Get some free (and good) advertising at Google Places

It's a Small Small World

Have you taken advantage of Google Places for free advertising on the Internet?

See how it works. Do a search in Google for "Scentsy in Paso Robles, California". On my browser Yvonne is also #1 for "Scentsy in san luis obispo" which is a bigger town down the road. What do you see? You should see my wife's name at or near the top of the search results. You can probably get the same result for your company and city. Did I mention it is FREE?

But first, why is it a good idea to make this happen? If you believe, like I do, that a fair number of people are searching for reps in specific places, then you might as well get it done asap. Sure, you may not get much action right away, but what if just one person found you that way each month. How many might join your team?

Did I tell you this is very easy to make happen and it takes maybe 15 mintues of your time? 

So, first do a search for your company and city like I did above. See what your competition is. You will probably see just a couple of people (at most) unless you live in a large city.

Then go to this Google web page:

Do what Google says in the instructions. In a short time, maybe a week or two, your listing will also be up there where Internet searchers can see you.
