I am looking to get my sites rented out as soon as I can. I really want to get the Google Places account opened up and ranked first before trying to rent my site out to a local business.
I was thinking to rent it out (the site) first, then once rented, send the post card to their address. This method is still fine with me, but ideally, I would have one made now and work on getting it ranked and providing results BEFORE getting a client, so that I can offer them a free month to see that my offer will actually get them results.
Naturally, I want to provide them the most results possible in that "free period", so by having a well ranked Google Places before actually trying to lease them the site, it would be very beneficial.
I actually tried to create one about 3 weeks ago, I put the suburb as the actual suburb of where I wanted it, and then I chose to "hide address" so that the actual street address would NOT show on the listing. Then for the address (even though it does not show in the public profile, they still ask for it ) I just put my actual home address and suburb and post code.
On the post card it would have looked like:
STREET ADDRESS, MY SUBURB & POST CODE
LEGITIMATE SUBURB & POSTCODE
In that format, but given that it has been 3 weeks... I can only assume this did not pass
Any ideas? Opening up one of those virtual boxes, does that even work?
