Google Maps Just Got Better!

By September 9, 2011

Follow me on:

This is going to be welcome news for mobile marketers out there. Google Maps' latest update to version 5.10.0 comes with 2 brand new features - "Places" and the ability to attach photos to a place review.

We all know that location-based apps are really useful for mobile marketers, but this update takes it several levels ahead.

Now, you, as a mobile marketer, can actually make your presence felt online. Once users give you a four or five stars rating, your service would automatically be physically displayed on their map.

It would get even better if you could get your users post a review about you, with appropriate photos. Imagine the kind of traffic it could possibly drive your way!

Well, this Google Maps update seems to be a win-win situation for everyone concerned. Make sure to take advantage of this windfall coming your way.
