Google Local Listings

Why does your business need one?

If you don’t currently have a Google Local listing for your business, you could be losing potential customers who are searching for what you sell online. Let’s say that someone does a search for “Mexican food” on Google. Google Places then brings back a list of Mexican food restaurants in the searcher’s local area, along with a map showing the locations of the restaurants. Also listed are phone numbers for the businesses, customer reviews, brief descriptions of the businesses, and sometimes even pictures and videos. It’s a great (and free) way to promote your business to customers in your local area, and it’s easy to set up.
