Agree that optimizing your business for Google Places, also local SEO (list your address, etc.)

There are also LOTS of local online directories where your business can appear (like BING, Yahoo, etc.) so you want to make sure you are listed right and optimize them.

This company called Yext lets you do a free check how you are appearing: http://www.sbmarketingtools.com/YextListings

If you go with an automated service like that be sure you know what you are getting into.. For example..they will list you on yelp... that's great in all but that opens the door for yelp to kill your small business and force you to pay them to be able to manage any bad reviews.

Just be sure you know what you are getting into.

Ofcourse having a listing in those credible local listing sites is a must with regards in local search.
