Spreading the Word

Catpool, being affiliated with Texas State, is targeted towards Texas State Students, so the marketing strategies and methods of communication are heavily associated with Texas State and the surrounding area of San Marcos.

 
 
 
 
 

 

The App

 

Riders are able to enter their travel information and find drivers heading the same way on the same day. They can then check the driver’s profile and see if their interests match up, giving them a better understanding of who they may be riding with. If requested, the driver will receive a notification that grants them access to the rider’s profile. Seeing as safety is a top priority for this service, both the rider and driver will get a chance to look over their potential road trip partner.

 
 

 
 

Marketing

 

Advertising in places frequented by the Texas State student body will play a big hand in spreading the word and gaining more business traction. The goal is to raise awareness with ads that will draw students to use our service.
