If it’s new customers you want, you have to make it easy for them to find you on Google. It’s that simple. Google states they are now delivering more than 11 billion introductions to local businesses per month. And what’s more, 76% of these introductions result in a connection with a business. These returns are amazing, and it’s the reason why Google is the most valuable advertising platform the world of small business has ever seen.

and are simply missing out on both free and paid leads from Google.
