Google Palces show as linked pins on Google Maps and Google Earth.

Local Google+ pages connect with business’s physical location. For example, local pages include a map of the business’s location at the top of the page and feature its address, phone number, and hours of operation. Once you've clicked the example above, search for your business in the text box at the top of the Local Google+ page

Pins on Google Places maps are free but if you're too busy to add your pin, we can, for a small fee. The fee depends on the content in your pin.  If it's just some text like "ACME Co. here we are" Then $100 should cover invoicing, liason and actually placing your pin. It also depends of which Google map. If it's our www.mapgoogle.org,  we can also add much more of your content included in the $100, but if you needed video production, that adds a minimum of $500 to cost of your pinned Google Places marketing.

You can either add you pin on Google Maps via Google Places or you can open your account with "4 Web Marketing" and then contact us with the STREET address or exact coordinants of where you want your pin and information you want showing once your pin is clicked.
