Get Online and Pull Your Customers Off

'The Age of Online-to-Offline Marketing Has Begun.' - Evibe CEO Alex Lewalle

Alex Lewalle and Vincent Bouzeran, the founders of Evibe, a new online-to-offline social platform offering users constant, real time and life networking, announced today the long-awaited launch of pre-registration for its business to consumer marketing portal. The first to join the list and those who share the most on social media will also get three months’ worth of free membership and advertising.

Targeting post-graduates in their twenties and thirties, Evibe provides its users an alternative to existing social media, giving them the ability to get instantly networked into constant events and on2off-line social networks defined by preferences, interests, location, and availability. Users also specify, in general and when planning activities, the types of venues and services they are looking for. Merchants will now be notified of these preferences and specifications, in real time and all the time, allowing them to launch targeted marketing and promotion campaigns to compete for business and build their own networks.

Using the new portal, merchants can also receive, on their desktops or mobile phone, instant notifications of consumers in the area actively seeking goods or services related to what they themselves offer. When there is a need to expediently liquidate inventory or turn a down time around, businesses can message their networks and ‘target networks’ through self-managed banner advertising, mailings and networking. They can also create special events, or “Promovibes,” with the goal of quickly luring larger groups. Evibe Merchant allows extreme customization capabilities, allowing businesses that wish to avoid advertising discounts publicly to share promotions exclusively with a select group of users, based on type, location and availability.

Evibe offers its business users a turnkey solution for online branding and marketing, based around an easy-to-build and personalize virtual storefront. From their admin dashboard merchants can tailor their marketing campaigns and network across Evibe as well as existing social platforms. They can also sell promo offers and manage ticket and reservation booking through integrations with other sites. Independent service providers can let users vote on time and location of classes and other activities. To help make sure everyone is in the right place at the right time, Evibe provides customers with GPS navigation and friend-mapping.

During an interview following his presentation of Evibe Merchant at the Boston New Technology Forum, CEO Lewalle boldly told his audience that “the age of online-to-offline marketing had begun.”

“Our goal,” he continued, “ “is to give merchants everything they could need to go online and pull their customers off. We want local businesses to be able to find their customers and make targeted sales all the time and anytime.”
