    About Us

    Our mission is to make advertising more meaningful. We’re passionate about connecting brands and consumers in a way that delivers value for both. Since 2009, we’ve pioneered the leading platform for brand engagement and enabled brands to make a real impact on the lives of millions of consumers (and benefit from real impact to the bottom line).
    We believe the power of local influence can be harnessed online and offline to deliver paradigm shifting outcomes not only for marketers, but also for communities and society as a whole; and thus, we believe our platform can change the world. We affectionately call it Marketing that Matters.

    Pear is a part of the CustomInk group, a family of companies which collectively empowers millions of groups and their communities across the country.
