Claim your place on Google Places for Business and call one of your Local Trusted Independent Photographers who work with the Google Business Photos program.
And Now Google is expanding their Street View Technology to go inside of businesses with a 360° Virtual Tour. Lets see what that looks like.
You may be thinking, "That's great for a retail store or restaurant but how does Google Maps help my rankings on Google Search?"

Let's take a look at what's new with Google...
Remember the statistics from earlier?
Google is #1 because they provide their users with the best possible content that is most relevant to the search the user made.

Google wants to continue providing their users with the best possible content and they are constantly changing their search algorithms and search matrices to ensure that the best content is delivered to their users. Why?
Google is now harnessing the power of Google Maps to deliver the best possible content to their users who use both traditional computers and mobile devices.
So what is Digital Marketing?
Notice What's Missing?

Where have the ads Gone?
Reviews are now a very important part of Google Search
(more on that later)
If you needed an orthodontist how likely is it that you'd schedule a consultation with Dr. Grace?

Google will also provide you the code to embed this tour back into your own website.
(Hint -that's the Grandaddy of all Back Links)
Dr. Grace has not Posted any content on his Google+ Page Yet
That sounds like a lot of extra work.

What's the big deal? Is it really worth my time?

I already have lot of Fans on Facebook
What can Google+ do for Me?

I don't have a Google Places for Business
How do I set one up?

It takes about 20 minutes to set up a page
Google spent $585 Million Dollars on creating Google+. Yeah, they think its a big deal

I get great responses from my print ads and direct mail campaigns.
Can Google Business Photos help me with those?
Direct mail is another great way to engage customers
(Ever get a mail marketing piece from Google?
The #1 online marketing company in the world?)
Simply have your advertising representative insert a QR Code on your print ad or direct mail piece with a link to your virtual tour.
I create my own marketing pieces
How do I get a QR Code?
Go to a free QR generating site like QR Me
and paste the link to our tour in the URL

(yes, that's trillion)
(since google now requires people to have a Google+ account to leave reviews the business owner can now respond to that person and interact with them on their Google+ Page)

This is a Big Deal - Watch for the Postcard or Letter
