In the new era of micro messaging, Google has added Posts to the Google Places listing tools. Think of this as a small welcome or featured message to your clients and to promote your business. If you haven’t see this yet, Google Places is the newest version of Local or Google Map type listings.
Once you have your Google Places page setup and verified, make sure and complete your profile. Then, take the next step and add a Posts feature as a quick status update in the now familiar 160 characters. The message will automatically run for 30 days in your Places page. Think about using your targeted keyphrases or a special message to your visitors. Only one post will show at a time, but you can choose between Specials, Events, or new features. The end of the year is a great time to provide information about specials and events.
Let us know how you are using your Google Posts or if you need help creating a complete listing for your business.
