Question: My first question is how do you manage Google places if you want to appear in different places / cities?
Second, could you please suggest a good book for social media campaigns via facebook, twitter, etc?
Answer: Question #1. You can have multiple addresses – just log into Google places and you can add multiple listings, assuming you can receive post cards at each address. Also make sure that each has its own UNIQUE phone number. And, best of all, is if each has its own website, or at least its own page on the website. So, something like http://www.yourcompany.com/dallas and http://www.yourcompany.com/houston. But if you have unique addresses, unique phone numbers, they do allow you to list them.
Question #2 – I just finished FACEBOOK MARKETING FOR DUMMIES, which was excellent. There is also an SOCIAL MEDIA DUMMIES book but it’s getting out of date. My workbook will be out this summer. So your best bet in terms of books is just go to Amazon and start searching. There aren’t that many (yet).
