As solopreneurs we know that leveraging our business on the Internet is a good way to diversify. I’m a fan of Google and it’s products. Recently I discovered how to add my business to Google’s Local Business Map Directory, including being able to offer coupons.

So, why would you want to list your business with Google. Here’s my business listing page for Syndicating Your Content, producer of North San Diego Business @ Large. If you are involved with AdSense you can also put your ads on your map. Here are Google’s Tips to creating a great listing.

  1. That’s an excellent tutorial. It’s good to know that you don’t have to have an actual storefront business to make yourself findable on Google maps. Even if you do mainly online consulting, some people prefer to do business with local professionals. I’ve certainly had online clients express the desire to work with someone who knows the local area – even if we never meet face to face.

    I’d better go get myself listed now. Thanks for sharing this video!
