Blog Series: Oh the Places Your Business Can Go

August 8, 2011 – This week is all about places, where you are and where you want to be seen. Places where your clients go, Google Places, advertising places, placing your place on the places!

It’s no secret that local businesses need to get themselves on the map for location-based searching. When a potential client is looking for your business they’re going to turn to services like Google Maps (aka. Google Places or Google Local, it goes by many names), or to more specific business search pages like CitySearch, Yelp, or Kudzu.

Having a robust and detailed listing on these pages is often a free and easy way to market your business. Most directories and map services allow businesses to claim their listings for free, and then allow for paid enhancements like photo galleries, ad campaigns, and featured listings. While these are good options to really drum up some business, with a little creative SEO work and a well established page, your listing can pop without paying extra!
