One of my customers recently gave me a copy of an Internet Marketer's sales pitch for Google Places. It's targeted to a niche medical industry. Their cost is $2,995 one time and guarantees top placement in Google Places. If the client should fall they'll work to restore placement for $347 month.
I haven't broken Google Places out as a standard alone service...yet.
Wondering if anyone would share what they charge and any helpful info on your model/system.
