A History of Innovation

Founded by Rob Reed in 2010, he set out to address the convergence of social, mobile and local marketing. Anticipating the difficulty traditional marketers would encounter in adapting to the shift in consumer expectations, Rob developed a revolutionary product designed to enable corporate marketing to reach the masses through social media. He realized early on that the enterprise was failing at the local level. Large brands were unable to communicate and even be seen in the digital landscape.

Rob developed the MomentFeed platform to address the unique challenges of the enterprise. In the years since his innovative solution took hold, the platform has matured as a comprehensive solution for brands to harness their digital assets, delivering relevant, localized marketing at scale.

Today, MomentFeed, headquartered in Santa Monica, CA, is home to more than 50 employees and growing. MomentFeed is driven by continuous innovation that delivers measurable business results for our clients.
