Free workshops in Asheville: How to Maximize Your Business Presence on Google

One thing that caught my attention about these workshops is that they will help you verify your Google business account without a postcard or phone call (as someone with a PO Box, this was something I definitely could have used some help with).

Here are the details from the Explore Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau website:

LIVE WORKSHOPS: How to Maximize Your Business Presence on Google (Using Free Online Tools)—This event in our two-part education initiative will be held Tuesday, November 13 in the Explore Asheville Boardroom at 27 College Place, and it will be presented at two times – 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. At this in-person workshop, representatives from Miles Partnership will provide tactical training and how-to guide take-aways for using Google My Business. Topics covered will include:

• Claiming and managing your account
• Obtaining and responding to reviews
• Tips to improve your photography
• Adding 360 images & video
• Removing photos from your listing
• Leveraging Local Guides
• Getting the most from Posts
• Unique opportunities by business type
• How-to guide take-away documents

During this event we will also be providing on-site instant verification of Google My Business accounts. If your business isn’t verified, or you’ve lost access to your business listing, come to the workshop and we can help you get verified instantly, without a postcard or a phone call. You’ll need to bring a one or more of the following documents: utility bill(s), tax letter(s) or business registration certificate(s) to participate in instant verification. The documents must show the business name, address, and category (if possible). You will also need the login to the Google account for your business. If you do not have an account, visit
