Frequently Asked Questions

We have many creative ways to promote your business. One of the most powerful we propose is our HOTFINDS programs.

The concept is to generate "word-of-mouth" advertising and drive traffic to your business, and is already showing impressive results as it gets increasingly popular.
 
Local merchants give us quality products in limited amounts, to give away to our members for FREE or at a massive discount. We then send digital vouchers to our members through our app (Free membership), and they must be among the first at the merchant’s location to redeem the voucher. All they need is to show the voucher on their phone. No need to print! 
 
We then prompt our members to share their experience on their social media. We then reward them for sharing.
 
Members get free stuff. Merchants get free promotion to thousands of our members and increased traffic. It’s a Win-Win.

sxmFinder is the first web-based app ever engineered to fit the needs of an island like Sint Maarten. We have innovated new ways to promote local businesses, while introducing SXM residents to companies they may not have ever noticed or known of before.

Furthermore, most local business don’t have proper online presence (if any at all) and are way to busy to promote themselves online. And today, that’s where it counts most. Sure, there’ always Facebook... But Facebook is not ideal for real business promotion. Ads get lost and missed in the midst of all the other social notifications that your audience receives each day. Also, not every merchant knows how to use it efficiently and keep it up to date.

For this reason we innovated a new platform to:

1- Be searchable online (Google and sxmFinder search)

2- Promote their business effectively and affordably

3- Provide them with a sxmFInder representative who will assist and do the work for them. We have many creative ways to promote your business. One of the most powerful we propose is our HOTFINDS programs.

Some would ask, “what is the difference between sxmFinder and any other Online directory?” 

 

Other directories allow you to search for companies and/or the categories or sub-categories they belong in. sxmFinder allows you to search for specific retail products & services available on the island.
