There is a site that can shoot you right up on the pages of Google and the best part, IT’S FREE. What! yes it’s free. Google Places is the place you want to be. Here’s what Google says about Google Places.

“97% of consumers search for local businesses online. Be there when they’re looking for you with Google Places for business – a free local platform from Google.”

So here’s what you need to know, it’s super easy. Go to Google Places, sign up! Then start filling in all the information, the more you fill out the better. One of the good things about having this site is ratings, if you have a brick and mortar store/business you can ask for reviews from your customers which is also a great way to get hits from Google. Did you know Siri uses ratings type sites to recommend places.

Don’t have a local business, you can specify a service area and hide your actual business address, for those of us who work from home.

Using Google Places will also help you to learn what people are using in search engines to find you, this can come in handy when you are optimizing your site for search engines.

Not on Google Places, don’t want to hassle with it, we can help, hire us to do it for you, it’s a quick affordable solution. Call today, 567-202-0054 or email Erin @irishis.com

Toledo Cash Mobs Second Hit

For our second Cash Mob we chose The Original Sub Shop on Broadway. Another huge success! I went about an hour into it and it was hopping and Jackie the co-owner said it had been that way since they opened and it just kept going. I am so proud of this group, I feel like a proud mama. I did an interview with Channel 13 on the phone and they did a great piece on their website and then the actual news broadcast was shown several times. Here is the link to watch The Blade did a great article too, see it below.

We’ll plan another one in a month or so and hopefully it will be an outside type of place, gardening, or a nursery or something.

Thanks Toledo You ARE the BEST!
