Avenza Launches PDF Maps Retail Affiliate Program
Aims to monetize map purchase for map publishers and travel-themed retailers
Avenza Systems Inc. has launched an affiliate program for its market-leading consumer and enterprise mobile map app. A retailer or any other business can now earn revenue by promoting and selling PDF Maps directly to its customers using affiliate links on websites or by using signage with QR codes. Each map sale conducted in this manner will earn the affiliate a share of the revenue.
"We are currently working with a number of key map publishers and brands to roll out the affiliate program, and the interest and excitement we've seen so far is significant,” says Ted Florence, president of Avenza Systems. “There has been substantial growth in the use of the PDF Maps app not only as an outdoor recreation tool, but also as a solution for travelers, business people, enterprises and professionals. Because of this, examples of affiliate businesses include but are not limited to, outdoor recreation stores, hotels, car rental companies, book stores and even bloggers.”
The PDF Maps Affiliate program is free to join with no application or setup fees or ongoing costs. Existing PDF Maps Store vendors can opt in to the affiliate program and earn commission in addition to their normal revenue share.
"This is a great opportunity for Avenza to increase our marketing efforts and broaden our brand awareness of the PDF Maps platform," says Doug Smith, sales and marketing director.
Businesses interested in joining the affiliate program can sign up for free and can get in contact with the PDF Maps team here.
The PDF Maps app is available in the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store free of charge for personal recreational use. A Windows version is in public beta release. Commercial, government and academic use licensing is available for a nominal annual fee.
