Think Local. Stay Connected.

March 19th, 2020 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

GetintheLoop Launches $10,000 Community Investment Program – Helping Support Small Businesses 

As a technology company, our team at GetintheLoop has always tried to think of a better way to do things through the tech we build. Our original purpose was to use local offers to connect people with business in local communities. But in a time like this, we are reminded that technology can be better utilized to support what really matters, our neighbours and the communities as a whole. We need to think local more than ever before while finding ways to stay connected

Thinking local can mean looking for opportunities to support the small businesses in our neighbourhoods and one another. In these times consider local businesses that offer pick up and delivery first, and you can help support other small businesses by purchasing gift cards now for use later. 

Using technology we can stay connected by checking in on a neighbour, your friends, and family, It might mean picking something up for someone who can’t, sharing a kind word, or socially sharing a local business who is open.

Together if we think local, and stay connected we help one another get through this and help our communities recover sooner. 

Our team felt called into action when the world came to a pause and small businesses across the country were left scrambling to find ways to survive with the hopes to one day thrive again.   Our company is now gearing up to adapt to help local businesses everywhere connect to their community and inspire consumers to think local first, not just now but always.

As a first step, GetintheLoop is investing $10,000 in the local communities we serve.   Rewarding over 500 local GetintheLoop Members to support over 500 local businesses. All in an effort to remind communities to Think Local and Stay Connected to local businesses now, and in the future.

With the support of over 125 local GetintheLoop entrepreneurs in 63 markets across Canada, we will run three weekly contests in each market to reward members with gift cards to support a local business. 

For more information on this initiative, or how to get involved, please reach out to us at info@getintheloop.ca If you are looking to participate in receiving local rewards download our app here.

Equality Matters. Women Belong Here.

March 6th, 2020 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

At GetintheLoop, I’m continually inspired by the diversity of opinions and cultures that are joining our team.  It makes us think differently, both for the betterment of our team and for our company as a whole. 

But there is a problem with the diversity and equality in our industry. The technology space, and in particular tech start-ups, have been traditionally dominated by males.  In fact, as recently as 2014, Apple’s workforce was 70% male.  

This is shocking to me. As a father of two young girls, I feel it’s important for them and their peers to have role models and opportunities in all industries. Especially technology. 

In our company we have three female developers in an engineering team of 13 (23%).  In the last month we’ve had 57 candidates apply for our API Developer roles, where only 4 were female.  Our Senior Mobile Developer roles had 36 candidates with only 2 female applicants.  

Why is this the case? Is it the lack of female role models & mentors? Gender bias? The perception of the industry? The education system?

A 2018 diversity study showed that:

  • Only 20% of all tech jobs were held by women.
  • Only 5% of startup founders were women.
  • Facebook’s women in tech was 22%.
  • Women formed 30.9% of Google’s employees.

Some progress has been made, but clearly not enough. 

Today 38% of our overall company is female and 43% of our local franchise owners are female. This is a start, but with only 29% of our leadership team being female, that needs to change too. 

We’ve made a pledge to consciously seek out a highly diverse team. This not only means gender equality, but also creating an environment that is inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community and the six different nationalities represented in our company today.  We will continue to work on creating better mentoring opportunities, training, and equal paths to promotions and recruitment. It’s a challenge we are up for and it’s unquestionably worth the effort for everyone involved.  

If you want to be in technology and are part of the minority, call us, we need to talk

Why a Sense Of Community is Important

March 6th, 2020 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

Why did you choose to live where you are now? Was it the unique and vibrant Culture? Local eateries and shops? Nearby schools and friendly neighbours? Communities play an important role in every part of our lives and having a sense of community unites us. We share a community at work, in the sports teams we support or the artists we listen to, in our friends and families, our neighbourhoods and even the eateries we go to on a regular basis. Being a part of a community can make us feel as though we are a part of something greater than ourselves.

Through our community connections program GetintheLoop has partnered with over 90 local associations and nonprofits supporting their grassroots efforts across Canada. Check out some of them you can find on the app today.

6 Local Loops For Your 2020 Goals

January 21st, 2020 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

Another year is underway, as we transition into 2020 we start developing new goals, hopes, and dreams that we want to achieve. Each year we reflect on years passed and create a list of improvements, changes, or “resolutions” we want to make. Whether it’s getting back into the gym, eating healthier, traveling, trying something new, or saving money; millions of people make these New Year’s resolutions, in hope that it will spark a positive change in their lives.

Now, the hard part about these resolutions that we continuously create, is sticking to them for the year’s entirety. Humans are creatures of habit, it’s just part of our nature. We like consistency and familiarity, we depend on the actions and routines we have unconsciously formed. The thought of a new year is motivating, encouraging us to try and form new habits with an end goal in sight. It is suggested that people have a difficult time adopting new habits because they don’t understand the structure of how a habit is formed.

According to Charles Duhigg, all habits start with a 3-step psychological pattern called a “habit loop.” The first step is where a cue prompts your brain to let a certain behavior unfold. The second step is recognizing the routine this behavior creates. The third step is the reward, or “something that your brain likes that helps it remember the ‘habit loop’ in the future.”

Let’s kickstart your “habit loop” and get your New Year’s resolutions in motion with the help of our Local Loops.

health-active-gym-workout

Things To Do. We always tell ourselves that we want to try something new, but sometimes we don’t know what that “something new” is. In this Loop, you can discover an assortment of offers for local activities, events, and shows.

shoppinh

Shopping. We can help you save money, the best way we know how! With offers and deals. In your local shopping Loop find offers with savings on all your local shopping needs.

“Habits aren’t destiny — they can be ignored, changed or replaced. But it’s also true that once the loop is established and a habit emerges, your brain stops fully participating in decision-making. So unless you deliberately fight a habit — unless you find new cues and rewards — the old pattern will unfold automatically.” – Charles Duhigg

Let 2020 be your cue to check those resolutions off your list and complete them to their full potential!

