Danny Sullivan took this picture in San Francisco of a Goog411 billboard sitting on top of an Ask billboard:
Yesterday driving down the street in Oakland I also saw a Goog411 billboard. This appears to be a bona fide effort by Google to expose the service to people and generate usage.
Again, what’s remarkable with this is that Google is actually doing consumer marketing (a first) for a product and not relying entirely on word of mouth.
I’m wondering where similar marketing is from Microsoft’s Tellme.
