Google Maps & Google Places
Do YOU own a business that services local clients in a specific region? Maybe you own a franchise, or you’re part of a larger chain and you’re interested in getting more business in your location. Whatever the reason, if you own a local business, you MUST be on Google Places or you simply will not get found and this is guaranteed to cost your business money!
A little background…When people search for services these days such as plumbers, electricians, mechanics, beauty salons, restaurants and so on they will almost always type in their postcode or the phrase “near me” after the product or service they are searching for. Some Internet searches are performed directly from Google or Yahoo Maps and if you business hasn’t claimed its Free Google listing, you will be most certainly missing out on a massive amount of targeted user traffic.
Google has many simple, cost-effective ways of promoting your business with Google Places being just one. With Google places you can list your address, phone number, and other details to allow your clients to be informed about your business and what products or services you have to offer and then contact you all within a matter of moments.
It is not as it used to be: Potential customers don’t just reach for the Yellow Pages anymore – They simply pull out their mobile phone or tablet device or hop on their laptop or desktop and location-based searches are topping the charts for Internet traffic.
