We had a potential marketing client reach out to us for advice/help with their GBP. It seems that they were with a prior marketing company and the GBP they had was suspended. That company was not able to get it reinstated for them and so they left and went to a new marketing company. That was suppose to "specialize" in GBP. That company created a listing that was very shortly suspended. They would get it reinstated and then it would be suspended again. Then they were told by the first company they would only be able to get control of their GBP is they changed their business name or came to back to them as a client. My question is, has anyone heard of similar situations before of one company holding a listing hostage basically? And what can be done about it? My thinking was that since they are not showing up anywhere on Google Maps, they could create a new GBP for themselves with the name and address that is registered to their states Sec of State, and then work to request access to any outstanding GBP's through Google if necessary. Any advice on this situation and tactics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
