There was a time when in order to show the location of your business / shop, you had to design your own map which would typically include instructions on how to arrive to your premises. This map would also include known landmarks to make it easier for your customer to find his way.
Of course that period has long gone after Google launched Google Maps - now users except to find an 'interactive' map which allows them to scroll the map as required to better understand the location. Moreover, your customers now want to find your location on their smartphone or tablet and some might even follow the navigation instructions. Google Maps (similar to the one on this page) allows your customer to find your location on any device connected to the internet and they can zoom in and out of the location and even plan the route before visiting. Your customers will not get lost or will not phone you in the middle of nowhere asking you how to arrive to your premises.
