Why the map maker for email marketing?
It’s very difficult to insert a Google or Bing map into an email campaign and ensure that the map displays for all recipients of your email marketing. The reason is that Google and Bing (and other online map providers) give you some ‘code’ to insert into your email campaign; the code given isn’t an image and contains stuff that is incompatible with email standards (set a very long time ago).
I get many people asking how they can easily get a map to insert into their email marketing. I therefore generated the map maker as below.
What the map maker does
The form above will generate a Google Map as an image for the address of your choosing. You’ll then be able to add the map to your email marketing as you add any other image. The map of course can be used in Mailchimp email campaigns as well as other providers such as ActiveCampaign, Constant Contact, Campaigns Monitor, AWeber and so on.
Instructions for using the Google image map maker
Time needed: 5 minutes.
Here are the instructions to generate a Google map for inclusion in your email marketing.
- Generate your map
Enter the address for which you’d like a map generated. Complete the first name and email fields and click the ‘Get my map button’.
- Download your map
You’ll receive an email message with the URL for your map image. Click the URL and then save the image to your computer.
- Insert the image into your email campaign
Your map can be inserted into your email marketing campaign just as you add any other image.
