Yes, Add a Live Google Map to Your Website!
If you are planning any type of event to market online this is a must have.
If you do direct marketing parties, planning a conference, charity gathering, or even a Tweet Up you will save your attendees time, No need for them to ever leave your site.
What I am showing you today is revolutionary. Ok, maybe not but, it’s freakin cool.
As an example-
I am advertising that I am holding a conference in the Las Vegas area!
I can simply say that it will be at
12300 Las Vegas Blvd. South
(Yes, Henderson is a run on city to Las Vegas but, most people would not know that)
I could also give brief driving instructions but, that leads to a problem. Do I give the directions for people coming in from the North, South, East, or West?
What about attendees that are from out of town (staying in a hotel) and have no idea which direction to even start from?
Here is where the Google Map Gadget comes in.
You go and create your live map gadget, it’s free and easy.
All you need to do is put in the location of your event, pick a boarder color, and size it.
Hit Get The Code – now place that code on your site with your event announcement.
Now all your guest need to do is place their starting address in the box and they will be given directions from where they are right to your super cool event.
Go ahead – try it! -
Want something really neat?
Put in Your City and State - It will give you cross country driving instructions. Just don't let your family know or they might be able to show up at your door. LOL!
I think that even sites like churches, stores, parks,…could benefit from this map gadget.
Why make someone work harder to find you?
Keep them on your page and let them get the information they need to show up at your door.
If you use this gadget and make HUGE money at your event – I would like a finders fee please. LOL!
