FindTheDeal.ca is an advertising website run by two people from Orillia, Ontario. One with a Business degree and combined, we have over 50 years of experience in customer service. We are ready to launch our newly designed app that takes those clip-out-coupons and paper loyalty cards that jam up your wallet and can never be found easily at the cash register, and put them on your phone.
But to have the cash on hand to run the business in its first months, before sales can escalate, we need to raise $100,000 in start-up capital.
This capital will cover the cost of advertising our services to business owners and finding dedicated care agents within communities across Canada or this Digital Marketing revolution may not save some of the small businesses that are suffering from high advertising costs, and instead have to consider closing their doors. So we’re turning to our strongest supporters to ask for contributions. In exchange, we’re offering access to the FindTheDeal.ca Club, free services for a year, and special mention as a contributor on our website. Your contribution will help us educate business owners about Digital Marketing, search for motivated individuals, and further, it will help give small businesses the tools to survive in today’s changing economy.
You can help by:

Here’s the nitty gritty:
Hello, my name is Sarah McCunn. I’m pleased to introduce you to the newest opportunity to connect with deals in local areas; FindTheDeal.ca.
We’ve been on the directory and advertising scene for over 15 years; operating under the name All Things Marketable Inc. But lately we’ve noticed that, with the advances in smartphone technology, customers are using their mobile devices in interesting ways. They are looking for deals while they are out shopping, not just searching in weekly flyers or online ads before going out.
So, to make your life easier, we’ve taken those clip-out-coupons and paper loyalty cards that jam up your wallet and can never be found easily at the cash register, and put them on your phone!
We’ve been working with some of the best minds in the industry to bring a truly unique experience on your smartphone that can also be accessed on any web browser. From our app you will be able to, at the press of a button, search your immediate area for the deals available to you from small business owners in your community.
This allows even the busiest of shoppers to support their communities and boosts the “Shop Local” incentive that has taken over the mindset of so many people. But, we had to make this option easy to use and affordable enough to put it in the hands of busy small business owners, not just the large corporations.
A portion of funds raised on Go Get Funding will assist us in spreading the word about this innovative new option to business owners over the course of the next 6 months, by utilizing standard advertising methods. Everything that is contributed above what is required will be given to various charities to help communities across Ontario.
We strive to put as much of ourselves back into the communities we work in as possible, that’s why every month we run a contest on our website where visitors can enter to win money, with a grand prize draw, and charity support options included. If you would like to know more about the Mystery Shopper Contest please click on this link to visit our website.
We also have a strong policy that a percentage of all profits received will be re-distributed throughout the communities we work in, in the form of donations to charitable organizations, and we are currently working towards assisting Future Olympians across Canada.
To assist us in getting into every community and giving back to each one individually we need to advertise our services on the radio, television, newspapers, magazines and other ‘standard’ methods. As any business owner will tell you, this option is not easy or inexpensive. So we’re looking to you, the shoppers, to help us show business owners that you are interested in this service, and that you want to see it be made available.
