A couple of tips and trick how to make your map more visible

  • Make sure you have selected “Publish map” and “Show map at Mapotic.com”. We will display the map among others if it has more than 10 locations and has an image in the header.
  • Make sure you have checked the “Enable Crowdsourcing” checkbox in Settings and that other users are able to add places in the map.
  • Invite friends and people for whom the map is designed to help you fill places. Write them exactly what you expect from them, how they can benefit from the map and how to do it.
  • Tell your friends about your map on Facebook and ask them to share it with friends.
  • If you have a website, put your embeded map on it. You can find the code in the “Embed” menu.  If you do not know how to do it, contact us. We will gladly help you.
  • Inform communities that can benefit from the map (on the community website, emailing specific people, magazines, etc.)
  • See if there is a Facebook group (or groups) which is dedicated to your or related topic. Become a member of these groups and inform others about the map. You can do the same on discussion forums.
  • Write about your map and on its purpose a blog – whether on your site or on a public blog
  • Think about what websites the people your map is intended use and consider the opportunities for promotion on these places (whether physical, such as cafes, nurseries, or virtual ones such as community websites, discussion forums, or blogs)
  • Try to invest some time in telling journalists about your project and its usefulness. Several authors (e.g. WC compass) found their popularity that way. You can send out a press release to the editors and call them. If the map will be beneficial to others, there is a good chance that someone will write about it.
  • If you are willing to invest money in addition to time, you can try a promotion on Facebook. Facebook can very precisely target people according to specific interests. For a few hundreds or thousands of crowns you can reach tens of thousands of people with similar interest and get a lot of fans and users.
