How Important is Online Marketing?

Hi Neighbors!

For those of you who own a business, I want to ask;, how important is online marketing to your business?  Do you use any form of on,line marketing to promote your business and to help customers find you?  What types of marketing do you use?  Internet marketing is quickly becoming a way of life and is slowly replacing other forms of advertising. 
On the road again!

I personally do much of my research online to find companies with products and services I am interested in.  And the next generation seems even more dependent upon electronics to solve their problems.  While traveling, we personally use an iPod to look up local businesses and restaurants.  And of course Google maps come into play here as we are often in a town we don't know well and we need correct directions quick.  We have experienced first hand how important Google Maps can be to a business.  Often times that can be a deciding factor in our being able to find the business we are looking for or if we just go on somewhere else.  Just having your address on your site often isn't enough for people to find you anymore.  And if they can not find you quickly people will often choose someone else who they can find.

So, do any of my neighbors here At the Fence use Google Maps on your site?  How important would you rate having easily accessible directions to your business? If you do not have a business how important is it to you that a map is available?  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
