Your local business listing at Google and certainly with other geo-listing websites allows you to promote your events, new products, specials and more. You can take advantage of this very easily, once you have claimed your listing, by following the following five steps. We will use Google as our example.
1. Log into your Google account and go to Google Places through your account or by going directly to http://www.google.com/lbc
2. If you have multiple local business listings, choose the listing you want to update and click View Report.
3. Once you are in your Dashboard you will notice a box in the top right that looks like the following:
4. Click in the box and write a 160 character description of your business update.
5. Click Post and you’re done.
Your information will appear to the public in your local business listing on Google Maps. As of this writing you can only have one post and we’re sure this will change in time.
The Internet has become a good local business marketing source for the local business dependent upon the local consumer for their revenue through web searches and mobile searches. Tap into the power of geo-listings as you engage in geo-marketing!
