  • Speak to CDJ a bit as Kmart is a little unfamiliar…
  • What we’re seeing at Google:1 in 5 desktop searches are related to location [source:Google blog, 4/20/10]. Think of the millions of searches made everyday online to get an estimate of the amount of local activity happening on Google. About 1 in 3 mobile search queries are made by people looking for something in their local area [source: Google mobile blog]For example, iPhone users conduct 30% more daily queries from Maps than do computer users[source: Google Internal stat]
  • Another big change is the availability of all the local information on the web in real time. And, this is one area where we are innovating rapidly at Google. Our vision is to geographically organize all the worlds information. With Google’s Geo products and services, we’re using location to increase the relevance of search. We find results for our users that are relevant, fresh, accurate, rich, personalized and packaged to convey what matters and why about every place in the world. With Google Maps, Google Earth, and Google Maps for Mobile, we provide the fastest, most interactive, and visually compelling mapping and local search experience available, wherever the user is located. Every day, Maps and Earth users spend over 1 million hours browsing geo content. We want to help people make local decisions about what to do and where to go on Google. Pull together all the relevant information that's on the web -- photos, reviews, business information, etc. -- so people can make good decisions. Google Maps is the most popular mapping site in the world, Most popular mapping site in Europe, Most popular mapping site in the U.S. 49% market share in the US, with MapQuest the closest competitor at 31% (Hitwise). 17.5% reach out of total online audience worldwide (comScore). Help local businesses connect with the millions of people who are searching for local information with Google Places (google.com/places) businesses can claim their Place Page and then customize and promote their pages - over 4 million businesses around the world have done this already. Getting people to their final destination, no matter where that is. provide the "second map" that is often needed to help users find a building on a college campus, a gate in an airport, or a store in a shopping mallExpanded navigation tools to more users around the worldDriving directions launched to 111 new countries (total = 129)EX. get directions to drive from [Johanessburg to Nairobi]Navigate is now available for Android users in 12 new countries over 50% of users who had access to it tried it out on the first dayNavigate has now helped people navigate over 2.5B KM
  • Mobile is the biggest driving force in the digital space today. There are 5B mobile subscribers worldwide, with more than a billion mobile phone connections added to the global tally in the past 18 months. To give you some perspective, that’s 3x more mobile phones than PCs.
  • The government did marketers a big favor a few years back when they mandated that all mobile devices include a GPS chip so that emergency 911 services could locate a caller in distress. Now that all cell phones include a GPS chip, location-based services have become a reality. And this will have a dramatic impact on local marketers. Foursquare, Gowalla and Google Latitude have taken off due to mobile GPS capabilities. Also, the potential for opt-in, relevant locally targeted ads will shortly become a reality. And with Near Field Communication chips soon to be standard in smartphones, our mobile devices will become our wallets. Imagine the ability to pay for all of your transactions with your cell phones and have those purchases automatically fed into your loyalty programs at Starbucks, Target, Best Buy, etc…. And, if you so choose, you could receive alerts the next time you walk into a Target about products that you purchased in the past that are now on special. This is already happening in Japan and Korea. And it’s been talked about for some time in the US. It will happen soon in the US. At a hyper-local level, restaurants, bars, local retailers, etc… will also be able to get into the game.
  • Powerful mobile processing, connectivity and cloud computing have all converged on high-end devices. Because of these three tech trends, here at Google we don’t see the phone as simply a phone. Take this Android device here. It's a sensor rich device: with a camera, a speaker, a microphone, a GPS chip an accelerometer, etc. But megapixel cameras have been around for a years. And your high school prom had a better P.A. system than this phone. But what happens when you take this sensor-rich computing device, and connect it to cloud services?This camera becomes an eye to see with; the mic and speaker become ears and a mouth to hear and speak with; and the GPS chip becomes a personal compass.That's magic -- that's a new era of computing.How these new high-end devices are radically transforming the possibilities for how consumers engage and interact on mobile and the implications this has for you as marketers.Let me to share with you some examples of how these phones have transformed what consumers are able to do and what they’re demanding from their mobile phones. _______________________________
  • Google Places help local businesses connect with the millions of people who are searching for local information with Google Places (google.com/places) businesses can claim their Place Page and then customize and promote their pages - over 4 million businesses around the world have done this already. SERVICE AREAS: If you travel to serve customers, you can now show which geographic areas you serve. And if you run a business without a storefront or office location, you can now make your address private.TAGS: For just $25 per month, businesses in select cities can make their listings stand out on Google.com and Google Maps with Tags. As of today, we’re rolling out Tags to three new cities — Austin, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. — in addition to ongoing availability in Houston and San Jose, CA. In the coming weeks we'll also be introducing Tags in Chicago, San Diego, Seattle, Boulder and San Francisco.BUSINESS PHOTO SHOOT: In addition to uploading their own photos, businesses in select cities can now request a free photo shoot of the interior of their business which we'll use to supplement existing photos of businesses on Place Pages. We've been experimenting with this over the past few months, and now have created a site for businesses to learn more and express their interest in participating.CUSTOMIZED QR CODES: From the dashboard page of Google Places, businesses in the U.S. can download a QR code that’s unique to their business, directly from their dashboard page. QR codes can be placed on business cards or other marketing materials, and customers can scan them with certain smartphones to be taken directly to the mobile version of the Place Page for that business.FAVORITE PLACES: We're doing a second round of our Favorite Places program, and are mailing window decals to 50,000 businesses around the U.S. These decals include a QR code that can be scanned with a smartphone to directly view the mobile Place Page for the business to learn more about their great offerings.Personalized Dashboard: track how many times people found your business on Google, what keywords they used to find it and even what areas people traveled from to visit your business.
  • Recently I was in Las Vegas and walking down Las Vegas Blvd. Now I don’t the name of every big hotel on the strip, and when I saw this huge Eiffel Tower out in front of one of them I wondered which place this was. I took out my Nexus One and snapped a picture with Google Goggles. Google Goggles is an application available for Android. It leverages the camera, GPS, cloud and connectivity– and supercharges the definition of “search” on your mobile phone.Bam! It instantly pulls up the landmark and is smart enough to know that I’m not in France. It tells me that this is the Paris Hotel and Casino!

  • Location targeting is seen as increasing relevance
    88% of Retailer A customers found it positive vs. 80% of Retailer B
  • What we’re learning from 2010 retail rollout…
    Consumers are very positive about the use of their location information, provided there is an exchange of value
    Texts have most immediate impact on low-consideration products with many retail outlets - more chances to purchase, triggers impulse buying
    But texts also help to build loyalty and increase awareness of new product intros for higher-consideration products, and serve as reminders
    Redemption rates on coupons/discount codes from 24% (fashion) to 65% (fast food)
    Successful recruitment into location-based mobile programs has happened via dedicated email blasts, in-store signage and promotions, direct SMS and social networking
    Geo-fencing and messaging strategies depend on a number of factors, from the purchase consideration cycle for the product to the number of outlets, time of day and traffic patterns
