Support All Things Local App!

What is this QC Explore Local Web App About?

Due to most recent events, our team has been working diligently in putting together an all-in-one app featuring all things locally found here in the QCA! It is our mission to continue to help unite and encourage the support of our local businesses through this very difficult time. We believe this app will be the best means in doing so. 

What makes Our Progressive App so Special?

Our app allows anyone to quickly load, view, save and share across all platforms, no matter the device: Computer, Tablet or Phone. This web app bypasses the typical requirements of having to go to Google Play or the Apple Store to be downloaded. Our Progress Web App can be instantly saved to any mobile device's home screen and appear just as a native app would, icon and all.

Simple to Share!

Since this is an advanced progressive web app, sharing this app is as simple as sharing out our direct application link:

We also have a QR Code that will instantly load this app to any phone, when scanned, making this incredibly easy to access and share out. 

In addition to this, once loaded and saved to the phone directly, sharing is as simple as holding down the icon to be shared out via email, messages or how you so choose. 

We know this app will remain a vital resource long after this pandemic is over with. 

However, we do recognize the immediate need and importance of having digital presence in a world where it is essential in serving people from a distance and have considered the following.

Using this app will enable your customers to safely and instantly connect with the critical details of your business as well as making it easy to share out endless amount of times to others. 

Local Find Now wants you to know we are working hard to get this Explore App in the hands of locals all over the Quad Cities & Surrounding Areas.

​As we move forward with our launch of this progressive local app, we have several campaign ideas to help get this app into the hands of as many users as possible...we will do as much as we feasibly can but understand this will be exponential with the help from you.

Some ideas we intend on doing are giveaway gift card contests from our local businesses, to providing free decals and stickers featuring a QR Code to make this a hands free type of application.

These decals will be given to anyone that would like to help with this movement of supporting local, along with doing social media profile frames and posts. These are just to name a few.  

We know this will be a group effort from both locals and businesses alike. Please let’s band together and make this an app people can rely on when connecting with their favorite local establishments - known and unknown.

In addition to the above, we are for a limited time, providing free basic listings to all local business that apply below through this simple form. 

**There are of course other upgraded options to leverage more presence on our app but we want to be able to help out as many businesses as we possibly can during this time of need.

We Know Local Because

Being a locally owned business, we understand the value and need for a strong online presence. Local Find Now strives to provide the most innovative online marketing tools that are effective and affordably priced.

We provide a wide range of services, both for free and paid. If you are not aware yet, we have a local community of followers on Facebook and Instagram where we update multiple times a day. We also have a local resource/directory site that is dedicated to our beloved Quad Cities.

We also have many other types of products and services to help locally owned businesses leverage their online space and modernize their marketing needs. One is developing these amazing progressive web apps for businesses...converting your business to be on a mobile friendly, online platform that instantly connects with your customers in the most convenient, simple and affordable means possible!

We guarantee that we have tools that you didn’t even know existed! We know this because we have developed them ourselves to problem solve the every day challenges faced by locally owned small businesses.


What Is A Progressive App?

We've gone over some of what a Progressive app is about here but if you'd like know more, we've created a page dedicated to breaking down why we feel this is the better option for most small businesses and how often times better than a native store app. One main reason being the costs, as this style app can save businesses several thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars! Not to mention the time that is involved in developing them. (For example, if we would have chooses a native app option we would still be months out before being able to get this to you!)

Is This Really For Free & For How Long?

Absolutely! We will make this be a complimentary service for as long as we possibly can. Keep in mind however that there is a small team of us working the hours of making this free service happen. In any case, we will always have our Free Directory option available that our app links to. We are here to serve you and doing our best to fill a need we feel, needs to be filled. 

How long will it take for my business to get added?

We will do our best to get these up right away. Most times it will take only a day or two but as we get busier with adding more and more, this time frame will obviously increase due to volume alone. However, if you do not see your business added after a weeks time feel free to reach out to us. 

What is the best way to share this out?

There are many ways to easily share this application to others. However, we are in the process of compiling a special page with professionally made up graphics to help you share this app through social media and email or text. There are a multitude of ways to be able to do it all comes down to which option works best for you.

How Do I Get Free Decals or Stickers?

These are still in the works. Simply make sure, when filling out our form, to check off that you'd be interested in receiving one to have for your window or door as soon as they become available. In which point, we will connect with you to either mail one out or deliver them. 

Can I get my information updated?

Absolutely. Keep in mind we prioritize new businesses over changes but as with how listings work...if you do not see changes within a work weeks time, please feel free to reach out to us. We do have in the works a way for users to be able to update their own information for when they need to.

What Happens to my Details after this limited free time is over?

All businesses will remain available on our directory website as a basic listing, in which our app will be designed to link out to for the overflow of businesses that are being added. Note that we are only doing a set amount of direct listed to our app listings. The rest will be added to our directory site and simply linked out from our app.

What are your upgraded services with this app?

We are in the process of compiling the pricing and structure of our upgrades. As we have time to get this completed there will be ways to advertise on this app on specific pages as well as being on our deals page and other resource links.
