Overview[edit]

FinditChaseit is a local listings website that lists local business information including phone number and address while allowing the business to post updates as well. These updates can include text, events or coupons. FinditChaseit also allows businesses to connect their Facebook profiles and their email marketing to their businesses page. This way when they post on facebook or send out an email, it also posts on FinditChaseit.

FinditChaseit is also for users. It allows users to sign up through FinditChaseit or via Facebook. Users set up their location then find and "chase" their favorite businesses around them. Once added, anything a business posts while appear on the user's feed. This is very similar to Facebook and Twitter news feeds.

Local Listings[edit]

FinditChaseit differs from most local listing sites such as Citysearch or Yellow Pages because it doesn't list everything. Instead it lists more popular places in a city that are more likely to post and make them available to "chase". By focusing on location, the site enables users to always find their favorite places from anywhere and see what news or updates that place has to offer. This includes discounts, events or new products.

Deals[edit]

In 2012, FinditChaseit also a deals tab to the homepage for users. This deals tab, includes deals and discounts from Groupon and other daily deal sites. Using location, the site finds the daily deals in the users area and enables them to buy directly through the site.
