What does the FindTheBiz App do?

The App is a business locator for consumers and a fantastic marketing and promotion device for business owners. The FTB App displays businesses by location, GPS. Consumers search by type of business, only. Search results will display matching member businesses. Searches can also be made by name, city, state and/or zip code. Search results display icons which are associated with business search results helping to explain what is in the business profile. The numbers next to the icons denote sale(s), event(s), photos, video(s) and testimonial(s). These are located at the bottom of each member listing if present within the biz profile. Clicking on the business name opens the business profile for the user to view.  Depending upon the level of membership a business profile may contain an extensive or limited business or personal bio, photo(s), video(s), sale(s) and/or special event(s).

When the app is opened it displays businesses that are closest to the user’s device. The FTB App provides a great way for your business to stay on the radar of consumers in your community. It works most effectively for business owners who seek and need more control via direct advertising to consumers. Business owners can keep their business out front by having frequent sales or hosting or sponsoring events as often as they wish without worry of sharing or splitting their profits.
