Be found, Stand Out and Get Insights
Did you know that one out of every five searches on Google pertains to a specific location? It's true! And from this bit of information, Google Places was born.
Google Places is easily the most powerful free marketing tool available to local businesses. Like the old fashioned Yellow Pages, Google Places offers business information organized by category. However, unlike the old fashioned Yellow Pages, Google Places is available on any computer and mobile device. This is important because many people use their mobile device as a resource for finding stores, services and businesses.
You can also create and offer coupons that appear next to your business listing in Google Maps and other Google search results. This service also is free and it creates a unique redemption code and an expiration date for your sales campaign. Importantly, Google creates and displays web and mobile versions of your coupons so that you can encourage customers to redeem them in any way they choose.
