How do I connect my Google My Business profile?

In order to start seeing and responding to reviews from Google My Business in Perch, you need to have a verified business connected to your Google account.

For Mobile:
If you are new to Google My Business, the easiest way to get started is to download the free mobile app from the
Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

When you’re all set up, sign in with the Google account you'd like to use to manage your business. If you’ve added a business before, tap the menu icon, then the name of your business to reveal all listings in your account. If you’ve not added a business previously, scroll to the bottom of the page and choose + Create new business.

For Desktop:
If you are new to Google My Business, then head to the Google My Business website on desktop, and click the link to Start Now. Sign in to your Google account, or create a new account if you don’t already use the service.

Note: When adding your business, you may see that “Someone else has already verified this listing.” If you're the owner of the business, click Request ownership and follow the on screen directions to claim your business. Learn more on how to request ownership here.

You'll see the option to confirm that you're authorized to manage the business. If you are, check the box, then click Continue. If you aren’t authorized to manage the business, find the person in your organization who is, then work with them to sign up.

Once you added your business information and clicked Continue, you’ll have the option to verify. See the post ways to get verified for next steps.
