    New client but GMB listings suspended

    Hi All

    A new prospective client (electrician) contacted me to help him out with his local visibility in the beautiful city of London.
    After a few conversations, he told me he had three GMB listings set up under different names in different areas to cover as much of the city as possible. He only has 1 legitimate business location. All three GMB listings have been suspended in the last few weeks (i guess that's why he got in touch with me). This looks like a hard suspension because I can't even find his listings in Google maps.

    The question is, should i take him on as a client?

    If he has a legit location then I don't see any reason not to take him on as a client. If it was me working with him my only stipulation would be that moving forward we're going to use Google's best practices and follow the guidelines.

    Start by submitting a reinstatement request. Here's the form Google My Business local business reinstatement request - Google My Business Help

    If everything checks out then that should be all that you need to do.
