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.

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

What can I say, working with Graticle and Shawn was an absolute pleasure. Shawn is very detail oriented, over communicates and presents all the information you need to know in a very easy to understand and view format. The way he operates is first class. We got better service and a better final product than we could have expected. Thank you Shawn!
