MY REVIEW ON GOOGLE MY BUSINESS ESPECIALLY IN KENYA.
It will be awesome to see you businness on the first page of google and theres a way to do that, How you ask? Its through Google my business which is also known as GMB.
WHAT IS GMB?
Google my business is an awesome tool that helps your business interact with your target audience.with a GMB account,your business profile lets easily connect with customers across Google search and google maps.it awesome cause by through this you can find out how many people are connecting with you on google.
HOW TO SETUP A GMB ACCOUNT.

4. Enter the address of the business location.
5.specify service areas.
6.Choose your business category.
7.Add a contact phone number and website URL.
8.Complete your Google My Business verification.
MY ONLY ISSUE.
My only issue is stage 8. and on that stage through my research and understanding there are three ways to get a verification code which is by.
1. postcard verification.
2. phone verification.
3. Email verification
I tried verify my GMB acccount but the only way to get verified is through postcard verification. Which to me feels so analogue. I love would to get my verification code through phone and Email but it seems they dont give me that option.
I have seen stories through online talking about applying postcard verifcation in which not all people get their postcards some it has taken them even weeks or even months to get their verification.
It would be awesome if Google gave us an option of phone and email verifiction.which will be more simple and a bettrer way to know if someone is verified or not. Especially a kenyan like me.
