Making Google Places Work For Your Business

Getting found online by people who are searching for your services or products in a highly competitive market during an economic recession can sometimes mean the difference between staying in business, or becoming a business insolvency statistic. So if you intend to stay competitive, advertise your products and services free and stand out from the crowd, you need to get on to Google Maps and stake your claim with Google Places.

Beyond being found, you will want to add videos, photos and reviews to your listing. You can also highlight promotions and post live updates about what’s going on in your business. Google Places is open 24/7, so if you have a special promotion in the works, you can quickly and easily get it promoted for no money outlay.
