Heelo™ World – a brave new world of digital engagement

Welcome to a whole new world of real-time proximity marketing to reach and engage your consumers.

Heelo™ is proximity engagement

At Heelo™, our mission is to go beyond the limits of traditional advertising by providing “in-the-moment” engagement to benefit both business growth and consumer satisfaction. When businesses and consumers engage on our proximity platform, we all win.

Happy Customers

Happy customers are satisfied customers. Heelo™ offers your customers an amazing real-time, in-the-moment shopping experience by saving them money on the items they desire.

Better Engagement

Create meaningful customer engagements and have them champion your store to friends/family through our in-app sharing function. This means more potential customers in the future.

Grow Your Business

Customers are more likely to reconnect and recommend to others when they have a good experience at your store. Heelo™ provides an easy and effective way to make this happen.

Mobile engagement

Heelo™ is the most innovative proximity marketing platform in the fastest growing segment of the digital advertising industry. Heelo™ has a scalable, cloud-based beacon/CRM platform and mobile app that is leading the way in the digital advertising space. Our proximity platform is designed to significantly reduce advertising budgets and increase the effectiveness of marketing efforts.

We recognize that everything is moving to mobile; print, TV and radio advertising have become less effective and well over half the consumers dedicate significant amount of their time engaging with mobile devices. Market stats prove they use mobile devices to search and compare before and while they are shopping and, in fact, many do not even see the in-store ads, because they are so engaged with their mobile devices. That is the world we live in and we can help you engage and get their attention.

Proven technology

Heelo™ began development years ago to merge the mobile and proximity technology to deliver a whole new marketing platform that is truely ahead of other technologies. We have also completed extensive market research, development and beta testing to implement the best engagement platform for both businesses and consumers.

For businesses the beacon/CRM platform is easy to use and advertisement can be changed or modified in real-time. The real-time statistical reports provide immediate measurement of the effectiveness of ad campaigns and ways to optimize for future deployment. Our mobile app engages and excites consumers at the most critical time while they are shopping in-store or nearby. Consumers love our app because it’s simple to use and respects their privacy while saving them time and money. The app’s share function can greatly increase the reach of advertisements by allowing consumers to post on social media and share with friends/family.
