Project Description

OUR VISION

We have a dream of providing small businesses with adequate, effective, and affordable advertising. We know they are currently struggling with finding customers and spreading the word about their businesses throughout their local community. 

For example, last summer my children and I missed out on an opportunity to experience the new waterpark that opened about 20 miles away from our home.  We didn't find out that the waterpark existed until the last day of summer and it was too late to go. Oddly enough, my oldest son found out about it from videos and pictures his friends were sharing on Snapchat. That's when I got the idea for Nodat! 

Word of mouth marketing has always been the most POWERFUL form of marketing for any business but for small businesses it's often the ONLY form of marketing and advertising. So, our goal is to help businesses put more power behind this already monster of a tool by increasing it and moving it ONLINE!!!! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DIRECTION OF THE ADVERTISING MARKET 

Have you noticed how the big digital advertising players like Facebook and Google are talking more about reaching local audiences? Well, we have and we know the most important ingredient to that formula is YOU, CONSUMERS! Local communities are made up of real people who talk to each other in person and online through social media. We've seen you trying to advocate for the businesses you love in your Facebook groups and occasionally on your pages through post. We want you to keep doing that but turn it up times TEN!!!! 

We've talked to both small business owners and consumers and what we heard is that you're both having difficulty finding, connecting, and engaging with each other.  Nodat is an online Word-of-Mouth platform that answers the questions about the place you want to go before you step foot in the door. I know what you're thinking this is just another city guide app like Yelp! Um, No we are not! 

Did you know there are over 6M+ small businesses in the world and most of them will fail because they don't have the money to advertise and compete with larger businesses or national chains? It's hard to compete when someone's pocketbook is bigger than yours. Nodat evens the playing field because instead of paying for static ads posted to a platform, ads are created by customers, shared and promoted by customers!! 

Our platform offers an exchange where both businesses and consumers will come out on top. Your actions are valuable to every business. Every check-in, every video review, written feedback, photo, and social share helps a small business gain local awareness and connects them with new customers.  #DidYouNodat? Did you know you we're that important to helping local businesses succeed? 

We've set up the platform to reward you for what you do best. Advocating and evangelizing for local brands through online word of mouth! You will earn points for every action you perform to help spread the word about a local business and cash them in to redeem exclusive savings, deals, and special perks. We're talking shop a large variety of discounts right in your community.
