So, how did it all get started…

GetintheLoop was founded the summer of 2011 on the premise that golf courses needed to fill tee times, instantly. Due to cancellations, bad weather or seasonal fluctuations, golf courses had unused time slots that we could help fill through targeted text message deals to local golfers. With a $500 budget, our founder Matt Crowell created a simple website, attracted eight golf courses in the Okanagan, started sending text message offers to locals and quickly realized success golf courses were seeing with the redeemed offers.

Mid 2013, we released the first version of our mobile app and expanded our service to restaurants, spas, wineries, retail stores, sporting organizations and businesses that have a need to sell excess inventory. A year later, we made our first market expansion and, based on learning in the Okanagan, recognized a need to quickly grow an audience while also attracting businesses to promote offers to this audience.

Now members enjoy exclusive deals all over Western Canada. We’re in 9 cities and growing. Matt’s on the road spreading the word about GetintheLoop and working with amazing partners like Bell Media, Glacier Media and the WHL.

Why we think Mobile Marketing is where it’s at…

Well is your phone within reach? Then you’ve just answered the question. Consumers have smartphones and more and more they’re making decisions to buy based on data their phone is giving them. Being smartphones lovers ourselves, we wanted to create something that would be helpful to consumers to make good decisions on how they spend their hard earned money. By offering a service that is easy for both businesses and consumers to use, it’s the best of both worlds. We love helping businesses become better marketers and seeing consumers enjoy new experiences at businesses they may have not known about.
