Smithfield, N.C. (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
The hCard mobile apps are coming to Johnston County, and schools and nonprofits will benefit.
The hCard national discount program will donate a minimum of $5,000 worth of hCards through the Ambassador Referral Program, supporting schools, teams, nonprofits and first responders. hCard managers are seeking business owners who want to help distribute the cards.
“We are seeking a limited number of local business owners who are interested in supporting schools, teams and nonprofits. Participating businesses receive high visibility advertising (mobile and online) in return,” said Kyle Brown, hCard business development manager.
The hCard offers unlimited, year-round discounts to area residents on everything - from restaurants and salons to movie theaters and retail shops. Local businesses can support their communities and increase their visibility by signing up to be listed in the hCard online directory and on the hCard suite of mobile apps.
The discount card is free to members of the military and veterans. Plus, when an hCard is purchased from an organization school or nonprofit, the group keeps 100 percent of the proceeds.
The program is a new way for local business owners to advertise mobile while supporting those who serve our country. Businesses who register are visible on five mobile apps free for two years, reaching thousands of new customers in their city. The apps feature the business name, location, website address and phone number. The web directory gives business owners another asset to boost their search engine optimization efforts.
“We know small business owners struggle to reach their audience with the high cost of advertising and keeping up with social media,” said Sandra Burnett, hCard president. “Our mission is to become part of Raleigh through our 100 percent fundraising model, promoting hCard businesses while helping supporters save money on everyday purchases.”
