What is Google Business Profile Management?

Formerly known as 'Google My Business' or 'GMB', a Google Business Profile (GBP) is probably the most important listing for your local business.

When you've got a verified profile, you'll appear in Google's local search results and get added to Google Maps. That's not it though - you'll also appear on a whole host of other websites, apps, and directories that utilise Google's database.

What does a profile management service look like, we hear you ask? Google's algorithms remain a closely guarded secret, so no one can truthfully guarantee you a top 3 ranking for 'near me' searches... but our experts follow best practices to hugely boost your chances:

  • We create new profiles and get them verified
  • We regularly optimise your profile's content and settings
  • We make sure your profile data is up to date (and not being changed by competitors!) including address, phone numbers, website, and opening hours
  • We can get you more customer reviews, and reply to those reviews for you
  • We can post updates and new photos on your profile
  • We carry out keyword research to discover what people are typing into Google to find businesses like yours
  • We can assess your competitive landscape, and report the competitors that break Google's guidelines

Is it Right For You?

Most local businesses are eligible for a Google Business Profile, and everyone that has a profile should be optimising it. So, chances are that this service is right for you.

If you aren't sure if you're eligible for a profile, just ask us. We understand the guidelines and stay on top of updates.

It doesn't matter how many locations your business has, either. We manage profiles for a range of business types, ranging from single-location local businesses to nationwide chains.

Tom and Emily at Virens have been working with us now for a few months and we could not be more pleased. They are helpful, friendly and approachable and also very professional. They have come up with some great ideas to help our business grow. We highly recommend them.

I could not recommend Virens highly enough! Tom took the time to understand my business and was extremely helpful in suggesting avenues for its development. His meticulous attention to detail, extensive understanding of the technical side of business, and an eye for website design all came together to boost my business’ profile and profits. A first-class service!

I've been really impressed with Virens. I approached them as my business needed a fresh website and SEO services. Throughout the process, communication has been extremely good. The website they have designed for me is exactly what I wanted and reflects what my business is about.

Where to start? As a self-confessed technophobe, the team really had their work cut out with me. From my first contact with Tom, he completely put me at ease. The team's extensive knowledge and professionalism was obvious from the get-go and they made the whole process run so seamlessly that it was enjoyable from start to finish. I honestly can’t recommend them enough.

Virens created a fantastic new website for us. They refreshed our logo and spent a lot of time making sure the content was right. They were also very patient with us and have been really helpful as we don't have our own IT department and are fairly clueless about a lot of technical things! We're so pleased with the result!

Virens have been brilliant! They've helped me grow my small business over the last 6 months. I've used a few other marketing agencies and specialists in the past and grew more and more frustrated at not seeing any real results... I'm very happy to report this has all changed since working with Virens. If you're looking for help with a website, Google, Facebook, etc I can highly recommend their services.

Virens have just recently assisted me in two businesses, promoting both business pages on Google search and Facebook making them more visible and accessible for people to find and hopefully more customers. I found Virens very efficient and easy to communicate with, explaining things clearly. I would highly recommend Virens.

Amazing customer service alert!! This was a job I had been putting off for quite a while as I wasn’t sure where to start. Tom really listened to my requirements, had some brilliant suggestions of his own and completed the task within 24 hours! My friends and I are so pleased with the resulting logo and would highly recommend contacting the team!

I would recommend Virens to anyone who wants to launch or grow their business. They have bought a huge amount of expertise in brand building, website construction, social media profile building and all the signage and menus we need for our shop. They have done all this with a care for us and our business and a real want for us to succeed.

The Virens team have really helped us in our digital marketing efforts. We've reviewed our approach to SEO, talked through strategy, completed new keyword research, improved our website, updated our Google business profile, and more. They clearly have a wealth of experience in their field and their attention to detail has been fantastic. It's been a pleasure working with them. I would recommend them to any small/medium business that wants to really get a marketing edge.

This company I would highly recommend to all. Tom literally saved my life, I was clutching at straws and having so much to juggle when starting the business up and not being all that "tech savvy" his help was outstanding and everything I needed to give us that push a business requires on making.
