How to Fix the Zoom in Embedded Google Map & Frame attributes

Problem with displaying Google Map on your site

In the new Google map, the share > embed map on my website, seems to have a problem with the zoom.

The embedded map shows barely the main street of the location you want, making this quite difficult to use.

Visitors to the website will have to manually zoom out by pressing the minus sign on the map several times to be able to use the Google map, not only is this annoying, but also looks very unprofessional. Luckily the solution is very simple, you just need to add the zoom level within the iframe code to fix this issue.

Solution

There are 2 ways to fix the zoom in Google map, depending on whether you are using the Classic Google Map or the New Google map. Below I will give the solution to both.

After creating your map, you click on: Share > embed map on my website, and google will give a code for you to copy and paste into your website.

the code will look something like this:

<iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zaFvX1PrDnRHjN3qlg-MJo” width=”640″ height=”480″></iframe>

In the new Google maps, just add &z=# where the larger the # the more zoom in view, the smaller the number the more zoom out view of the map.

Please note that the &z=# should be added within the “” of the scr.

Example, if we wanted to zoom the map to 12, then the code above would become:

<iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zaFvX1PrDnRHjN3qlg-MJo&z=12” width=”640″ height=”480″></iframe>

in the old classic Google maps, you would add &zoom=#

so the code would become:

<iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zaFvX1PrDnRHjN3qlg-MJo&zoom=12” width=”640″ height=”480″></iframe>

Other properties you can  also change in the code above is obviously the width and height of the iframe, such as:

<iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zaFvX1PrDnRHjN3qlg-MJo&z=12″ width=”720” height=”960″></iframe>

Or you could add/remove a border

<iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zaFvX1PrDnRHjN3qlg-MJo&z=12″ width=”720” height=”960″ frameborder=”0″ style=”border:0″></iframe>

by specifying a border equal to zero, the map appears to be part of the page without any borders surrounding the iframe.

Who needs sales training?

Everyone is selling something most of the time. When a baby looks cute and smiles at you, they are selling themselves, when a child gives you a cute look that you cant resist, they are selling themselves or want something from you.

In business we need star sales for our businesses to survive. Entrepreneurs must be good sales persons if they are to see their idea come to life, otherwise they must partner with a great salesperson, or hire star sales and create a sales team.

Is Sales training a must? 

Absolutely! It is untrue that people either have it or don’t, and that some people are born with sales skills while others can’t sell even if their life depended on it. That is a myth. Sales, just like most skills in life can be taught and mastered. Sales training is an absolute must for any organisation looking to survive and grow, specially in the more competitive world of today. Sales training is not an option, it should be part of any serious business strategy.

What added value does sales training provide?

Several things can give an added value with the right sales training, such as motivation, new negotiation skills, new sales strategies, new insights into sales channels and many more personal traits and habits that can be acquired from the right sales training courses and workshops.

What is also very important is the retraining and continual support given to the sales team. Learning is a continuous process that enables the sales people to stay empowered and ahead of the competition.

Fikr provides sales training courses to empower people and improve sales of the company.
