How To Use Google Maps for your Business

>> Sunday, January 31

Tonight I finally got a chance to register my business with Google maps. No, I do not have a brick and mortar store and I run my online business from home. However, I thought this Google application was pretty nifty.
Registering your business with Google maps is pretty simple.
You will be asked the following questions:
Business name
Phone number
Type of business
Category of business
Hours of operation (optional)
Additional info (parking available? - optional)

You can upload up to 10 business related pictures and include a video!
Currently, this Google service is free.

I opted to verify my business via mail. In 2-3 weeks, I will receive a postcard that will verify that I am an existing business. At that point, my little dot on the map will exist.

I will update this post as I learn more.

A bit more about Google Maps from wikipedia:
Google Maps (for a time named Google Local) is a basic web mapping service application and technology provided by Google for free.
