OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- FINDit LLC (dba FINDitKC), a digital media company centered around video, is expanding its reach for both consumers and clients by releasing a mobile application called FINDit Video & Loyalty, which can be found in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

FINDit already utilizes video, social media and FINDitKC.com to help people in and around the Kansas City metro find it, watch it, then try it; reaching hundreds of thousands through those channels. Now, with the release of the FINDit App, consumers will be able to find videos on hundreds of places to eat, drink, shop, play and live in the Kansas City area, on a mobile platform. The FINDit App also allows the consumer to earn points quickly, unlocking freebies and deals at each location by checking in, sharing and scanning QR codes. The FINDit App also has texting capabilities, allowing consumers to be the first to know when the merchant is running a deal or has important news. Consumers can either opt in by using the FINDit App or by texting keywords like FINDit, 810Zone, TheRub, or ElementFitness to “80802”. Once a consumer has opted in, it opens up the ability for merchants to text deals and other happenings at their business to their group.

“This could be a game changer,” says Chris Olsen, FINDit’s Founder and CEO. “Not only can you see a business before you try it with our videos, but also unlock a deal to entice you to try new places. The ability to earn points keeps you coming back and sharing the location with friends. This is a win-win. If you're going to jump into marketing or invest in your business, why wouldn’t you take an all-over approach? FINDit is that. We produce the video, push it on social media, post it online, and then give you a mobile presence that includes ways to secure and retain customers through texting and rewards.”

FINDit partnered with another local technology company in Kansas City to build FINDit Video & Loyalty. Moblico’s RWRDS system provided the groundwork and infrastructure to make the FINDit App happen. FINDit and Moblico plan to take the concept national.

FINDit has acquired nearly 300 clients since starting in 2011. Their video-centered approach has opened up doors to expand its service offerings over the three years, creating Social Media Management programs, Website Development, Search Engine Optimization, and Email Marketing programs. FINDit’s focus throughout growth has been to create videos for clients and then help them distribute those videos for maximum ROI. It is what led the company to create FINDitKC.com and also create a social media reach of hundreds of thousands a month. The FINDit App adds to that reach on an entirely new level. FINDit is a digital media company centered around video and the distribution of video. FINDit uses video to promote its clients, then helps distribute them on a variety of FINDit channels (called FINDit Family). We also help our clients post our videos on their own social media and website. If they do not have those avenues in place, FINDit can create and manage them for a reasonable fee. FINDit’s tagline is find it, watch it, try it… and their new campaign headline is Stay Local! Stay Loyal!. You can follow the #staylocal #stayloyal campaign on social media.
