The Valuevine platform is a geo-location social media distribution tool, backed with sophisticated analytics that mines data to specific locations where consumers are, using advanced mapping tools.

Valuevine enables organisations to engage in social media in a highly targeted way and takes the sweat and effort out of distributing social media content. The platform identifies consumers by their location and what they are saying on social sites. It enables companies to send highly targeted messages in response and drive consumers directly in-store within a short distance from where the consumer is located.

Valuevine takes away the challenge for Corporate Headquarters when trying to manage local area marketing across a number of retail outlets or franchisees. Corporate HQ can take complete control or give partial / total control to local outlets to send social media content and messages to consumers. With this added ability, marketers can view consumer reaction’s and then track their conversion, showing which social campaigns work best, through a collaborative activity feed across all locations.

With a powerful analytics suite behind the platform, Valuevine provides geo-location social media research and data to plan local area social media marketing campaigns.
Bendalls Group has confidentially been piloting the system with a number of their corporate clients before announcing the national launch today.

Fi Bendall, Managing Director, Bendalls Group said, “We are really excited to be working with the Valuevine team in the USA. In Australia, we are constantly approached by businesses asking us how to implement social media.. Valuevine enables us to take social local. It is a highly targeted tool that is a win win for consumer and retailer. The consumer only gets a message, offer or content, when they are talking about / asking across their social networks about the subject / product. The marketer sends social messages that are relevant to the consumer and therefore more likely to drive an action to sale, using Valuevine at a highly cost effective entry price, that delivers visible ROI”.

CEO, Valuevine Inc, Neil Crist added, “We believe there is growth and innovation opportunities in Australia and the wider Asia Pacific market as social media has become mainstream media. The strategic key for Australia, as in the USA is local-based social media works better than trying a mass-market approach, which doesn’t drive sales and often consumers don’t want to be a brand’s friend! Bendalls Group has provided us with a strategic ally in the Asia Pacific market to bring best practice to social media content distribution, social research and ROI tracking. We are looking forward to a long mutually beneficial relationship as we launch more features to the Valuevine suite of products”.
