Why Your Company Should be on Google Local Business

September 30, 2013    Reading Time: < 1 Minute

When a new business owner asks us about steps they should take online, our first recommendation is listing their business with Google Local 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 Business listing. You’ll notice our logo, a map of our location, contact information, and even our hours of operation.

Graticle Design on Google Search Results

This is the next best thing to having a website.

Here are a few of the abilities and benefits that come with a Google Business 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

If you’d like us to setup your Google Local Business account give us a call at (360) 450-3711. Otherwise, you can get started here: www.google.com/local/add/businessCenter

I highly recommend choosing Graticle for any of your graphic design needs. I worked with Shawn on designing the album artwork for an upcoming CD my band is releasing. Shawn has been a pleasure to work with. Professional, timely, creative and produces a very high quality final product. Shawn is highly skilled in many computer design programs and knowledgeable about technical design aspects that helped make this project flow smoothly. Graticle has been a very positive and rewarding company to work with and I would use Shawn again for other projects as well as recommend him highly to my friends.

We had Shawn with Graticle, Inc. take our old website and make it mobile and do other enhancements that make is so much easier to use. Shawn listened to our Board of directors, gave us a very reasonable quote as compared to others, and then he did exactly what he said he would in the time frame that we agreed to! We are very happy with his professionalism, knowledge and customer service. Not planning to go anywhere else!
