Guidelines for representing your business on Google

As a business owner client contact, support and service are priority. Google Maps is the best way to reach your customer base. This can be challenging with Google’s requirements for verification always changing. Our Las Vegas and New York marketing teams have complied some suggestions on applying Google’s standards to verify your virtual office. If you can’t find an answer to your question, open a live discussion with one of our support members on our question board. Verifying your virtual office through Google Maps can be difficult, but using BSSI’s pointers will lead you to success.

First, you want to make sure that your company website has the same availability as BSSI virtual offices.  “If your business rents a temporary, “virtual” office at a different address from your primary business, do not create a page for that location unless it is staffed during your normal business hours.” BSSI is available Monday-Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm, with the exception of federal holidays, when listing your company’s availability on your website it to reflect BSSI’s business hours, if it varies it can result in a denial. “In order to qualify…a business must make in-person contact with customer during stated business hours”

Secondly, “Make sure the address is accurate and precise”. Through BSSI’s virtual offices you are provided your Commercial Business Address for mail servicing. Your company website needs to list BSSI personally assigned address. Remember to include cardinal direction, suite and/or building number in this address.


In addition

“In order to qualify…a business must make in-person contact with customer during stated business hours” Our offices staff live receptionists Monday- Friday 9:00am-5:00pm to assist walk-in customers for your company. Las Vegas additionally offers a private office and a conference room available for companies to meet with clients, privately and confidentially.

Finally

“Use a local number instead of central, call center helpline number whenever possible”. This allows the local accessibility that Google wants your business to provide customers. BSSI offers phone servicing for whatever your business may need. From call forwarding to message taking to live connecting your client. All phone packages include an assigned private local telephone number. Also, unlimited long distance calls are provided with the live answering.

If you are currently in the process of verifying your virtual office and are still having issues, you can reach out to BSSI to set up a personal consultation. One of our marketing associates will gladly troubleshoot with you.
