Kelowna, Canada – May 6, 2020 – GetintheLoop, a leading shop local platform, announced the release of their Community Partnership Program, a unique partnership between Chamber of Commerce, business associations and municipalities, to provide free access to their mobile offers platform, empowering local businesses to better communicate their open services and products to nearby consumers.
Designed to bridge the gaps in traditional local media and mobile marketing, GetintheLoop offers local residents the opportunity to easily discover local businesses, receive relevant promotions and support locals, easier than ever before. To date, the GetintheLoop platform has been offered to over 20,000 local businesses in communities from coast to coast to coast.
In a world of increasing physical separation, the need to support local businesses and the communities they are a part of is urgent, and since 2016 GetintheLoop has been about connecting local businesses and local consumers through our shop local platform.
Brian Shifman, President & CEO of the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce said, “This app will promote the Vaughan business community by enabling our members to shop locally during these extremely challenging times where physical distancing is the norm. We are pleased to expand our support by giving Vaughan businesses access to GetintheLoop’s platform to help maintain business continuity and promote e-commerce.”
GetintheLoop’s mobile features include:
- Dynamic offers: Businesses can use custom features to promote products and services through categories, maps, push notifications, and daily emails.
- Local loops: Users can locate nearby merchants to support local businesses. The app identifies the most accurate business offers and information.
- In app contesting: Local users get access contesting from local businesses to win gift cards and specials to promote shopping local.
- Measurable results: Businesses get access to analytics to understand how many locals have seen their business, engaged with it, and actioned any offers.
- Live feeds: Partners in local communities can receive a live feed of offers from local businesses to promote on their websites and apps, providing further exposure for local merchants.
Trevor Lewington, CEO at Economic Development Lethbridge, AB stated, “The Lethbridge Region Economic Recovery Task Force recently surveyed area businesses and 41% estimate they can survive no more than 3 months in the current climate without additional support. Bold decisive action from all levels of government combined with practical training, advice, and tools like this will be key to enabling future success for our business leaders and entrepreneurs.”
The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce along with similar organizations in Langley BC, Regina SK, Spruce Grove AB, North York ON and Halifax NS, recently announced their involvement in the Community Partnership Program by providing free access for small businesses in their regions.
GetintheLoop CEO, Matt Crowell says, “I’m proud that our platform will help small businesses in communities all across Canada communicate critical information like if they’re open and how people can support them with the ability to create strong, measurable offer campaigns to drive commerce”.
