    I work with a large number service area businesses that are not eligible for google local bulk uploads because they don't serve customers at their location. Many of them have a large number of locations and postcard verifying them all is going to make me want to shoot myself (Anyone ever tried to get sewer repair guys to not throw out the postcard??? arg!). The non postcard methods are ok too but I need a team who can do it fast.

    I'm looking for someone with a team trained in claiming gmb listings so I can get this done fast.

    I have over 1000 google my business listings like this that need to be claimed. Like I said, Google wants us to do them all with postcards, and I know there are other ways to get this done, but without a team, is a huge pain at this scale.

    We're looking for someone who understands local and has a team trained in this stuff.

    Are you able to help us with this? PM me, we need this done quickly.

    A virtual office would work but doing it for 1000 probably wouldent work and it would cost alot.

    these listings already exist and are live on maps but are unclaimed.

    1. Are all the locations under the same brand name?

    2. What is the location spread of these listings (all over US or?)

    3. When you say "claiming", are you saying someone should accept the postcard at the existing location address (since you mentioned the listings already exist) or are you open to changing up the address so it can easier be claimed?

    4. How fast do you need this done?

    careful, there's been a large group of mapmakers doing their best to take these down and it's usually done pretty quick if they have been an active and they built trust. Just saying once you claim, there will a snitch to rat you out.

    I don't know exactly what you trying to pull off, however it sounds shady. Anyways, I got a call from Google Business last week and they wanted me to claim a listing for my company. The guy walked me over the phone and helped me claimed the listing. He was even excited when I told him I have other businesses and that he can help me claim them.

    I think chad (OP) is trying to do this without having to do a phone call or postcard for every single listing

    So I wonder how does OP benefit from claiming businesses that don't belong to him or on behalf of "clients" ? What black hat method did he just discovered here? Is it backlink from my business pages?

    LOL they're either my listings or my clients I'm talking about, plain and simple. All the phone numbers are controlled by me etc.. they dont belong to anyone else

    Even if it was a BH method, don't out the guy.

    I know who he is and am 99% sure it is not a BH thing but we don't expose other BHW members' methods unless they want that.

    Anyway, moved to Hire a Freelancer.

    I believe you. All I am after is to understand what OP is trying to do, regardlessof wether it is white, gray or black hat method. I want in, on the method so I can perhaps use it as well.
