I just received an e-mail about seminars for Google Apps to learn more about the product. I think it’s a great idea that Google is doing seminars for Google Apps, but they failed at one thing. Location, location, location.
Why are they focusing all their efforts in San Francisco? It’s great that they are doing these seminars, but they need to be more geographically diverse with them and actually target individuals based on location. Google knows for a fact that I live in Los Angeles, no San Francisco. So why was I sent an invitation for a San Francisco based seminar? I could drive or fly up, but that’s a bit of a stretch — for they know how old I am as well.
The e-mail is a bit confusing too. It’s a seminar for Google Apps, but the URL has ‘adwords’ in it (http://www.google.com/a/adwords1/). So why is it partially about AdWords and partially about Google Apps?
Make up your mind Google, it’s confusing.
