and will provide access to the dashboard where we will manage and optimize your listing.
A Google ‘Business Profile’ is the official name of a My Business listing. It can exist with or without a Google My Business account, but you can’t claim it as your own until your account is active. Claiming your profile will allow us to manage and optimize the information that displays on your listing.
Simply creating a Google My Business account will not automatically connect it to your Business Profile. To do that, you’ll have to submit a claim request to Google and verify yourself as the business owner. The most common method for doing this is by submitting a verification code that Google sends via traditional mail. However, in some cases the code may be available via text, phone, or email.
