“This is a game-changer for helping local businesses keep in touch with customers."
Huntingdon Valley, PA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
AWeber, an email marketing software serving over 100,000 small businesses around the world, today announced an integration with OnSpot Social that allows AWeber's users to grow their online community by converting in-store shoppers into email subscribers and social media followers with a simple iPad app.
Launched in May 2012, OnSpot Social's iPad app provides an easy solution to help business owners grow visitors and prospects into lifetime customers. By displaying an iPad at a checkout counter, kiosk, trade show booth or reception desk, businesses can seamlessly invite customers to connect online.
Many brick and mortar small businesses struggle with the challenge of growing their online audience, and depend on paper sign up sheets and occasional website visitors. With 34 percent of small businesses using iPads, according to a national survey by The Business Journals, OnSpot Social's iPad app presents an ideal solution for small businesses.
Through this new integration, AWeber users can automatically add email subscribers to their AWeber account through OnSpot Social's iPad app. The tool allows small businesses to:
- Customize sign up forms to match their businesses' brand
- Set a display message to attract visitors' attention
- Invite customers to follow the business on Facebook or Twitter
“After only two months on the market, our customers collected over 10,000 new online connections using OnSpot Social,” said to Andrew Chupalio, Partner and Co-Founder at OnSpot Social. “Displaying an iPad running the OnSpot Social app in your store, restaurant, healthcare office, or event booth is an easy way to quickly build your email subscriber list and social community.”
“This is a game-changer for helping local businesses keep in touch with customers," continued Hunter Boyle, Senior Business Development Manager at AWeber. "Think of all the customers at your counter, waiting to checkout – now they can join your social feeds and email list in seconds, giving you the chance to send them specials, build relationships, and keep winning their business. We're very excited to roll this out with the OnSpot team."
Small businesses can immediately take advantage of this new integration by downloading the OnSpot Social app, creating an account and connecting it to their AWeber email marketing account, then displaying the iPad to collect email addresses.
To celebrate the launch of this integration, OnSpot Social is offering AWeber customers a 10% discount with the discount code “aweber10”.
