TUJUNGA, CA, August 14, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The opportunities that companies have through local Internet marketing are vast, and Guru Marketing Group employs all the best practices for clients. Businesses are encouraged to get involved in social media networks as a way of improving search engine optimization (SEO) and of building relationships with customers.
A relatively little known Google Maps marketing technique is My Maps. This customizable online tool can be used for marketing purposes with incredible results.
My Maps allows you to design a Google Maps interface which displays information about your local business. User-generated maps can greatly enrich the Google Maps experience for people visiting the area while providing greater exposure for local merchants.
An example of a My Map listing would highlight all of the independent bookstores in a localized area. The creator of the map could experience a higher volume of traffic as a result of using this Google Maps marketing opportunity.
Each creator of My Maps has an amazing amount of control over their project. One of the biggest advantages of My Maps is that it greatly increases the amount of exposure businesses can enjoy.
Based on monitored results, a business could have over 60,000 click-throughs or more to their website due to its presence on My Maps.
The following are some steps to creating Google "My Maps:"
- Begin by building your Google profile page. Include a good representative icon and links to your website
- Create maps that are useful for consumers, even if for a small niche group
- Include a link to your custom-designed maps from you website
- Complete the information bubble content for each of your place marks
- In the information bubble content, include links to related pages on your website that contain further related content
