The Step-By-Step Guide to Video Verification
1. Create High-Quality Video Content:
Start by crafting compelling video content that truly represents your business. Showcase your services, products, happy customers, or the heart and soul of your operation.
Plan your video. In one continuous recording, include:
Your current location. To show your Google Maps location, capture outside signs. Examples include your street’s name, nearby businesses, or the area around your business.
Business or equipment. To show that your business is at this Google Maps location, capture your operations. Examples include stock for sale, branded equipment, marketing materials, and tools you use to serve your customers.
Proof of management. To show that you’re authorized to represent your business, capture your access to employee-only items or areas. Examples include a cash register, kitchen, storage room, or non-sensitive business documents. You can also use your keys to open your facility.
2. Sign in to Your Google Business Profile:
If you already have a GMB account, log in. If not, create one
3. Tap Get verified and then Capture video.
Tap Start recording.
Record your video.
Tap Stop recording and then Upload video.
4. Request Verification:
After uploading, you might need to request verification. This involves Google's meticulous review to ensure your content meets their standards. Patience is key here, as this process may take some time.
Remember, the video verification process may vary by region a, and Google may update its policies and features.
