Hookit.com expands to local shops and businesses


Hookit.com announces the launch of its new local business
service, which is designed to assist shops, retailers and service providers to
connect with its growing audience of over 700,000 action sports members.


Now, when members use Hookit’s Spots and Sessions feature
either online or from their mobile device, local retailers and shops have the
unique opportunity to be found within the spot map, as well as offer special
promotions to help drive foot traffic to their business.


The local business service includes such features as:
Targeted exposure for the local business on Hookit.com and Hookit mobile apps
for iPhone and Android. Profile used to display business information, hours of
operation, photos, videos and reviews from members.


Tools to help develop a following of local Hookit members
by posting news, events or new information about your business to interact with
members in your area and ability to setup and manage promotions a.k.a.
‘Hookups’ to attract new customers as well as set a daily budget and view
real-time reports monitoring performance.


“By harnessing our proprietary technology and sole
focus on action sports, we can effectively target and link together the
thousands of local shops, along with the deals they offer, and quickly put the
word out to our members,” said Scott Tilton, CEO of Hookit.com.


The usage of Spots & Sessions feature has exploded
since Hookit launched it in May. Adding local businesses to the mix was a
natural extension to the feature, and Hookit has already gotten an incredible
response from our pilot local shops that have tested the program.


Hookit.com initially launched the Spots & Sessions
feature in May, and most recently announced its new mobile app for iPhone and
Android. The feature allows members to use an interactive map on their computer
or mobile device to find local spots, check conditions and log their sessions.


Since launching, nearly 25,000 spots have been added and
partnerships have been created with over 100 of the best spots in the country.
Hookit partnered with Monster Energy and hit the road on June 1st
with the Spots & Sessions Tour. By September 15th the Tour will
have traveled over 11,000 miles visiting nearly 150 spots across the country.
