Competitive advantage

It is difficult to explain and conceptualize the enormous potential of SoapBox without understanding the scope of work that encompasses our unique software platform.

SoapBox has groundbreaking potential in location-based advertising and can become the market leader in web based retail marketing. Our platform provides retailers and advertisers with a direct marketing solution unlike any other, placing their products and advertisements right at the fingertips of our users web capable devices.

 

Although SoapBox is an inherently viral application by nature, it is designed with several viral hooks to simultaneously build its user base and generate immense advertising power.
