The World Solar Navigation Challenge W.S.N.C.


SOLAR NAVIGATOR - Marketing Strategy







The WSNC's marketing message is that renewable energy is here now and can be used effectively to "achieve things previously not thought possible".


Perhaps, this describes your product or services? Are you producing the latest high tech, or electronic equipment to do things better. Are you offering a better financial service to improve the lives of your customers?


The boat will put to sea with this objective in mind, as evidence of the positive outlook of all concerned, especially prime sponsors and other contributors to the project.


The clear message is that our backers are looking to the future of mankind and take their responsibility to the environment and their fellow man just as seriously as producing high quality goods, sales and profitability.


Solar Navigator is the original proponent of a world circumnavigation using solar energy. At this time we are the global leaders on the subject which is visible in the most popular search engines (Google and Yahoo). We intend to maintain this lead and build on it for the benefit of our partners and the project.


Thus, our sponsors and associates will not only benefit from the international media coverage the World Record attempt will generate, but from the proceeding World Tour, the numerous merchandise opportunities, the documentary that will record the project progression, sharing a place in history and benefiting from prime positioning in the fastest growing advertising medium on the planet - the Internet.





We have achieved an enviable position through determination and market analysis over 5 years. We have found what works, what subjects interest our readers and have built on this information, constantly identifying and enhancing such content. This of course means keeping tabs on current events on a global basis. The rewards are that visitors keep coming back. We ask for nothing, except a visit every now and again. Our regular increase in hits is testimony to our popularity. Thus, our strategy is already working for our partners and is already performing well.


We also answer regular inquiries from our visitors and especially students interested in the subjects we feature and we tailor our service according to the needs of our surfers. We maintain free  A - Z indexes for alternative energy industry and related businesses.




Apart from the likely coverage in national newspapers and boating magazines, the subject matter is likely to feature in pioneering publications such as New Scientist, National Geographic, FHM and others.




We hope to be able to announce shortly that we will be the subject of a documentary.




We were the first to propose a world circumnavigation using a solar powered boat. After extensive analysis, we have identified the route below as likely to give us a workable speed, and provide suitable media opportunities for our sponsors.
