App Launcher is a great Google extension that helps keep your most used URLs at your fingertips. Excellent organizer that will help you navigate the New Google Plus.
“From my perspective as a user: if you’re not on Google maps, you don’t exist. I won’t find you. Case in point: I needed a suit altered once, so naturally, I searched Maps for tailors. I went to a sewing shop because it was the closest thing I could find. I later learned there was a proper tailor (old fashioned suiting, not even a chain) nearby, but they weren’t on Maps so I had no idea they existed when I needed them.”
That comment said to me: Get on Google Maps or be left behind. Make sure all the information is correct and make it easy for prospective students to find me. So I went to work!
The story I’m following:
Debi Davis 3D Communications – circle her, read her blog and generally follow everything she does – is one of the Level 3 PYB Academy Team from Plus Your Business. Their project EagleCo, is placing an entire town on Google Maps. Yes, you read that right, every business in town that will participate. The project EagleCo Vail2015 is taking the small town of Eagle, Colorado and helping all businesses put themselves on the map.
Why? Because Eagle is very close to where the World Alpine Ski Racing Championships are held in Feburary. Do you think it might be advantageous to the businesses to be searchable when thousands of visitors arrive from all over the world and are looking for things to do, interesting shops, restaurants and such?
Yes, indeed and that’s the point. This case study will prove beyond any doubt that being correctly positioned on Google Maps is important to you, me and everyone who wishes to do business in the digital age. Follow along on their G+ Page. The team members are posting about the preparations and accomplishments of each business. It is a magical thing to watch. In reality, following their progress forced me to start working on my page and kicked my butt in gear. I can see the importance and don’t want to miss out.
Follow along with me and watch this happen. You will learn. If you need help with your business page Plus Your Business has the people to help. Contact either myself or Debi and we’ll point you in the right direction to get help. I am proud to be a member of Level 3 effective January 19th. Can’t imagine what the Jan 19th class will be delving into. Debi’s full article is here http://bit.ly/1rUnzLy
