I don't know about you, but I am a Google Maps fan. I travel quite frequently, and the first thing I do when planning a trip is go to Google Maps and do some research. In my opinion, Google Maps marketing is one of the best ways to get your business "on the map"!
I actually stumbled upon Google Maps by accident one day; many people had recommended other online map services, but I googled an address one day, and that led me to Google Maps. Once there, I was amazed at how much I could do! For example, I am planning a trip to Branson, MO next month. I used Google Maps to find a hotel, and then find some restaurants nearby. By reading the reviews people have left on the local dining options, I was able to pretty much figure out which ones I really want to try. The next step was to find some fun places to visit. Again, Google Maps helped in a huge way! I was able to search near my hotel, and find the best places to bring the kids!
If you own a business and don't think it's important to use Google Maps marketing, then you really need to reconsider. It's my #1 way to find lodging, dining and attractions!
