Trapit


Trapit is measurable, fast and affordable content discovery, curation and delivery made easy.

 

Curating quality content creates thought leadership, captures market intelligence, fosters loyalty, and most importantly–builds audience engagement.  But the ability to rise above the din is more difficult than ever before:

 

Every minute 28,125 blog posts go live on the internet and 204,166,167 emails are delivered. Standing out in a sea of content is more important than ever.

 
The half life of a content post is 3 hours on a social network. Social is the dominant channel for content consumption and most brands struggle to keep up.

 

Individuals spend 5x more on their mobile devices than they did two years ago. Businesses are in a constant battle to publish mobile ready content.

 

So everybody is curating, but finding relevant and unique content is time consuming and inefficient while publishing to multiple social, mobile and web channels is difficult – and costly.

 

Most importantly, how do you measure your impact? What is your content’s ROI?

 

Trapit makes it easy, fast and affordable to discover, curate, and publish content – and deliver the metrics to prove your return on investment.
