Mapping today Most well-known providers of “mapping” for consumers: Today there’s a growing demand for geo-location services. As a result, brands and their marketing agencies are trying to work out how they can engage with consumers and leverage this new technology.
Challenges No control of data No brand control [because the respective maps and locations are provided as-is] No ownership of the customer journey [or learnings from it as there are limited or no statistics available for how maps are used] Time to market

Viewing maps on an iPhone Branding:On each map, your client will have its own logo visible. In the long term, this will allow for users to recognise ownership of the map. Content:At a glance, the name of a venue will pop up when you roll the cursor over each point. The blue circle highlights that there is more information available to read and review on the location. The locations you share:When there are multiple locations that the client is recommending, they will display with any selected icon.
Leveraging maps through social media: Facebook The locations you share:When there are multiple locations that your recommending, they will display with any selected icon. Increasing reach: Friends of your customers can share map content. An individual doesn’t have to be a customer to access the map content – they can get it from a friend. This provides for experiences and interaction with the map to be shared. Sample Branding:On Facebook, there’s an enormous opportunity to share comments and/or locations. When a discussion starts, the relevant logo will display. This allows for increased brand presence across social media networks.

Summary myGeoBook will provide you with new and enhanced capabilities that they can implement throughout the following channels: Website content Maps for mobile phones Strengthen E-communications Strengthen presence on social networking site In summary, with the use of myGeoBook, you will also have access to statistics for the map usage. This will become valuable information as it will enable the Customer Experience and Marketing Teams to understand what’s relevant to the members and where improvements/enhancement can be achieved. Further to this, campaigns and site visits can become more measurable, helping to measure and evaluate business and marketing objectives.
Applying myGeoBook to your Brand or Client Customised: Maps can be customised with the following elements: Logo / Icons Images Contact information [phone number / address / website] Descriptions Ratings Content Control: Map data is stored centrally, allowing the client to have full control of the content: ensuring efficiency, quality and targetted marketing. Visibility: For your clients, myGeoBook allows the maps to be viewed online: via the client website, an e-Newsletter, Facebook pages and mobile phone. Search functionality: Maps can be searched by users, based on what is local to them. For example they can find a recommended restaurant close to their hotel. Relevance: You can layer the maps for ease of use, allowing the customer to select and personalise what they want to view on the map. For example, a single layer could be Bars and another could be Theatre Productions. The multiple map layers are an added value for the user, ensuring easy and relevant planning and scoping for each individual user. Accessibility: For offline communications – such as Press, Direct Mail and Boarding Passes – you can reference the web address to a specific map. Users can then view it on their mobile or on the web.
