BELMONT, CA, January 23, 2011 (Press-News.org) Chambers of Commerce offer useful and essential services to promote the businesses of their members. Through the services of Carlos Acosta, they can now offer their members free listings in Google's Local Places.

"Only two percent of businesses have claimed their Google Local Places listing," said Acosta. They may not know how, don't know how it works, think it's too difficult or just ignore it. They don't realize how much business they're missing by not being listed in Google Local Places."

Acosta specializes in local business insurance, with over 22 years in the industry. He uses listings in Google Local Places and Google Maps for his own endeavors with exceptional results. He can help chambers of commerce members claim their own Google Local Places listings for free. His 14-page report exclusively for chamber of commerce members explains what a Google Local Places listing is and how it can significantly increase business.

The Internet has changed how companies do business, interact with customers and promote themselves. The report explains in simple terms what Google, Bing and Yahoo is and how each works to benefit local businesses. Companies that don't have an online presence are losing revenue to competitors that have embraced the opportunities available online.

Google Local Places has become the equivalent of newspapers for advertising purposes and the new "yellow pages." Establishing a website can be time consuming, taking weeks and even months to show results. A Google Local Places listing is more effective, reaches more potential customers and is much less expensive. Many businesses achieve the coveted top ranking in search results, and results for Google Local Places is displayed before regular search results.

One in five searches is for local businesses, products and services, and one in three searches are through mobile devices. Google provides a cost effective method of online advertising for local businesses, along with technology for mobile devices. Google Local Places, Bing Local and Yahoo Local all have services that businesses can utilize to increase their business and Acosta can help firms claim their place among other companies online for free. Acosta recently produced a step by step Video in addition to his 14 page report. This video shows Chamber of Commerce Members how to Claim their Free Google Listing. All businesses are eligible for inclusion on Google Local Places.

All search engines offer various listings levels. Depending on whether businesses choose to use Google, Yahoo or Bing, those listings can include a business name, description, mobile service, location and map. More extensive listings are also offered that can include a business logo, website links and hours of operation. Listings can be changed and updated easily. Some require a small monthly fee. Acosta helps businesses claim their Google Local Listing at no charge.

The process of setting up a listing can be daunting, even for business owners who regularly use the Internet. For those that desire a more extensive listing or website, Acosta can accommodate them for a small fee.

Acosta has been fortunate in his business endeavors and he's offering his services free as a way to give back to the community. His expertise allows Chamber of Commerce Members to achieve an online presence that's cost effective and results in more customers, sales and revenue.

To inquire about an exclusive listing, Acosta can be reached by phone at 650-598-0396. For more information, and to get your free report and video, Chambers Members should go to http://www.findmybusiness.org
