No offense to our readers from the great state of Vermont but if it wasn’t for skiing and syrup many folks don’t think much about the state. That’s not a knock it’s just the truth. (Quick: WIthout looking it up what’s the state capital of Vermont?)
Well, Google once again showed its new found marketing and outreach chops by taking its Get Your Business Online campaign to the Green Mountain State (yes, I had to look that up but I did know the capital without looking it up). Take a look at this local news report about the big search engine hitting the road and helping spread the word about this Internet thingy.
Google started this program in Texas back in July. Going from Texas to Vermont is like taking your message to two different people groups on different ends of planet even though it’s just in the little ol’ US of A.
I have to hand it to Google, they are getting out of the office more and it should pay huge dividends in SMB loyalty moving forward. Thanks to Matt Cutts for passing this along (not like he has a vested interest or anything).
Lastly, note to those who think that Google speaking to the outside world is a monopolistic move and is part of the evil plot to shut everyone out of doing business anywhere unless they check in with Google first: shut up and get to work!
