    Not too much to add to this.
    It is definitely worth claiming your google places/map listing if you have not done already. You should more completely fill out your listing and correct any errors that there might be. In short if there is a space to put something in then fill it with something about your business.
    You have space to add 10 images and 5 videos last time I looked so its well worth updating the listing. Also the default business image is also not often that impressive so if you can make your listing look a lot more attractive then the better the first impression a visitor will have.

    As CR mentioned above there are several other things that you can do to improve the ranking of your business listing. Generally this comes under Citations and reviews.

    A citation is another business listing like on yelp who will also have a business page for you and if they dont you can then start to add your business page for some of the other major business pages websites. This will help your google places page look more authentic particularly if all the information is the same with no error or differences. Basically make sure all the same information is on all your citations.

    A review is when a customer has left a review on your business page. This helps with the social aspect of your promotion. You should encourage your customers to leave reviews about your business and services. Usually after you have 5 reviews acknowledge by google you will see a nice star rating next to your business listing when it appears in the search results.

    Hope that helps

    There is no particular way to SEO your Google map Listing. One thing that you can do:

    - Social Bookmarking with the Google Listing Link.
    - Do some directory submission with this link (but not sure whether it will be approved or not)
    - One major thing is that - request your clients to give or write reviews on your Listing. Generally after 5reviews your listing will get a good feedback from Google. And then your listing can also be shown in the search results.

    Keep it up - Best of luck. :)
