READ THIS before you apply to verify your business

A few months ago we paused the Google Business Profile verification program after hitting our target.

I'm happy to announce that we're resuming the GBP verification program to continue to help businesses in Africa grow their business online.

Types of businesses we now verify

With this new cycle, comes a few changes to our process.

Going forward we are only able to verify businesses in Africa that fall within the following categories;

  • Restaurants & Eateries
  • Hair, Skin & Beauty Salons
  • Hardware and electronic stores
  • Tours & Travels sectors
  • Agribusiness
  • Recreational facilities e.g Spas, gym, swimming pool
  • Exporters of products
  • Photography
  • Fashion
  • Event planning
  • Bakery

Applying for verification

If your business falls within the categories listed above and you proceed to fill out the verification form please note the following:

  1. Read the instruction provided clearly & 
  2. Provide all the requested documents and information as instructed on the verification form.

Failure to do this will result in your profile not being verified.

I highly recommend you finish reading this post before proceeding to begin the verification process.

Once you are done, click to -> Begin Verification

How to verify your Google business profile

Can you verify business outside the categories listed above?

Yes we can!

However this will no longer fall under the free GBP verification program.

If your business falls outside the categories listed above and you would like us to assist with the verification of your business profile, click here to send us an email requesting support.

Managing your business on Google.

There have been a lot of changes to the GBP platform, which has affected how you access and manage your Business profile.

Previously you were able to manage it through the GBP App but with the recent update from Google, you can now ONLY manage your business profile from Google search or maps directly.

This and so other updates have made it difficult for most business owners to use their business profiles. 

To solve this problem we've created a program that teaches you how to manage your Business profile directly from Google search so you can;

  • Increase visibility for your business online and 
  • Attract more customers
