Small Business get free google adds with Google Coupons

It's horrific ..

Just how many businesses are failing to take advantage of the free marketing options in Google.
What's that, you say? Google offers a FREE coupon option?

Google introduced the idea of Google Coupons more than a year ago and yet, so few businesses are using this feature to market their business. It's so easy and only a few minutes to upload an offer which might be catalyst driving someone to your business instead of the one down the street.

I'm surprised at how many people either didn't know this or had forgotten.

Google announced the service last year.I've put together a quick tutorial on setting up a Google Coupon offer for your business. Setting up a Google Coupon is pretty easy. In fact, you could do it while you drink your morning coffee.

First you'll need to head to the Google Local Business Center. You'll need a FREE google account, then you can update your FREE business listing and/or click on the tab that says "coupons" and head straight into setting up an offer.

Don't worry .. there is loads of "help" and if it's not easy just type in the help issue into google and someone will have created a YouTube video for you to follow

The other option is to contact someone in SME that offers the service and check the fee structure to your budget. Austhai web service offers such a service for Australian market visit

All you need to do is figure out what you will offer in terms of an incentive to the consuming market
be it a discount or rebate or some added value benefit and the time frame ie., expire date of the offer and that's it
