Gilbert, AZ, December 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Gilbert Company Chosen As a Google Favorite Place
Bulwark Exterminating, LLC chosen as Favorite Place on Google
Over the past few days, the marketing department at Bulwark Exterminating, LLC was surprised to receive a letter from Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California announcing, “Congratulations! You’re a Favorite Place on Google.” In a neatly packaged envelope with a Google Map of downtown San Francisco printed on the inside of the envelope, Bulwark Exterminating received a “We’re a Favorite Place on Google” poster. The poster was sent with a peel-and-stick picture and instructions to add the poster to your store window. Printed on the poster was a two-dimensional QR barcode that when scanned takes the user to the Bulwark Exterminating Local Business Listing on Google Maps.
Also included in the envelope was a pass-along card that reads, “Grow your business by enhancing your free Google listing,” and a list of three items:
1. Use your Google account to log in at google.com/localbusinesscenter
2. Keep your hours, website, and other details up to date. Stand out with photos, video, even coupons-all for free.
3. Keep checking your personalized business dashboard to see how many hits your listing is getting, what zip codes people are traveling from to reach your door, and more.
The pass-along card further states in bright yellow bold print, “The enclosed decal is for your window, so you can show customers you’re a Favorite Place on Google,” and in smaller print, “Have a friend you think should know about Local Business Center? Pass this card along.”
The marketing department almost immediately logged into twitter.com and posted a tweet with a link to a photo on its blog. The post linked to http://blogpestcontrol.com/eo. In the Criteria for Businesses from Google’s Favorite Places FAQ, the question “How selective was Google in selecting the businesses to receive the decal?” The answer written in response is, “Over 100,000 businesses were identified as Favorite Places, representing less than 1% of the 28 million U.S. businesses. We believe that our standards for selecting businesses are as selective or more selective than other companies which have run similar initiatives.” @GoogleMaps responded to our tweet by writing, “#FavoritePlaces, Glad that you like! RT @Thos003 Check out what @googlemaps sent Bulwark pest control. http://yfrog.com/331igvj.”
Bulwark Exterminating recognizes that even the smallest advantage in online marketing can make a big difference to the bottom line. Bulwark Exterminating is grateful to receive this award and thanks its loyal customers for helping them enter the top tier of Google Maps.
