Drop a Marker. Win Free Gear.


BaseMap Introduces New Patent-Pending GearDrop Feature

Bothell, WA – (November 9, 2019) – BaseMap has released its newest feature: GearDrop. This patent-pending feature allows app users to drop a marker within the weekly GearDrop area for a chance to win prizes from ZEISS, Hoyt, SPOT, Traeger and many other outdoor, hunting and fishing brands. 

“I wanted to find a way to not only provide the best hunting app on the market but also give back to our users in a way that can further help them be more successful in their outdoor adventures.” Said Jeffrey Balch, Founder, BaseMap, Inc. “We value the overwhelming support of our users and the creation of GearDrop was built to add an extra layer of enjoyment to those that appreciate the outdoors.” 

After extensive app development and beta testing, GearDrop has launched and allows any app user to win free gear by simply adding a marker in the drop area. The contest will run weekly, Wednesday to Monday, with new gear being awarded each week. To win, all you have to do is play! 

Each week, BaseMap will pinpoint a new GearDrop area which users can access via the GearDrop icon in the app; click the icon to be automatically positioned over the drop zone. To win prizes, click the plus sign and simply drop a GearDrop Marker in the highlighted area. You can zoom in and pan around the dedicated GearDrop area to select where you want to drop your marker; once placed, it can be moved any time prior to that week’s drop. At the end of the contest week, the user with the marker closest to the BaseMap drop location is the winner of the grand prize. Users with the second and third closest marker will receive a BaseMap gear package that includes a shirt, hat and sticker. To view the grand prize for each week, simply click anywhere within the GearDrop area. 

GearDrop is a way for brands large and small to reach a highly targeted audience of hunters and anglers. Each week a brand will get 100% share of voice to all users within the BaseMap ecosystem giving them another channel to share their latest product(s) and or to build brand awareness. Brands are encouraged to reach out to sales@basemap.com to discuss how they can take advantage of this high value opportunity to reach their desired audience. 

GearDrop is available for both Basic and Pro BaseMap app users and does not require a paid subscription to play. You can participate in GearDrop simply by downloading the free iOS or Android mobile application on the App or Google Play store.
