Visit St Pete/Clearwater is happy to announce that we have embarked on an initiative to improve our market’s visibility and engagement in Google’s search and travel exploration products. Central to these Google products are the individual listings for each business.

Join Visit St. Pete/Clearwater and Miles Partnership for a two-hour in-person workshop intended for any interested tourism-related business operators and stakeholders. The Google Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) team from Miles Partnership will help you expand your exposure within Google's products, and improve your engagement and conversion with your customers.

During this two-hour workshop topics will include:

  • Claiming and managing your account
  • Obtaining and responding to reviews
  • Tips to improve your photography
  • Adding 360 images and 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

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 one or more of the following documents: utility bill, tax letter or business registration certificate 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 https://accounts.google.com/SignUp 

This workshop is the second piece of a two-part education initiative for our partners on how you can expand your exposure within Google's products and improve your engagement and conversion with your customers. Please also mark your calendar to attend the first part of this education initiative, which is a one-hour webinar at 2 p.m. on Jan. 29.
