Where 2 Get It Launches Agency Referral Program

Agencies Earn Rewards for Adding Value to Manufacturing and Retail Websites

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - Where 2 Get It, Inc., a provider of location-based search technologies, today announced the launch of a new referral program designed to reward agencies for adding value to their retail and manufacturing Web implementations.

"Where 2 Get It just recently launched the latest versions of our Product and Business Locator services with improved emphasis on customer convenience. The trend toward Web 2.0 designs, which provide a greater level of user convenience, is particularly interesting given that brands want to differentiate themselves. The heart of what we do is technology, and partnering with the best and brightest minds allows us to offer world-class products and services," said Manish Patel, Where 2 Get It founder and CEO.

Agencies can add multiple buying options to manufacturers' websites including "Buy Online" and "Buy Local." The "Buy Online" solution provides product to product links (P2P), allowing consumers to go directly from the manufacturer's product page to an online retailer's product page so there isn't a need to do the search again. The "Buy Local" solution offers private label maps and driving directions.

Agencies can easily add private label maps and driving directions for their retail clients' websites for all of their locations. Where 2 Get It's new GeoIP technology allows locations to automatically appear based on the users' IP address. Incorporating Web 2.0 technology enables consumers to easily click and drag the map as well as use the mouse scroll to zoom in/out. Location-based coupons and events can also be added for call to action. Coverage for the US, Canada and Western Europe are available.

Where 2 Get It services also include mobile locators so that customers can conveniently use mobile devices to find locations in a matter of minutes, even when they are away from the home or office. Mobile locators include mobile browsing, SMS text messaging, interactive voice response (IVR), as well as listings on in-car and portable navigation devices.

Agencies can even help their clients dominate the local search results of major search engines like Google, Yahoo!, MSN and Ask with paid search (SEM), local submission and organic search (SEO), as well as vertical directories like YellowPages.com, Citysearch and Superpages to help drive online traffic into their local retail locations.

Where 2 Get It works with a variety of creative agencies that specialize in designing functional web sites that fulfill their client's needs. While agencies own the overall website design, many defer to search experts like Where 2 Get It for the locator technology. Flexible in its offerings, the company works behind the scenes or directly with clients to incorporate the locator functionality. Where 2 Get It's locator solutions provide additional value to the customer's site.

Agencies can earn up to a 10 percent referral fee for new clients as well as five percent for upgrades and renewals. Katherine Hills, owner and managing director, Krush Creative Group, Irvine, California, said, "We feel confident offering Where 2 Get It solutions to our customers because of Where 2 Get It's proven track record and impressive client roster. The Where 2 Get It team is easy to work with, and they always make the goals of my agency and my client's projects the top priority."
