Marketing a Mapping and Topographical Service
The key to success in marketing a mapping and topographical service is to combine time-tested marketing techniques with the most cutting edge strategies in today's marketplace.
For a mapping and topographical service, a great business model doesn't guarantee solid revenues.

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. But how do you go about measuring your brand's marketing footprint in geographic and demographic sectors? Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your mapping and topographical service a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. Although media monitoring is not the only tool for measuring intangible brand qualities, it has the benefit of highlighting negative PR, giving your mapping and topographical service the ability to control bad buzz when it appears in the marketplace.
When multiple interests join together in a strategic partnership, they gain mapping and topographical services economies of scale, not to mention a larger promotional footprint. Joint ad campaigns, mailings and other marketing initiatives can be conducted on either a short- or long-term basis, as long as each partner is involved in the creation of messaging and has approval authority over the content that is released.
Have you noticed that almost everyone has a smartphone these days?

There are many ways to influence consumers through mobile GPS. However, in its simplest form, geolocational marketing enables consumers to identify a mapping and topographical service in their immediate area.
