Its products also include LiveRetail, an online application that directs online advertising to target audience, as well as assisting manufacturers in managing communications, products, advertising, and marketing performance (Bloomberg Businessweek 2012). The firm also helps retailers in conducting retail advertising across various forms of media.
The company provides a one-stop tool to marketing for companies. Companies such as Google and Bing uses ‘search’, which allows users to find only 6% of what they are looking for. Search engines only get the attention of consumers but do not offer responses, so they are not able to achieve interest, desires and actions. Find engine on the other hand has the ability to engage consumers as they are able to add search items to lists, share and socialize.

Strategies and tactics
Another strategic option that the company should consider is how to monetize Find. The company will be able to achieve this through symbolic advertisement where the advertiser pays for every time the advisement is displayed to the user (Hatten 532). Consumers will be able to know about Find through social and online shopping. The company will use sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Bing, among other platforms that consumers frequent. The company can also monetize its website by offering physical products, affiliate products, and digital products.
The Find engine will enable companies such as Google, Bing, and Facebook to monetize their large pool of consumers. People visiting these sites would be able to find products and services online and in the process, businesses such as Facebook will be able to earn more money through their sites. Companies offering products and services will be able to enjoy a new marketing model as they will be able to advertise their products online and get customers for their merchandise.
