When a new business owner asks us about steps they should take online, our first recommendation is listing their business with Google Places for Business.
Along with a website, a Google Places listing provides great visibility within local and regular search results (not to mention it’s free).
For instance, if you search “Graticle Design” on Google, the majority of real estate on the page will be dedicated to our Google Place listing. You’ll notice our logo, a map of our location, contact information, and even our hours of operation.
This is the next best thing to having a website.
Here are a few of the abilities and benefits that come with a Google Place account:
+ Adding a description of your business + Adding photos of your business, products, or services + Allowing customers to easily get directions to your business + Listing your contact information and hours of operation + Ability for customers to review your business + Statistics on how many people have viewed your Google Place listing
Love working with Shawn at Graticle. He is the consummate professional and not afraid to speak up with certainty around how to maximize his talent regarding how his graphics will have the most impact on our marketing and branding efforts. In my mind, this is critical. I am not just paying for someone to create what I want, but rather the value of their knowledge and expertise to create meaningful results. On top of that, his work is outstanding. I look forward to a long, fruitful partnership. Thank you Shawn and Graticle.
Just a quick email to thank you for the great work you have done creating our logo and new product labels and manual covers, you hit the mark with the type of look and feel I was wanting and all done within the timelines required.
Thank you again for your professionalism on such an important project for us.
Graticle started in 2009 out of Ridgefield, Washington. Not the ideal time to start a business (with a recession in full) but we’ve figured out how to stay ahead of the curve and work harder and better than the other guys. We started out with one thing in mind: Clients. We realized that a project is what you’re after but that’s not all. Our clients not only love what we create but also receive great care and appreciation throughout and after their project is completed. Need more proof? Read any one of our 70 customer reviews.
