I was doing social media marketing for a company that sold products in retail and realized the best form of marketing our company ever received was when customers would share photos of our products. It beat all other marketing, but there wasn't a system that enabled it to happen offline.
What it does
We place a beacon at the entrance of a business. It pushes a notification to the business that the customer is there when they enter, and a notification to the customer and invites them to share a photo to PlacesVIP.CLUB and other social networks.

This is actually a simplified version of a company we're resurrecting (we followed rules-new design, new code). We're going big. Check it out: placesapp.co
