How often do you find yourself giving new clients directions to your office? Google Maps offers a great tool for creating a map that will show clients the location of your office. Go to maps.google.com and type your office address into the search box. Click on the link icon (look for an icon with 3 chain links at the top right corner of your screen). This will open a pop-up that will give you a URL link you can use to access that same map. Send that link to a new client via email and they can see the map.

The pop-up also gives you the HTML code you can use to include the map on your website. Slick! Take it a step further by creating customized maps to show clients directions to other places that might be helpful for them (e.g., the local court house).
