With the proliferation of GPS systems and satellite mapping on the Internet, there is suddenly a whole new face that a business can offer to potential customers: the aerial view. When getting directions from any map software, people would more easily recognize your business if it had a sign on the roof.
There is room in this market for franchises of rooftop advertisers - those who can perfect the design, printing, & installation of billboards and rooftop signs. The signs would have to be large, durable, and weather proof. They could even be functional - being light colored to reflect the sun and save energy! (Which would be for a warm climate... If you're in a cold climate, they could be dark to absorb energy.)
One could even hook this idea up with the folks that produce map software, such that there is a hyperlink on the latitude and longitude coordinates of your business which leads to your website.
