Advantages Of Advertising Your Business With Google Places.
First, but not necessarily the most important advantage of using Google Places to advertise your business, is the fact that Google Places is Free. That’s right, just like most things Google, there is no charge for a superior tool that really delivers.
Google Places is a Local Directory Business Listing Service that currently drives more business than most (paper) phone book directories… You know the ones, those Yellow Page-type directories that cost most businesses thousands of dollars per year.
With a properly-optimized Google Places listing, your business is almost guaranteed to appear on the first page of Google when someone searches for your products and/or services in your city.
Your Google Places Listing includes a link to your website, your physical mailing address and your phone number. This allows prospects and customers to contact you more quickly and makes it easier for them get the information they need. With your Google Places Listing, you can also provide special offers, discounts and coupons for one day, one week, or one month.
Mobile phone users will find your business listing almost immediately, and they don’t need a computer to do it. Which means you will receive more traffic and new customers.
Getting “Reviews” listed on your Google Places page, helps to increase your search ranking. This means you’ll be found higher up the Search Results List, making it more likely that more targeted, “Sales-Ready” customers will find your business, products and services.
From a Internet Marketing Strategy perspective, Google Places delivers profitable results much faster than traditional SEO and Internet Marketing methods, meaning you will make more money than you did prior to your business being listed in Google Places.
The Most Important Advantage Of Google Places: Timing
Whether you are going to set up and claim your Google Places page on your own, or if you want us to do it for you, the sooner you have your Google Places Listing in place, the quicker your customers and new prospects will find you and buy from you.
