Here are few benefits of local listing.

Google Places Listing Benefits:

Low cost.
High search engine results.
Increased reputation on and offline.
Improved customer satisfaction.
Excellent opportunities to extend branding online.
Integrates superbly with other online marketing efforts.
Extremely mobile phone friendly.
All your accurate, up to date information readily available.
Allows you to show up in Google Maps.
Can include special offers and printable coupons.
Photographs and images of your business lead to increased trust from a potential customerís perspective.
Streamlined analytics allow you to see who has been searching for you and where they have previously been online. This enables you to adjust your marketing plans accordingly.
If you donít have a website this is an easy way to maintain an online presence.
More people search for businesses online than anywhere else and Google Places is a superb way to put your business in front of them.
Google Places beats any offline marketing method for your business in terms of ROI.
You can surge past more established websites within your market with a Google Places listing so that a first page listing on Google is far more easily achievable.
Google Places listings beat organic results hands down when it comes to search results.
If you are running a business in a major city, Google may well offer you a free professional photo shoot of your business as this helps them both verify your listing and enhance the quality of their offer.
You will be far more visible to the vast majority of users of both Android and iPhones who are searching for businesses within a 5km radius.
Provided your listing is set up properly, you can achieve all of the above within an impressively short period of time.

A local business listing is an online profile that contains your business name, address, phone number, and other details. There are thousands of websites and directories on which local business owners are allowed to create free business listings.

A local listing is like a directory. Similar to yellow pages but online. This is beneficial to businesses since most people nowadays search for services through online search engines that eventually directs them to an online directory. As they say, visibility helps generate leads and future clients.

Local business listing is good for local SEO if anyone wants to target local customers then it is good idea to submit the website into local business listing directories but those directories should be high quality.
