Hands on Flapit
First off, let me tell you a bit about Flapit. Flapit (www.flapit.com) was founded in 2014 and is the first social media counter focused on businesses and connected to all major social media platforms. Engaging and easy to use, Flapit helps businesses to get offline customers to join their online community. In 2015, Flapit started branching out into complementing its hardware solution with a growing software suite including free widgets like the virtual Flapit for Flapit customers, a custom short URL service (bla.st) which can be integrated into use of the Flapit and now Adpow (www.adpow.com).
FlapIt is targeting its product at SMBs and brands that can display messages to offline customers but also influencers who engage their online audiences through the Flapit, particularly in video content.
There are a few physical social counters on the market, but Flapit seems to be the most advanced one yet.
Social Media Platforms
Flapit supports of all the major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Instagram, YouTube, Dianping, Zomato, VKontakte, Foursquare, Swarm and Tripadvisor. Even the logos from these platforms can be displayed on your counter. You are also able to customize your Flapit with your own logo and branding as there is a blank flap available that allows for thin, cut stickers to be applied, in theory. But please note that opening the device to do this automatically voids the limited 1-year warranty. We recommend instead getting in touch with the Flapit regarding the customization options they offer.
How Does It Work?
The counter is controlled via FlapIt’s website, where you need to register your device to gain access to your Flapit Counter Dashboard. From here you can setup your Flapit with all your needs. As all you need to do is connect FlapIt to the same network as your phone or computer. Once you have connected your device, it takes a few minutes to sync with you social media platform. They have a handy online guide available at www.flapit.com/flapit-guide.com.
You are able to display your page likes or to show a promotional price for a particular item as it can display metrics up to 999,999. And if you have a page with more than 1 million likes, (we clap our hands and have huge respect for your brand, by the way) Flapit will be able to display that amount too! For example if you have 4,147,000 likes Flapit can display it as 4.147m with a logo or the full 7-digit figure without a logo, since the large flaps can display numbers too.
