DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The tech industry is gearing up for the Big Game – led by 5miles, one of the country's fastest-growing marketplace apps. The app features football memorabilia that consumers are offering from a variety of teams – from autographed jerseys to game balls. It also provides a list of household services, such as party caterers, while following the industry's safest verification methods.
5miles, for the first time, is airing a regional television ad in the second quarter of the Big Game, touting the easy way for users to sell goods and services. The 30-second spot is here: https://youtu.be/8j2wmtOrzy0
How it works: With more than half a million buyers and sellers in this market alone, Dallas-based 5miles is a free app that allows you to buy and sell items and services with your phone. Users snap a photo, enter a voice or text description and instantly sell to buyers or list services within seconds. The app uses the GPS location on your phone to reach buyers and sellers in your area. Once an offer is accepted, the app uses a private portal to arrange the item exchange. The app is safer than similar platforms because it doesn't allow the sharing of personal information on a description, and a messaging system keeps contact information private.
The app has surpassed five million users across the U.S. You can find virtually anything on the marketplace—everything within five miles.
What users are selling: Sports and outdoor goods is one of the top-selling categories. Here are some of the items on the app:
- Peyton Manning Denver Broncos jersey
- Carolina Panthers Game Day hats
- San Francisco 75th Jerry Rice signed jersey
- Tom Brady New England Patriots jersey
- MVP Emmitt Smith signed football
5miles is a hyper-local mobile marketplace app, one of the nation's fastest-growing online shopping ventures in only a year of operation. It is the first app of its kind to include services, housing and jobs, in addition to second-hand trading. Putting a premium on safety and security, 5miles does not permit personal information on an item description, offering instead a proprietary messaging system that keeps contact information private.
