Google Places is a free promotional tool for businesses that can be used as an effective way to reach a very wide local audience. However, in order to get the most out of your listing, it is important to have a strong, solid one.
Once you have claimed your Google Places listing, there are a few features that you can take advantage of to make it promote your business on auto-pilot.
While filling in as many details as possible about your business in the provided listing fields is important, it is also a good practice to include as much dynamic content in your listing as possible.
If you have multiple locations for your business, then make sure that they are all included in the same listing, as this will also help with your Google Places ranking.
Adding as many images and, even better, video content can make the difference between getting to the top of the list and barley making the Google Map placing at all.
Including as much information and as many related keywords for your business niche will further optimize your listing, and broaden the range of its potential reach for local consumers.
