Thinktiv Playbook: Amplifier

In 2010, QuickGifts was a 9-year old, bootstrapped startup that had built a sophisticated platform to support the online distribution and turnkey fulfillment of merchant gift cards. Traditionally focused on large, national brands, QuickGifts partnered with Thinktiv to shift its target market toward local merchants, who longed to compete for $110 billion in annual consumer gift card spending.  

Since then, Thinktiv has remade the company’s brand, messaging and end user product experience, shifted QuickGifts’ partnering strategy, and helped raise over $2 million in growth capital.  QuickGifts is now an unquestioned market leader in its space, with over 6,000 local merchants on its platform, and significant distribution relationships with leading online and big box retailers.


Thinktiv showed us the opportunity to execute a wholesale transformation of our market strategy, then put the right resources in place to quickly make that vision a reality. We’ve grown from 35 customers to over 6,000 with their help.
