Like It Or Not, Your Google+ Page is About to Get Some Traffic

Whether you want to or not, it’s time to jump aboard the Google+ ship. As a marketing professional, it’s your job to not only perfect your own Google+ page, but also to warn your clients of these recent changes to ensure their continued success.

Finally integrating its purchase of Zagat, a replacement of Google Places called Google+ Local has combined the forces of Google Search and Google Maps, creating, as you can imagine, the Incredible Hulk of Google services.

The Basics
The essential function of Google+ Local is to provide recommendations and reviews of local businesses and restaurants. Whenever you search a business or restaurant, Google+ Local gives an overall ranking based on Zagat’s 30 point system (with 30 being the best) as well as individual scores based on decor, service, and cost.

Since this new software is linked with Google+, reviews and recommendations from anyone in your circles will show up front and center—giving you reviews from people you trust, rather than Joe Schmoes you’ve never met.

Why You Need to Know
Although this recent update to Google mainly affects eateries, the same 30 point ranking system will be used on any businesses searched using Google Maps, Google Search or Google+.

The ultimate goal of this update from Google+, from our perspective, is to encourage local businesses to enhance their current Google+ pages (or create them) and bring more usage and engagement to Google+.

So, like it or not, it’s time to get your Google+ page looking fine and fancy, as more and more Google traffic will now be directed to those pages.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
