Our team will verify and claim your online Google listing, updating essential information such as your address, phone number, website, hours of operation, and more. Then, our experienced team of marketing strategists will begin regularly promoting your business through Google My Business Posts. They’ll reach out to you on a monthly basis to review your content strategy, then start drafting four posts for the month.

Why do you need to know my Gmail account?
We need to verify your Gmail account in order to claim and monitor the listing.
Can service area businesses be claimed?
Not through this service. We can only claim GMB listings for businesses who have a storefront. If your business is home-based, as long as there is a sign on the property and customers go to that location for goods and/or services and the address can be publicly displayed on the listing, Google will accept this as a storefront.
What if Google My Business is already claimed?
Unfortunately, this service is not available to businesses with an already claimed Google My Business listing. In order to process this service, the Google My Business listings must all be claimable. We cannot process Transfer of Ownerships. To check the state of your listing, go to maps.google.com and search for your business. If you can see a ‘Is this business yours?’ link, the listing is good to go! If all you see is ‘Suggest an Edit’, the listing is already owned by someone.
