Nice Timing, I was in the process of recommending embedding the Trail View feature for a few clients.

Judging from my many trips there, & surprising recollections, it’s Leidseplein Sq. in Amsterdam.

Google Coupons + Google Places = Google Offers

Google Offers

Google’s long awaited local advertising product is here, which Google confirmed as a “test of a pre-paid offers/vouchers program.”

“Google Offers” is a new product service to help people find great deals in their area (through a daily email or Google search.)

You can add an Offers gadget to your iGoogle home page which shows offers near you, or apps to your smartphone.

Google Offers

“Google is communicating with small businesses to enlist their support and participation in a test of a pre-paid offers/vouchers program. This initiative is part of an ongoing effort at Google to make new products, such as the recent Offer Ads beta, that connect businesses with customers in new ways. We do not have more details to share at this time, but will keep you posted.” – Nate Tyler, a Google spokesman

Google Coupons has been available to local businesses as a feature of Google Places for a while now, so Google Offers will be the rebranding & massive expansion of this feature. Google still refers to them as “coupons” on its support pages.

Google Offers should also have similar features of Groupon and LivingSocial, which promote local businesses that offer discounted products and services once a set number of people have pre-paid for the deal. Both Coupons & group deals will be rebranded as “Google Offers.”

Google Offers and Coupons

Google Offers teams are currently contacting business owners to assist in creating deals for the program. It is rumored that Google Offers will be powered by Google Checkout, and other features should include Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, Google Buzz and e-mail sharing options. Google will be assisting in the creation of deals, but doesn’t appear to be charging consumers or selling these deals (but they will probably get commissions on group discounts.)

• What affects will Google Offers have on Google Places listings?
• What new factors will need to be considered to Geo-Target locations in Offers iGoogle gadget?
• How will Google Offers reach consumers and acquire email addresses?
• What is Google’s strategy for local sales outreach?
• Will Google Offers succeed and surpass competition?
• Should you be recommending this to your clients or company?
