Get started with Small Business Advisors

You can have a one-on-one business product consultation with Small Business Advisors to help your business succeed. Small businesses can schedule a 50-minute video call with a specially-trained Google Advisor who can:

  • Provide guidance directly from Google.
  • Tailor recommendations based on your specific business needs.
  • Help you learn Google products such as Business Profile, Ads, and Analytics. 

Tip: This service doesn't include troubleshooting or Business Profile manual verification.


Important: This service is unavailable for large businesses, marketing or SEO agencies, or customers with suspended Google Accounts. To use the program, you need a Google Account.

Small Business Advisors help small businesses that want to enhance their understanding of Google products and tools. We can guide you through product setup, answer specific questions, and help out in various ways in a focused, one-on-one setting.

Whether you're well-established or brand new, appointments are available to small businesses located and operated in the United States. Our Small Business Advisors specialize in direct communication with small business owners who are usually in charge of managing both their business and their online presence. Advisors are particularly helpful when:

  • You’ve never used Google products for your business.
  • You want to increase your understanding of Google products and tools.
  • You feel overwhelmed or uncertain about your business’s online presence.
  • You don’t have an online marketing specialist or outside marketing agency.

If you have a Google Ads account manager, they're better suited to help you with Google Ads.

How Small Business Advisors works

Our goal is to help you grow your business. We can help you set up Google products, share best practices for product use, and provide tailored answers to questions about your business's online presence. Small Business Advisors take a holistic approach toward digital guidance, whereas teams like Google Support are focused more on technical issues, like account lockouts.

During your video call, your Advisor gives you customized recommendations based on your goals, industry, business model, and needs. Advisors can also answer any questions to help you better understand Google products and how they can help your business succeed.

Your Advisor can help you with:

  • Google Business Profile
  • Google Ads
  • Google Merchant Center
  • Google Workspace
  • Google Domains
  • Google Analytics
  • YouTube
  • Any other Google product that supports small businesses
