SIOUX FALLS, SD USA – (January 8, 2021) – Marketing organization AGE Media & Promotion of Sioux Falls, SD, reseller of TapOnIt Sioux Falls, is pleased to announce that Mark Nelson of Sioux Falls was the winner of TapOnIt’s nationwide $5,000 Giveaway. The giveaway was one of several nationwide contests and giveaways TapOnIt held in 2020. Nelson’s win was the result of a random drawing of the 57,000 submissions for the giveaway.

The giveaway contest gave one lucky winner $5,000 in cash. Nelson said, “I shared the contest with family and friends and continued to get additional entries as they signed up for TapOnIt and a chance to win.” He added, “I love TapOnIt and use many of the offers— from Jersey Mike’s and Eastway Bowl. My wife and her coworkers use them as well.”

AGE Media & Promotion founders/ owners Garrett and Mindy Gross launched TapOnIt, a text-based platform that delivers offers from local restaurants and businesses directly to consumer phones, in Sioux Falls in July 2020. TapOnIt specializes in working with locally owned businesses to reach consumers who have 100% opted in to receive local offers via text. Over 2,000 Sioux Falls area consumers receive texts from TapOnIt Sioux Falls. The mobile marketing platform makes it easy for consumers to share great offers with their friends via Facebook, text, Twitter, and Facebook Messenger and to redeem them at the business’ location. TapOnIt Sioux Falls sends out 1-2 text messages per week that includes 3-4 different money saving offers from businesses. Some of TapOnIt Sioux Falls’ advertisers have included Jacky’s Restaurant, Pita Pit, Eastway Bowl, Escape 605, Climberz, Pizza Ranch, and many more.

Under the TapOnIt advertising model, members join to receive image-based text messages featuring local offers. (Text TAPONIT to 82928 to see how it works.) There is no charge for members (beyond any applicable carrier message and data rates) and businesses advertising are charged for the number of members reached. Text messaging has become an effective form of communication; a report commissioned by Singlepoint found that 98% of text messages get opened and read— including 90% which are opened within three minutes of receipt.


TapOnIt was launched in April 2015 by digital advertising veteran Katie Wilson, and consumer behavior professional Sara Castillo, in the Quad Cities. In less than six years, the company has expanded its reach into 41 markets across 19 states. The TapOnIt community has over 315,000 opted-in members.

“Because our platform is text-based with no apps to download or update, we experience less than a 2% monthly churn rate compared to 70% churn for apps in their first 90 days,” said Wilson. “And our members redeem the offers they receive at rates of up to 11%.”
