Ashley Skiffignton, owner of GetintheLoop, Durham Region. Raised in Newfoundland, moved to the Durham Region in 2007. The proximity to Lake Ontario, nature trails, abundance of deer and wildlife, local ski hills and the many unique, one-of-a-kind businesses are some of my favorite things about this area.
Previously, I worked in several fields, including health and beauty, education, senior care, senior management, sales and marketing. I volunteer for DRPS as a victim crisis responder.
GetintheLoop is a mobile marketing platform that gives local business owners a voice as well as an affordable marketing solution to connect with local consumers. Business owners create offers and experiences delivered directly to consumers smartphones and are given full access to data and analytics.
I decided to join the GetintheLoop team and bring this marketing solution to the Durham Region, it really spoke to what I enjoy and what I can offer; seeing others succeed, expressing creativity, being active and involved in the community, hustling and being an entrepreneur. I knew that GetintheLoop has momentum, a driving force behind the technology and an experienced, cutting-edge marketing team. I knew that I would bring it to our community to give business owners a tool to efficiently reach new and existing clients, increase foot traffic and drive sales.
