Problem

Why is it that I hear of great local events and entertainment only after its' occurred, or, that I'm not aware of restaurant specials, and business promotions that could have saved me money?

How about the fun things to do that would enrich my life experiences?

I've missed out. Had I only known.

I'm spontaneous, so I crave real-time information. If something piques my interest, I can head out the door within a moment's notice.

With local happenings, I can't always rely on traditional entertainment publications or newspapers. Even my live social media event feeds have not much to offer.

Vision

Fun things-to-do and money saving business promotions happen daily. Think of a community based publishing system so friends, and their friends, local businesses, event coordinators, and citizens could share this information, in real-time.

"Share Your Community."

Solution

So, I developed Seeingit.com - it's what to see and do!

It's a self-serve, real-time publishing platform, and a destination website featuring local video.

I made it form-based. Type into a provided form, attach a video or picture, and submit.

It's devised for locals, businesses and event coordinators, "the Community."

The primary function is to promote and create awareness of local events and business specials. With Amazon Alexa, the virtual voice, information request assistant, I'm providing Communities access to publishing via the Alexa ecosystem.

By doing so, Seeingit.com is offering to the public, latest digital and social marketing information.

Users can also produce keyword searchable posts on Twitter and Facebook, @Seeinglocal, without needing an account.

For Amazon Alexa, download the free Amazon Alexa App. Search and download the free Alexa Skill, Seeingit.com - it's what to see and do!

Launch Alexa, and it works, for example, like this:

Alexa, ask "what's happening" tonight in Tucson Arizona for "dinner specials"...or, "live music."

Or, Alexa, ask "what's happening" Saturday for "open houses."

Locals can post to Calendar of Events. Businesses can link their Seeingit.com media pages to their websites. 

Free for locals.

For Businesses, a free listing, and a 14-day trial of a premium publishing experience is provided (no credit card request). A 3-month, $1 per day, $99 extension reminder email is sent offering the Seeingit.com multi-media marketing system to fold into, and help their efforts.

PayPal and the 20% instant cash payout system. To facilitate the Seeingit.com 'Share Your Community" program, all PayPal members can represent and sell Seeingit.com ads and services, having instant availability to earned fees.

Purpose

Mindful of my own social ambitions, I envisioned an accessible crowd-sourced interactive business and community promotions system that creates awareness, jobs and economic benefit to local businesses, while also enriching Users with a pleasant and more rewarding lifestyle.

Mission

My goal is to provide a successful platform that serves local citizens, and business entities in communities everywhere.

"Do you know your community? Share it."

I want to provide, through Seeingit.com, a life changing, daily used utility.

Automation measures were implemented to grow and scale Seeingit.com efficiently, and lean.

Many businesses are rendered and displayed automatically, like a digital directory. They can simply claim their listing, and begin a free 14-day business promotion trial offer.

It's prudent to seek alliances and strategic partnerships for them of whom, and their members, could greatly benefit.

The Market

Potentially, restaurant, hotel and business associations, food and liquor distributors, chambers of commerce, city state and national business administrations, SCORE, Microsoft, Amazon Alexa, PayPal, Uber, Lyft, Ebay, Airbnb and others could benefit.

A Seeingit.com probable user demographic in the USA alone is adults 20 years to 65 years of age, or about 192.72 million people,[1] and about 30 million small businesses, and 1 million franchise businesses.[2]

In the third quarter of 2018, there were 254 million PayPal accounts[3] active worldwide. Anyone with a PayPal account, has the potential of being a Seeingit.com local representative. If willing to share their community, they can earn 20% of their advertising sales and services proceeds.

Acquiring two tenths 2/10th's of 1% of available USA businesses paying $1 per day, projects revenue of $62,000 per day.

Acquiring one percent, 1% of businesses in the USA alone, projects revenue for Seeingit.com at $310,000 per day.

Worldwide, there about 3 billion monthly active social media users.[4] Seeingit.com works just the same in the USA, as it will in foreign Countries.

Expansion is imminent.

Seeingit.com - it's what to see and do, a lifestyle community network, is poised to makes life experiences more fulfilling for everyone anywhere.
