Why Your Small Business Needs a Google Places Listing

1. IT’S FREE! 2. IT’S EASY! 3. IT PUTS YOU ON THE GOOGLE MAP!

When is the last time you used the yellow pages to find a business? I mean the physical, paper monstrosity that our parents (maybe grandparents for some of you) used to have most often plunked on top of the refrigerator. I bet there are some entering the world of business right now who don’t even know what the Yellow Pages are! The digital world is surely old enough now to have made the physical listings of businesses in your area obsolete. But yet, so many businesses when searched for online are coming up short. A missing address here, or incorrect hours of operation there. Instead of simply wondering why, I decided to put together this info-blog with two links that explain why your small business NEEDS you to create a Google Places listing and more importantly, how to do it.
