On Wednesday of this week, we talked about Google Places for Business and how your small business can benefit from starting or claiming a local Google+ page (and how that’s different from a social Google+ page you might already have).

Today we’re going to look at another aspect of Google Places for Business. The first step to successful local marketing with Google is setting up all of the free features available to you through Google Places for Business. These are the items we covered in Wednesday’s post, such as setting up your page and providing accurate information that will allow customers to find you, learn about you, and connect with you through ratings and reviews.


During the month of September here on the Webs blog, we’re going to be talking about leveraging local marketing opportunities for your small business.

We’ll kick things off today (and Friday) with one of the single most important things you can do if you are the owner of a brick-and-mortar operation: setting your company up on Google Places For Business.

Points of Clarification:
Before we start talking about how to get the most out of your business’ Google presence, we need to clarify few things. Since Google itself is an ever-evolving landscape, they sometimes end up with products that are just similar enough that they are easily confused.
