Businesses in all industries go to great lengths to get to know their customers better — to understand what a typical customer looks for and needs, and deliver a higher caliber of service. Too often, however, these efforts rely on speculation and received wisdom rather than hard facts. As a result, businesses find it difficult to break out of their old habits and embrace innovation.
MapBusinessOnline's customer mapping tools help you take a more data-driven approach to marketing. The platform allows you to place raw sales and demographic data in a geographical context that is ideal for visualizing where and who your customers are. From there, you can allocate resources more effectively, and make smarter strategic decisions that will ultimately help grow your customer base in sustainable ways.

For example, without a customer map, your sales data is just a collection of names, dates, amounts and addresses — useful for telling you the bottom line, but little else. To allocate resources and plan for future expansion, you need to know more. A customer map can show you where your customers are clustered, and which areas are currently underserved. With this big picture view, you will run more effective marketing and sales campaigns that reach both those who have supported your business in the past as well as potential new customers.

"I just wanted to say thank you for this amazing mapping tool! I've tried a number of sales territory map solutions and this is by far the best. I just (finally!) switched over from MapPoint and this is so much better, I wish I had switched sooner. Your videos and blog are also really helpful, though most things I have figured out on my own. It looks like I also have a lot more to discover as I explore the data visualization tools. Thanks again!"
