As a Discovery Map franchise owner, you actually get two businesses for the price of one. With your hand-illustrated, customized map and your interactive web map business (Phase 1), and later, your hotel guest directory business (Phase 2), your role is to build relationships with local merchants who depend on revenue from visitor spending. You have the exciting opportunity to enable local businesses to capture a greater share of visitor spending by having them advertise on the map! As a Discovery Map franchise owner, you operate in a reciprocal relationship whereby businesses advertise on your map and you strengthen their bottom line.
No previous publishing experience is required, but previous business-to-business sales experience is necessary. Classroom and field training are provided along with ongoing operational support. Discovery Map looks for candidates who are friendly, outgoing, are results oriented, and understand the importance of meeting key deadlines.
How Do You Make Money?
Our business model is actually very simple and has few moving parts. Your profit is the difference between your gross sales (ad revenue) and your cost of goods (maps and hotel guest directories), less your other business operating expenses. Unlike most franchises, we do not collect ongoing royalties, which should save you tens of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your franchise. In fact, the savings here alone could easily pay for your franchise.
