TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Florida startup The Daily Hundred has raised $500,000 in funding for its innovative mobile marketing platform. Francis Wisniewski, a prominent investor and business owner, who will be joining the Board of Directors, led the round. This investment will primarily help fuel the Company’s product development as well as their national sales and marketing initiatives.
The Daily Hundred’s iPhone, Android and web apps allow business owners to run real-time, location specific marketing campaigns that are optimized for mobile devices. Users can interact with a respective businesses campaign by taking a photo and submitting that photo via The Daily Hundred app. Users can win prizes ranging from $100 cash to a free product by receiving the most votes, the most shares or by taking the most creative photo. Because Daily Hundred users have significant incentives to share their photo of a brand’s product they become an extension of that brands marketing team.
“As a greater percentage of ad spend shifts to mobile, we believe mobile first companies like The Daily Hundred will benefit immensely”, said Francis Wisniewski. “The team at The Daily Hundred saw this trend close to two years ago and built an incredibly powerful platform for businesses of all sizes looking to effectively advertise on mobile devices.”
Nicholas Haase and Maxwell Finn, who met while attending Emory University, founded The Daily Hundred in early 2012. “This funding round is a powerful vote of confidence for our vision to define the future of social media and mobile marketing experiences, ” said Nick Haase, CEO of The Daily Hundred. “We experienced a tremendous amount of success during our beta test program and are excited to build on that momentum with our upcoming full-scale launch.”
The Daily Hundred Android app is currently available for free download on the Google Play Store. The Company’s iPhone and web apps are currently in private beta testing and will be released to the public in late September.
