I'm always looking for new and helpful apps and I happened across an up and coming app in the local news.
Stealz is a growing company based in Raleigh, NC. I was intrigued by the concept so I reached out to Stealz and spoke with Jody Cumberpatch, Director of Marketing & Content.
Since learning more about the app, I've been trying it out and am excited to share what I've discovered with my readers.
What is Stealz?
How does Stealz work?
Simply put, Stealz rewards you whenever you check-in at a business through the app and when you share a photo on your favorite social media site (also through the app).
For example, rather than just checking in on Facebook at a restaurant, you let your friends know where you are using the Stealz app.
Another great feature is it shows you all the nearby participating businesses. This is a helpful tool if you're deciding where to go.
How am I "rewarded?"
How does the point system work?
What do I get in return for the points I accrue?
What if I'm traveling and not able to earn enough points or I'm only visiting a business once?
What businesses are part of the Stealz network?
Where do I get the app?
What I like about Stealz.
This app is a lot of fun. I love being rewarded for checking in at a business. Businesses love it because the app turns customers into a social media marketing team. Stealz is truly a win-win situation.
What I especially love as a travel writer is the opportunity to receive Instant Stealz. If I'm dining at a restaurant in a new town I may not be back, but it's fun being rewarded then and there for Tweeting about my visit. And who knows, my check-in may inspire you to visit!
You get rewards for advertising. Each time you check-in at a business using social media you're also giving publicity to that business by telling your friends. Why not make that check-in count? Stealz makes it a simple 3-step process; visit, share, reward.
Check out this app and let me know what you think. I love hearing from readers!
