Most of us have smartphones and Tablets, we know there’s Google but not everyone makes the best out of it. People are always on the Go! People move out every day, and they look for things to get instantly at their locations.
What if I told you that there’s now a platform that solves this, where you can instantly find your needs based in your location, fast and easy? From Basic and daily things like where to eat, drink, and buy groceries, or services like hair saloon, Football viewing center, cyber cafe’s… and unlimited more.
GoKive! Is a free web based app that allows users REGISTER/FIND goods, products, places and offices. Since the web app is location based, businesses would not necessarily need a website for people to find them, they just have to join and get verified, even without verification, people who come around (Business owners) use the platform to find you, if you offer what they are searching for.
GoKive! It’s basically about things you search for every day, in your location, and provision for consumers and business (or anybody that has a product or service to render), and it’s at its simplest and seamless form.
USING THE PLATFORM to Find Your Needs takes Less than 60 Seconds
Follow the steps, quickly…
