I received the first cross promotion pitch I can recall getting from one Google product group for another.
In this this case, my Google Local Business Center account information was used to pitch Google Apps Premier Edition to my business.
Google Local Business Center users can try Google Apps for a free 30-day trial period.
After 30 days, Google Apps Premiere Edition runs $50 per user per year.
Interested businesses can calculate the potential savings to switch from another messaging service provider to Google Apps with a Cost Savings Calculator.
In the above example, Google Apps provides a compelling cost benefit analysis for switching from Microsoft Exchange 2007 to Google’s Premier Edition.
