Do you have a Google Places account? If not, as soon as you finish reading this article, go get one!
You may have heard about mobile coupons. Restaurants use them a lot. You can go to a restaurant, look up a mobile coupon on your smart phone, show the server, and get a discount, free guacamole, whatever.
Google Places will allow you to create a mobile coupon at no cost. That’s right, pro gratis. Gotta love Google. You can add a coupon for teeth whitening, new patient exam, or a seasonal offer (which is always fun). Seasonal offers might be something like, Does your breath scare people? During October, visit Dr. [Dracula] for 25% off all professional Breath Rx products. By the time the you’re passing out candy, you’ll have the sweetest breath in town. Feel free to use that. I’d be honored.
- Just go to your Google Places admin panel
- Edit your business listing
- Choose the Coupons tab
- Choose Add New Coupon
- Fill out the details, including an image (your logo or appropriate pic)
And you’re all set. The coupon will automatically run for 30 days, then go away. If you have multiple locations on Google Places, you can edit the coupon to be valid at certain locations. It’s all very cool.
