Customers, maps and postcards from Google

If you have a local small business, you must consider Google Places. This will show your business on google maps when your customers type a related search in google maps. A lot of customers search local businesses this way and you don’t want to miss out on that.
It will also help with your SEO (search engine optimization).
It is a free service and Google will even send you a postcard … to verify your address. No wonder, they want to keep it spam free.
