Millions of people make Google searches every day. A free listing on Google Places or Google Maps as it is sometimes known makes it easy for them to find you in a local search and remember; the vast majority of people are looking to do business with local companies.

Use Google Places to create your free listing. When potential customers search for local information, they will find your business: your address, hours of operation, even photos of your shop front or products. It’s easy, free and you don’t need a website of your own but if you do own a website then this is an excellent way to get visitors.

You can list your business with Google local by first of all registering for a Google account if you don’t already have one, follow this link to Google Places www.google.co.uk/places
