What is Google Places Essex and how can it help my company get noticed?

Every day millions of people search through Google Places Essex to look for a local plumber, carpet shop, dentist etc. Google places is a great way to help your company get noticed on the internet. Once you have setup an account via the Login area which is located in the top right of the google homepage, simply find your company location (using Google maps) and enter your company details. You will be asked for a few simple questions like your business opening hours? does it have parking? or you can even upload some pictures like the front of the shop or some of the products it sells. When uploading any graphics make sure that they are the right resolution and square in size

Once you have filled in all of the information you will need to verify that you are the business owner. A postcard will arrive at your company address with a pin number on it. This usually takes 2-3 weeks. Log back into your account and add the pin number. If it doesn't arrive or gets lost in the post you can request the card again.

Once the account is active (in time) the pin on your Google map will show your company details just added. It you want to change any of these details i.e. the opening times just log back into your account and make the changes.
