ClikitySplit possesses revolutionary technology, empowering both the advertiser and the end user. Advertisers build their “dynamic billboards” in minutes, using all the rich multimedia tools (video, audio, slideshow, scrolling ticker, etc.) available today plus 10,000 characters of text. The end user experience is enriched due to unique sorting features, the ability to start a new search with only the click of a radio button, fast comparison shopping, and no “push” advertising.

ClikitySplit is presently forming strategic partnerships and licensing its technology worldwide.

Frank Lucero founded Adfare over eight years ago with the intent to provide low cost online video solutions that businesses of all sizes could afford.

It took over three years before a single video clip was sold by Adfare but at that time many people were leaving internet marketing and thought that it was a passing fad.

Frank thought differently, and stuck with his beliefs that the internet would come back and that video would lead the way.

Plus the fact that Frank had just retired from a successful career on the Los Angeles City Fire Department where he was promoted up through the ranks to become a Captain and had placed many of his retirement dollars into Adfare so he was in for the long haul.

Frank’s Fire Department background provided him with a strong customer service belief that if you provide good service, a great product at low rates everyone wins.

Frank’s working role today has changed from building videos, calling in payroll, emptying trash cans, buying new equipment into one of leading the online video production charge that is providing new revenue streams for directories, newspapers, search engines and website owners all over the internet.
