Google My Business is Google’s page that shows up with a map when you search for yourself on Google Web or Maps. The page needs to be claimed by your business and updated with pictures and content.

Google My Business is one of your most important accounts online. With it, you manage your most important web page on the internet if you have a local business address, directing prospects searching on their computer, mobile device or tablet, to you. It works for you 24/7. You link to your website from the maps listing, further enhancing your exposure in your profession.

It’s where you add special hours to your google search result, and notify your prospects when hours are unusual such as Labor Day or Memorial Day.

The same steps need to be taken at Bing and Yahoo, but you’ll know how to do them yourself in a short time.

This is your most powerful marketing tool on the internet, and if done correctly in conjunction with email follow up with your clients, you will dominate your niche and spend little or no money on advertising.

What you will spend is a little of your valuable time connecting and communicating with the mass of people in your market, gaining priceless insight as to what they’re thinking.

Edit Google My Business page

  • Make sure red balloon is in correct location on Google maps
  • Add hours, edit where necessary
  • Add valuable content for your clients now including video from Youtube

In addition to Maps, and Google My Business, Google provides many other valuable business tools such as Google Docs, YouTube, and more. You can log into one Google account and manage all of your Google business products.

I can help set it all up, provide tech support, help update, plus maintain the page that shows up when people search for you, either on computer, mobile device or tablet.

QR Codes craigslist ads

Share and Comment

You can use a QR code as an image in a Craigslist ad to add value to the searcher’s results.  It helps the person looking for you, find you and get more information.

Craigslist removal of links in ads was a subtle albeit huge change in how ads are written and look in craigslist. It changed a worldwide marketing platform overnight. Many advertisers (and no doubt some spammers) simply abandoned CL and sought other advertising conduits, reducing your competition.

Here’s an ad with links from the “good ole” days:

New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers Tickets
August 27, 2014 Comerica Park
Buy Now »

Scan to go to webpage and find tickets

At first many advertisers wrote there url address and instructed, copy and paste address. This phrase violates craigslist terms SO DON”T USE IT. But a QR code can still take your prospect to a desired page.

To make a QR code, navigate to the page you would like to link to, select the url address and copy. Next open a QR code generator page that generates the code for you. Then download to your computer, and finally upload to craigslist. It should be the last image you upload so it’s not the default ad image. It’s ugly and confuses most people, they may think it’s too much work, plus may not have the app yet, so you don’t want it showing up as default image for ad.

If you have a graphics program you can add instructions in the image above and/or below the block you scan. If you search “how to put tables” or “how to use href”, or “how to add links”,  “.. in craigslist ads”, you’ll find many informative but obsolete pages.

You’re now limited to making your ad stand out with creative text and pictures. If you write your ad with unsupported code now, you get the a message: img, Font, Table, Div and Span tags are no longer supported in this category.

Making a great ad is a matter of testing, but generally simple converts better.

A good example of an ad is:

Yankees vs Tigers Tickets 8/27/2014

New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers Game
August 27, 2014 Comerica Park

Two images:

QR Codes craigslist ads
Yankees vs Tigers baseball game 8/27/2014


QR codes are commonly used on paper literature too, but the public needs instruction to know what to do and how powerfully simple they are to scan and go to webpage. Write instructions with as few words as possible.

To make a good looking ad:

  1. use keywords people are searching for in title
  2. use simple text in 3 lines
  3. use call to action in H2 tag
  4. use horizontal lines
  5. use 3-5 images including QR code image

* A free app is available on your device, search barcode scanner

Now, scan away.
