Getting Your Local Businesses on Google Maps

One of the questions I get asked the most is in reference to how to get our local businesses listed on Google Maps. Luckily, Google makes this process about as easy as most things on google.
Here are the Steps:
Step 2: Click on Add new business
Step 3: On the next page, you will input address, contact info, website, description, and even be able to fix incorrect marker location
Step 4: After Confirming the marker location, the next page will allow you to categorize your business, and specify hours, which is hugely helpful for shops and restaurants. Here, you can also add photos, and even a video of the shop owner talking about their place of business.
Step 5: Confirm the information. You can confirm the information by phone or postcards, and is all automated.
Step 6: Bask in your googleness!
I have put together a step by step video to make it easier!
