Google Coupons & Custom Map Icon: A Deeper Look

Aug 16, 2006 • 7:01 am | comments (6) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

Danny reported that Google Maps Gets Coupons, yea so you can now show coupons to those who find you on Google Maps/Local. You know, for bridging the online and offline conversion metric... So I decided to give this a shot. Let me take you through it. Oh, at the same time, I decided to get myself a custom map icon, Ill show you that also.

1) Start Screen at google-local-coupons1s.png View Large Image

2) Online coupon page form: google-local-coupons2s.png View Large Image

3) Error I got when trying to post my toll free number with letters google-local-coupons3.png

4) The confirmation page google-local-coupons4s.png View Large Image

5) Now Google Map Icon, I logged into AdWords and edited my Local Business ad (more detail on that) google-local-icon5s.png View Large Image

6) Checked the upload your own feature (16x16 jpg, gif or png file) google-local-icon6.png

7) Preview of what it looks like: google-local-icon7.png

8) See it in action: google-local-icon8s.png View Large Image

The deal is, I cannot see the coupons... They should be under my listing on the left of this page stating, "Coupons..." but it is not... Not sure what I did wrong...You can see it in action for a search on Honey Baked Ham, 63129, and here is an example coupon. I personally do not see my coupons.
