Check-in applications such as Foursquare, Facebook Places, Gowalla and others are focused on providing the users with a rich nearby content and help them share where they are. We of course encourage you to list your business in those applications and make it visible to the users of those apps, but it will probably won't have any effect on your business at all. When the user of a check-in app looks what's nearby he/she does that for 2 main reasons: 1) To find the place where he/she's in right now to notify his/her friends. 2) To find a nearby Coffee, Restaurant, ATM etc. If you're Starbucks for example, neither of these actions do any good for your business in particular. You'd probably want to get the user specifically to your store. That's where BranchMaps comes in.
Search apps such as Google Places and others are focused on providing the user with result for search queries such as: "pizza nearby me" or "coffee nearby 5th avenue, new york". Just like any other Search Engine you know, these apps are optimized to provide the most accurate results for the search query while promoting paying businesses up the list or into the Ads section. We of course encourage you to have your business listed in those services but it will probably won't have effect on your business at all. When the user of a search app searches for a place he/she either intends to go there anyway or go to the first or promoted result. CPC (Cost-Per-Click) campaigns to promote your app in search results will cost you $0.10-$2.00 per click, while BranchMaps costs less than 5 cents per use! If you're Hilton for example, neither of these actions do any good for your business in particular. You'd probably want to get the user specifically to your Hotel. That's where BranchMaps comes in.
