In the world of digital marketing, establishing your business’s identity is a pivotal first step. This process is not just about making an impression; it’s about laying a foundation of trust and legitimacy. For new marketing clients at Big Rig Media, navigating the advertiser verification process and submitting the necessary documents to us is essential.
This guide illuminates the pathway through this process, detailing the specific documents required by Google to combat a wide array of online scams and fraudulent activities.
The Importance of Advertiser Verification
Google’s advertiser verification process is more than a formal requirement; it’s a vital safeguard. It’s designed to protect the digital marketplace from various types of deceit, including but not limited to cryptocurrency scams, false advertising, and financial fraud. Being verified means your business is recognized as a credible and trustworthy entity.
Required Documents for Verification
The verification process is divided into two main categories, each requiring specific documentation:
Category 1: Organization Document
This category requires one of the following documents to validate your business:
- IRS Documents:
Such as an EIN confirmation letter (CP 575) or Forms 8871, 8872, or 990, verifying your organization’s tax status
- State-Issued Certificate:
A certificate of business registration or incorporation confirming your business’s legal standing
- SEC Filing:
Your organization’s most recent SEC filing (Form 10-K, 10-Q, or 8-K), showcasing your compliance with financial regulations
- Business Credit Report:
A report from Experian, Equifax, TransUnion, or Dun & Bradstreet reflecting your business’s financial health
Category 2: Personal Identification
This category requires one of the following to confirm the identity of the individual behind the business. Please note, when submitting your identification, ensure that all four corners of the document are visible:
- Driver License:
Both front and back sides
A valid international travel document
- State ID:
Issued by your state of residence, both front and back sides.
- Green Card:
For non-citizens residing in the U.S., both front and back sides.
The Process of Submission
Ensuring the timely submission of one document from each category to Big Rig Media is crucial for a smooth advertiser verification process. The documents should be current, accurate, and clearly legible to avoid any delays.
