Facebook Business Verified Page How To | Social Media Marketing

 

Facebook has implemented a Verified Page system very similar to the Google My Business Local Verified Page system. According to Facebook once you have been verified there is a natural boost in the search feature from Facebook users looking for your business once the profile has been phone verified.

How do I verify my Page?

Some Pages for local businesses may be eligible for a gray verification badge. If you’re an admin and your Page is eligible, you’ll see this option in your Page’s Settings. To verify your Page, you can use your business’ publicly listed phone number or a business document (ex: phone bill). We’ll only use this information to verify your Page.

To verify your Page:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page
  2. From General, click Page Verification
  3. Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started
  4. Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language
  5. Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code
  6. Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue

If you prefer to verify your Page with a business document, follow the steps above and click Verify this Page with documents instead at the bottom left of the window that appears, then upload a picture of an official document showing your business’ name and address.

After we receive your verification code or business document, we’ll review your info to confirm that it matches public records and send you a notification or email about your verification status within a few days. Keep in mind that you’re not required to verify your Page.

floating-share-buttons.com and how to remove it from your Google Analytics

 

Google Analytics data in the last 4 months has been getting spam from “ghost visits” this process will help you filter out the ghosts from your Google Analytics data. There are two parts to this one to prevent future visits from showing up (filters) and one to clean up historical data (segments)

Here is step by step instruction from Carlos Escalera on how to fix it.

Why you really need to fix your hours on your Google Plus Page | Google Maps

 

Ever go to a place only to find out it closed hours ago? The Google Maps app will now warn you before you even leave that it may be closed before you arrive. This works two ways though… people check stuff before making the drive to your store and with this new feature google will be checking even more hence influencing the decision process based on info it gets,

Here is the bottom line …

if your info is wrong and it warns that you are closed when you are open you are losing customers. If it says you are open when you are closed you not only lose customers but they might become angry and possibly write a bad review.
