Google Places Management

Every day, millions of people use Google Maps to find local businesses, from shops, restaurants and cafes, to cinemas, plumbers, photographers, dentists and electricians, to name just a few! And if your business isn’t listed, you’ll be missing out on a vast amount of potential customers, and of course, lots of money.

The fact is, the Yellow Pages is dead!

Very few people use paper directories to search for business services these days.Instead, they simply jump on the internet and Google it. And if you want to appear when someone is searching for a business service just like yours, then you need to be listed in Google Places.

What is Google Places?

Launched in 2009, Google Places allows businesses of any size to advertise their services to local customers, without paying a penny.

To explain how it works, let’s say that you’re the owner of a small restaurant in Barry, Wales. A couple have just been to the cinema and fancy a bite to eat. They type in “restaurants in Barry” into their iPhone and up pops your business, complete with your address, opening hours, special offers, videos, photos of the restaurant, and even the menu...

In essence, by listing your business in Google Places, you’re making it easy for potential customers to find you, and boosting your profits as a result.
