Hello Local Influencers
Welcome to the Referral Economy
Locals in a Tourist Town
Thanks to you, local businesses get a lot of customers.
We like how technology can help people discover cool stuff and foster local community too.
One day, we started talking to people who get asked for recommendations a lot. Turns out, there's a ton of local influencers driving business all over town. Most of the recipients of this business have no idea just how much that word-of-mouth is sending people to their door.
Who are these Influencers we wondered? Sometimes it happens on the job; sometimes it's the nature of their job. Sometimes they are just out and about in the community when they're asked. Who doesn't like to share local knowledge with others?
Businesses are always trying to connect with these folks. They jump up and down, wave their hands in the air, invite them to dinner, and some other things that don't really work. All that jumping and waving and inviting is hard work.
There has to be a better way; and guess what? There is. It's called DropSpot. We connect the recommenders to the recommended.
Co-founders John and Ryan are based in Colorado.
DropSpot provides analytics and reporting that give you insight into who your local influencers are

Let's face it, some of the coolest spots in towns are not in the dining magazines. Why? Because they don't have to be. You might have noticed that once you Drop(a)Spot, or find another one you like, you can post whatever digital content you want inside: pictures, text, videos or documents.
Some folks have come up with some pretty interesting ideas on what do to with DropSpot when they aren't busy recommending places. Find out below:
