Just a quick question, do you use Google maps to find locations? I do! We travel ALOT, and I am always looking for restaurants, shops, and we even had to look for a dentist on one trip. (Someone needed a tooth filled!) Google maps helps make my decisions so much easier. I LOVE when companies have the Google Maps right on their site so I can find their location. It often makes the decision for me when I can see where they are in relation to our hotel or campground. Big benefit!
If you have a business you should use google maps marketing options for your customers. I sure would! For those of you who have businesses and are debating whether to use it or not, I need to tell you that I often choose the business that has Google maps with directions over one that does not. Especially if you are trying to draw in people from surrounding areas or visitors to the area this would be a drawing point. I don't know what I would do without Google search and Google maps. We use them on our iPad when we don't have time to pull the laptop up!
So I would say that using Google Maps in Marketing is a no brainer. It can only help build your business, and who knows how many return customers you will have after they find you the first time. They have to find you to shop or use your service.
Neighbors, let me know what you think. Do you tend to visit a business that you found using Google maps? Are you more prone to visit a business that has easily accessible directions? Let us know what you think.
