Ready for places?

July 8, 2011

So google and facebook are fighting for the social media world. You might not be interested in such a fight if you are not playing in the online world. However, as a result of the fight more and better features are being rolled out for everybody to use. And everybody means not only online players.

Today we are discussing places. What are places? Let’s describe them as an interactive map that lists local attractions in your neighborhood. This are specially used by tourists and people with smartphones, looking for cool places to hang out. They check which places are preferred by there friends or the reputation and make a decision. Straight to the point: this people are looking to buy, eat or have fun and if you are not listed, you lost.

That said, even if you are a local retailer, a restaurante or a hotel, chances are you sell more just by using some of these tools. They are free to use and you’ll only need some limited skills to use them. If you don’t have any skills, go and grabb your grandson or your nephew. If you don’t have any, give us a call and we’ll help you.

You might want to check all these 3, but even using just 1 is better than nothing a big hit against your competitors.
