Is your business hidden online from the patients who need your services?
Still waiting for your GMB postcard?
Your postcard hasn't arrived - or you don't know how to start the verification process.
And you're missing out on new patients finding you because your Google My Business listing is not verified.
The good news? If it's been 14 days since you last requested a postcard, you're eligible to request alternative verification.
The other good news? If you're unsure how to claim your GMB profile you're in good hands. GMB is one of our areas of expertise and we can help.
GMB Verification Help
- A GMB Specialist will contact Google on behalf of your business to help get you verified faster.
I engaged Maz to help me communicate with Google to get the verification code I was having trouble getting, and then a once-off GMB optimisation of my page. She was wonderful, and in a very short time had transformed my GMB page with content, photos, and all the bells and whistles needed to raise our profile. I am very glad I engaged her services and thoroughly recommend you do the same.
Google My Business Verification - The Basics
Once you complete the verification process your postcard should arrive in 6 days (although it usually takes 2-3 weeks). Each time you request a new postcard, the one you requested previously becomes obsolete.
This is the magic number of days you must wait before GMB Support will help you with an alternative verification method.
Don't update your profile
Once you've requested a postcard, don't be tempted to make any more edits to your profile. Making edits may void the postcard that is already on its way.
Google My Business Verification
When your Google My Business profile is unverified, your practice has much less visibility in Google and you don’t have the ability to manage your Google reviews. As a result, you are likely to be losing patients to your competitors.
If you're unsure how to claim your GMB listing, we can take care of that for you. It's typically a 3 week process.
If you've already claimed your listing, once it’s been 14 days since you requested a verification postcard you are eligible to request alternative verification. That’s where we can help.
Our verification service helps eliminate frustration and saves you time. We know the exact evidence Google needs to verify your profile and we’ll take care of communicating this to their support team. In most cases, we can get your profile verified within a matter of days.
The 3 most common reasons:
- Postal delays
- Went to the wrong address
- It's sitting in someone's pile of mail
If you're a well established business, you may be lucky enough to be offered the option to verify by phone or email.
If these options do not appear when you set up your listing, you will have to wait for the postcard.
Yes, you sure can. Visit https://support.google.com/business/gethelp to get started.
We work with you to gather adequate evidence to prove that your business is where you say it is.
We also collate other information to support your request for alternative verification.
GMB Support may also email us for further clarification once they have received our request.
The benefit of outsourcing this is you don't have to waste time gathering the information (apart from sending us photos and sharing your contact info).
We take care of the rest for one low fee.
