How to get your business on Google

Do you ever wonder how some businesses just happen to get this amazing presence on Google?  Simple, they have a Free Google Business Listing….want to know more?

I’ll never forget the day I had to go our local Thai restaurant to order dinner because I couldn’t find their number online. I’ll admit it was so frustrating, made even worse by the fact that their menu stuck on my refrigerator had their phone number printed incorrectly!!  When I walked in to order I couldn’t help myself, I said to the lovely lady at the counter, you need a Google business listing so people can find your phone number online.  The lady was so inquisitive about what I had to say, I even offered to do it for free because their Thai food is so yummy.  Two weeks later they were up on Google, making my life even better because I can never find that new menu with the right phone number…eek!  It is also so great to see my favourite Thai restaurant super busy, and I feel a little bit proud that I maybe steered them in the right direction.

I have put together a simple video tutorial for you to get your business up on Google for free.  It is pretty simple, and I highly recommend you take 15 minutes out and do this today if you have not already done this for your business.
