Barry and I have found it pretty interesting the pros, the cons and all of the news articles about Google My Business in the past week. So we’re providing links to some interesting articles that briefly cover the spectrum of opinions of GMB from a couple of writers and Google’s effort to help SMB’s.

But for local business, search this is the main reason you want to get your business involved. The survey numbers are staggering of the number of people who own smartphones or tablets (and that business is still booming), the number of people who search for a type of business or service from their mobile devices, the number of people who’ve admitted to taking their phones into the bathroom with them. And you know you have, right? Now is the time for businesses to spend a little bit of time and claim there Google+ Page using Google My Business and to work getting on page 1 when someone searches for their particular type of business or service and stay there.
Finally, this week we recorded our VLOG from the Market Garden Brewery (MarketGardenBrewery.com) in the heart of Ohio City just west of downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Sam McNulty, owner and proprietor of not only the Market Garden Brewery, but he also Bier Markt, Bar Cento and Nano Brew – and they’re all located within walking distance of each other. Great neighborhood, good people and right next door to the historic West Side Market. The corner of W25th and Lorain Ave is a great place to spend some time with friends and enjoy what the neighborhood as to offer.
