The holidays are here!
If you’re anything like me, you’re making gift lists, grocery lists, and wish lists, and you’re checking all of them twice. As you head out to prepare for the holidays and everything they bring, Evzdrop wants to be part of the process.
Wait… what’s “Evzdrop”?
Evzdrop is a Chicago-based iPhone app and web platform. It’s a new, next generation location-based information network that gives people an exclusive voice of real-time insight from the places they visit. The result is a more credible, actionable stream of feedback for the community of “listeners” and the businesses plugged into the Evzdrop platform. It’s not just “checking in” at places, but it’s real-time updates of what’s going on, reviews, and whatever else you want to say when you “drop” somewhere. Essentially, the idea is that if you’re in the app, you’re “eavesdropping” on conversations happening at places near you.
Evzdrop and the holiday season.
Use Evzdrop to help your fellow shoppers out by Dropping your experiences. Is the Apple Store sold out of iPad minis? Perhaps you happened to notice that Target just restocked the shelves with Furbies. Is the line at Starbucks out the door but moving quickly? Maybe the grocery store has a buy one get one free special on fruitcakes (do people really eat those things?). While you’re out and about, use Evzdrop to let Listeners know what’s going on where you’re at, and Listen while you’re Dropping, because it may just make your shopping trips easier!
Evzdrop’s Holiday Drop Quest
Between November 23rd and December 21st, Evzdrop is hosting a holiday contest! Drop at all your shopping, dining and holiday preparation locations. Use the Holiday Drop Quest list below, mentioning one of the items in your Drop, to be entered to win a number of great prizes. Each Drop, every uploaded picture, and every Drop shared on Facebook and Twitter will earn you another entry. You’ll already be out shopping, so why not Drop while you shop so you can win great stuff!?
