google places for business
Google My Business has grown so much over the years.  With mapped locations and more information for your users, it is a perfect place to list your business / services.  Simply start a gmail.com account for all of your google tools i.e. ( places, adwords, webmaster tools, analytics ). Once you have created your account visit www.google.com/business/.  

Begin to fill out your business information and ensure that you have chosen the right categories for your business to be listed under. Once you have entered in your information, click send verification so that Google can send a postcard to verify your address ( typically takes 1-2 weeks to arrive ).  Once this postcard has arrived you will notice a code on the postcard.  Log into your Google Business account and enter in code to verify location.

In addition make sure to add a logo, hours of operations, whether or not you service clients at their location or they come to your location, and any other information you can provide so that your google listing is found easier
