Google Places - Have you claimed your listing yet?

Real Estate Agent with MacWin Consulting


Google Places

80% of all business comes from people who live and work within 5 miles of your location and 20% of all Google searches now relate to location. Have you claimed your Google Places listing? Do you have your Yelp page under control? Do you manage your Foursqaure Venue?

Traditional Local Ad Solutions Are Dead or Dying!

  • The Phone Directory or Yellow Pages
    • Where is Yours?
    • Most people throw them away!
    • They are not current, updated and businesses do not have the ability to change them.
  • Newspapers
    • Readers are declining rapidly!
  • TV
    • TV viewers now have Tivo/DVR, they fast forward through commercials!
  • Telemarketing
    • Do not call list, I know I’m on it!
  • Direct Mail
    • Only has a 1%-2% return rate.
    • Mail campaigns can be very expensive!
  • Email
    • Spam software!
