Actually, it’s time for Petal to have a new city map. The chamber office and city hall are completely out of maps and have been for quite a while. The chamber board of directors have discussed this issue several times over the past 4 years. It was the consensus that people don’t use printed maps anymore. We believed that instead they rely on GPS technology to get them from point A to point B. However, that is not the case. The chamber office has had consistent requests for a city map for the past few years.
The fact is that a map is not about how to get from one point to another. People look at maps to get an overview of the entire area. They want to get familiarized.
So, we are moving ahead with the publication of a new map. But wait, this project will have some additional perks that keep up with newer technologies. There will be an interactive iMap for mobile devices. Anyone can use the iMap to find restaurants, shopping areas, local parks and recreation areas. Advertisers in the digital GoGuide® will be linked to their website, giving readers one-click access to your business.
We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Lunar Cow Publishing, a firm specializing in marketing, for the 2018 Petal Area Chamber of Commerce Map. We are excited about the opportunities this new map will offer to our local businesses. The 2018 Petal Area Chamber of Commerce Map is a primary fulfillment piece for chamber inquiries and will be the first resource that many visitors, community and business members use when planning a visit or move to the Petal area.
