5  ways to explain Maptags  to anyone

Maptags is quite a revolutionary idea for sharing your address with others , in a world where addresses sharing so difficult . Maptags basically sorthens your address to your favourite word and make sharing your address  as easy as sharing this word.

 

  1. Say some address 26A , Bulstrode Road, London , TW33AP ( it’s my address actually ), this  can be represented by http://mapta.gs/myoffice and going forward your friends can simply click this to find out you’re your address is and where it is , which saves up lot of time calling you up etc.
  2. If you used bit.ly , they basically shortens your URLs , so a long Facebook url like (https://www.facebook.com/groups/688055371299860/permalink/699429480162449/  can be   http://bit.ly/maptagssold  .  Just like this Maptags shortens your address to a single tag /url
  3. Imagine some one wants to verify your bank account  , address and balance. You give them your Bank Account and they can verify the details , here your Bank account acted as a key , just like that Maptag acts a key to your address , with this key , you can share your address
  4. We all use email addresses  which uniquely identify your inbox , and when u sign up up , your email address is used to pull all data  i.e  your emails , calendar , to-do list every thing , again the key is Email which pulls up all the data
  5. If you come from tech background , you know all domain names use a IP Address/ DNS numbers, so what  a domain is to DNS number , Maptag is to your address

Maptags selling Guide

 

Maptags is seeing phenomenal growth , 100s of tags are going away every day. Great sale by Carsten for $90 ,

lot of action on the FB page  –Maptags , buy sell and most importantly many wonderful  sale posts by different Maptaggers.

However , we don’t see a lot of sales stories , because every body wants to sell cool Maptags , but nobody wants to buy which is quite expectable.

Now, the issue here is , Maptags is a brand new concept unlike domain Names which everybody understands.

Maptags connects the Digital world and the physical world which makes us quite different from normal digital products like Facebook , whatsapp etc , which means Maptaggers need to think about the physical world aspect as well. Coupled with this  ,  Maptags is now at the very beginning of its journey.

The strategy for selling Maptags should definitely involve physical interactions with local business by explain them the 9 ways Maptags can help them.

So imagine there is a barber in your city , you can explain him about Maptags and try and sell Mapta.gs/barber.

Initially , people might resist , but if they do , you can lend your Maptag to them for a while  and  sell it later once they like it.

Incase you don’t own the Right Maptag, you can buy/lend it from the owner and try it out..

Simply picking cool Maptags and waiting for them to sold by simply posting them will not work great until next 2-3 years.

Similarly , say you have a businessman friend ‘Adam’ , he could be a potential buyer for  Mapta.gs/adam for $100-200 etc, where again you can try your luck.

Picking cool Maptags is only half the story , the rest is selling and you need to be a good sales person to sell any thing.

Some times though having an extra ordinary Maptags helps  like  ‘Mapta.gs/sexy’   which got an $200 offer without any trying.  So you might want to do some Maptags shopping as well , before you go on finding the right buyers for them.

Maptags Partnerships open up

Maptags has been growing faster than we could imagine, 100s of Serious Maptaggers are with us now, some tags are getting sold as high as $90 , All this has pushed us to come up with this new strategy.

While Maptags does provide the platform to create and sell tags , the real credit goes to Maptaggers , the people who own 100s of Maptags.

At the same time , the big money will be made by Maptaggers itself ( at least 80% of the Money) , as the platform only charges nominal fees for picking and selling tags.

All this means that Maptaggers Need to own up to more responsibility ,consider this venture as their baby, and ultimately profit from that.

Now the main deal is to involve Maptaggers , keeping that in mind we are announcing partnerships.

People who own 250+ Maptags and have at least 125 credits will be given the Bronze Partner status and will receive 25 Credits free

People who own 500+ Maptags and have at least 250 credits will be given the Silver Partner status and will receive 50 Credits free

People who own 1000+ Maptags and have at least 500 credits will be given the Gold Partner status and will receive 100 Credits free

People who own 5000+ Maptags and have at least 2500 credits will be given the Diamond Partner status and will receive 500 Credits free

Gifting of credits will be on a case-by-case basis. Multiple accounts will be accepted but for only those who started way early as 200 was the limit back then.

There’s more good news

Bronze and Silver partners will have dedicated access to our support staff , Gold Partners will have access to the CEO

Diamond partners will get a share of our Company (applicable only if  joined in the next 3 months )

Apart from this, Partners will also receive extra credit when you refer others and get them to pick maptags.

Maptags is a wonderful idea , that will change the way people will look at addresses in the future , however without the right people supporting it, it won’t grow fast enough.

Consider a simple math , if each Maptagger just refers 10 More Maptaggers and this continues , in 6 months we will have millions of users, Maptags will fetch superb value just like domains.

But unlike domains which suffer severe competition from a new gTLD coming up every day, there will be minimal or no competition to Maptags , which is an amazing opportunity not to be missed.

Maptags and Trademarks

Trademarks are always tricky for domain investors , while you are very happy picking up some popular names , if they infringe on Trademark , its a nightmare , because you usually end up losing the domain if there is an trademark infringement .

There is good news however which many folks don’t know , Trademarks are by definition territorial, i.e a Trademark registered in U.S is not legally enforceable in U.K unless its registered in UK as well and vice versa.

seychelles
Seychelles

So say you are in the beautiful island of Seychelles, you can posses a name say ‘Walmart’ for your grocery store as the Big ‘Walmart’ is probably not registered there.

Now coming to Maptags, we are currently located in India and will probably move to Singapore for better Fund raising and overall ease of doing business( Ranked world’s #1 in ease of doing business). So the trademarks registered in U.S, U.K or Europe don’t apply as a default.

Also just to remind you Maptags are not domain names , there are in some sense Handles/tags of the site Mapta.gs , hence the laws of ICANN don’t apply to us

Now lean more about Investing in Maptags as there are becoming the addressing standard of tomorrow , one Tag at a time.

As a shrewd investor in Maptags, you should get an idea what your next strategy should be.

Chinese love the LLLL names , 1000s are still left and we see lot of interest from our Chinese friends already

barber shop

We noticed lot of people picking up local tags like NYbarber, Lodonbarber etc which is a fantastic idea , however this can be extended to Top 25-50 Cities and to even countries possibly like UKbarber indiancurry chinesechops etc.

Many popular names like John etc are taken , however tags like Johns etc are even more valuable representing a persons home, so Johns, Adams, Zhangs, Rams should be a killer combo.

Now you can add kitchen, salon,shag,home in the end to make it complete ex: johnskitchen, Adamssalon , ramshome etc.

year names are birthdays are usual favorites so 1976 or 0284 etc should be great picks too.
