Google Earth is gaining momentum for reaching customer. They are several ways to use Google Earth. At first level, do some roof advertising. Some companies gain alot buzz at roof advertising. Look at (link) how maxim celebrate its 100. issue, or target's roof ads.

At second level, try to produce some content within Google Earth. There are lots of potential between google eath and brand. For some inspiration, T+L magazine, they list best 500 hotels in Google Earth. We'd expect lots of branded content on googleEarth; such as, BritishAirways create mash-up on best places to travel, Bridgestone create F1 roadmap…