At GetintheLoop, we encourage you to use your Local Loop offers to create new routines and to reward yourself in the process.

Hillside Shopping Centre achieves digital marketing success as longtime GetintheLoop partner

October 15th, 2019 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

By signing up with GetintheLoop, the Hillside Shopping Centre in Victoria, BC, proved that it was ahead of the digital curve.

Hillside is a 589,000 square foot regional shopping centre with 110 shops and service providers, anchored by retailers such as Canadian Tire, Shoppers Drugmart, Thrifty Foods, Marshalls and Sport Chek. 

Sound Bite: Recognizing Importance of a Mobile Presence


Back in 2015, other shopping centres were trying to create their own apps to reach digital customers. Hillside’s administrative team, however, realized this would be a costly venture and they wouldn’t have the infrastructure to support it. After being pitched on GetintheLoop by a team including Founder and CEO Matt Crowell, Hillside recognized the value in joining an all-in-one shopping app with an affordable monthly fee.

“Matt’s certainly got this infectious personality,” Hillside marketing director Michele Paget said. “He came in and did his pitch and we definitely loved the idea: the selling features of the app and the opportunity for our retailers to reach new markets.

“With more than 30 million mobile users in Canada alone, it was clear to us where our customers were getting their information from and it wasn’t from the little print ads that we were producing.”

Hillside originally signed on with GetintheLoop for a six-month period. With this technology being new to the shopping centre, it relied on the support of GetintheLoop. Paget said the company’s skilled support team helped Hillside and its retailers become familiar with creating/editing offers and viewing offer analytics.

Hillside’s retailers found that the features of GetintheLoop’s mobile offers platform were superior to other methods they had been using. 

Some retailers had relied on an email database to distribute offers, but ended up reaching the same customers over and over again. GetintheLoop’s ever-expanding membership base helped them attract new customers. 

Another popular trend among the shopping centre’s retailers had been using printed coupons, but customers would often forget about these coupons until they had expired and would get angry when they couldn’t redeem them. By using GetintheLoop, retailers could ensure there were always active offers up on the platform.

Once its six month term with GetintheLoop was up, Hillside was eager to remain on the platform and is still a satisfied business partner to this day. There are now over 40 retailers at Hillside utilizing GetintheLoop, which has created a digital marketplace for the shopping centre’s customers.

“Since signing on to GetintheLoop, my marketing budget has literally flipped upside down,” Paget said. “I used to have my print and radio costs and now it’s all about social media, my website and GetintheLoop.”

Hillside has worked hard to promote its involvement on the platform throughout the shopping centre. Hillside installed a massive floor decal to identify all the retailers that have signed onto the platform and has also promoted active retailers on its website. Information about GetintheLoop is listed on all the shopping centres’s directory boards and there are visual identifiers located throughout the building.

Sound Bite: GetintheLoop – Solid Platform + Amazing Support


“When people are coming into the shopping centre, they want to know about GetintheLoop and how they can download it right away and start accessing offers,” Paget said. 

“We’re in a unique spot as we’re right in the middle of the University of Victoria and Camosun College. The students love GetintheLoop and so we always work with them to try and make sure they know we have GetintheLoop in the shopping centre.”

As Paget explains, one of the added bonuses of being a GetintheLoop partner is that the platform has been a great tool for Hillside to entice new retailers to set up shop.”

“When we are in leasing meetings, I can say to a client, ‘Here are your marketing opportunities that we provide at no cost to you’,” Paget said. “Every retailer is looking to attract new customers. By offering a great marketing tool like GetintheLoop to retailers, it attracts them to the shopping centre.”

GetintheLoop, Canada’s leading mobile offers platform, gives businesses the ability to effectively reach local customers right on their smartphones. Learn more about the exciting opportunity to sign your business onto the platform.

GetintheLoop is Perfect for Scrolling/Swiping Smartphone Users

October 8th, 2019 Posted by blog, Company No Comment yet

To create the ultimate user experience for today’s smartphone users, it’s crucial for an app to incorporate scrolling and swiping functions. 

One study has shown that the typical smartphone user will scroll between 201.48 and 257.75 times per day – that’s 5.03 miles per year! People love to scroll through content – whether they’re browsing social feeds or news sites, or shopping via a mobile device – because they can effortlessly browse and don’t have to rely on page up and down buttons to navigate through an app.

Swiping is a popular feature that many associate with the dating site Tinder: users view photos of fellow users and swipe right if they’re interested in meeting them and swipe left if they’re not. This function is also being incorporated into news and shopping sites. In an article titled The Psychology of Swiping in Apps, it’s noted that the left-right orientation of swipping aligns with the way people read and visualize time.

GetintheLoop, Canada’s leading mobile offers platform, was designed for those who love to scroll and swipe. Creating the ultimate user experience is top of mind for our product development team and this means ensuring a seamless browsing experience.

After selecting their location and the shopping category they’re interested in, members can scroll through a list of offers and pick ones that interest them. After tapping an offer, members can scroll to view more details, view the location of the business and redeem the offer. If a member comes across an offer of interest but would like to keep browsing, they can save the offer to easily view it later.

If a member comes across a business they’re interested in, they can swipe right to view all the offers that business currently has on the platform. The member can continue scrolling down the list of other offers without swiping back to the left. The swipe function can also be used to view the multiple locations an offer is available, if applicable.

Check out the video below to see how easy it is for members to scroll and swipe their way through the GetintheLoop app:

The quality user experience of the app ensures all business partners that members will easily be able to find information on their company, view their offers and take action. Learn more about the exciting opportunity to sign your business onto the platform.
