How Cupcake Monster Maps works

CupcakeMaps.com geo-locates to the user location to find the nearest cupcake and / or cake shops, along with user-generated reviews, menus, store hours and deals. Users can also save their favorite bakeries, share maps with friends and even add new cupcake shops to the database – all for free!

So let’s say a cupcake shop owner wants to grow locally, gain higher Google page rank, and local presence. How can CupcakeMaps.com benefit a bakery shop? Easily:

1. Make sure the bakery listed with CupcakeMaps.com. The cupcake directory is comprehensive. But it can’t work if a shop has accidentally been overlooked – so first and foremost, the bakery must make sure it’s listed! If not, simply sign-up at CupcakeMaps.com. Connect to Facebook and Twitter as well.

2. Shops should let loyal customers know they can help the business by writing a review on the site. It doesn’t cost them anything, but the rewards are immense – Google indexes every review. So each review is its own local SEO powerhouse, giving businesses greater local online presence, word of mouth marketing, higher results in the Google, Bing, and Yahoo searches. Bakeries might want to incentivize customers to tell the world through cupcake giveaways, a draw for a cupcake gift card or some other in store promotion. Be creative. More importantly, add a cupcake deal that can be downloaded and shared via Facebook – so businesses can go viral with one simple click.

3. Cupcake and cake shops can manage a loyalty program via check-in specials – where customers must check-in at the location of the business to receive a special offer. CupcakeMaps.com is like having a whole marketing team working 24/7.

4. Owners also promote with the 'Review Us on CupcakeMaps.com' sticker. When a shops gets 50 4+ reviews - they receive a 'People Love Our Sweets on CupcakeMaps.com' sticker, and they can get reviewed by our staff and get a 'Cupcake Monster Approved' sticker.
