New York, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
LocalMaven.com is thrilled to welcome Rachel Grossman as Digital Marketing Manager. Rachel brings over seven years of traditional and digital media experience working with global brands including Somme Institute, Sephora, Edible Arrangements, Liebeskind Berlin and Ovation Guitars.
Ms. Grossman will play an active role in the development and execution of the company’s marketing and communications strategies, including crafting key campaigns designed to encourage adoption and regular use of the company’s platform.
"We are excited to add Rachel to our growing team and believe she will contribute greatly to the business as we move closer to launch," says Arnon Rosan, LocalMaven.com's Founder and CEO. "Our company is looking to transform the way people give and get paid for referrals and we are building a top-quality team to execute on this vision," he added.
Word-of-mouth referrals are a proven source of new business and LocalMaven is creating a unique platform to organize the informal referral economy.
Businesses connect with promoters, or “Mavens,” as the company refers to them, who refer business to them in exchange for a small commission. To entice new customers to visit the business, vendors create “deals”, or promotions, that the Maven promoters can distribute to their network of contacts via email, text message or verbally in a seamless fashion. Mavens can also post links to deals on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.
The companies unique app allows for the easy creation and transmission of deals between merchants and their promoters and onward to customers at the point of the customers need.
With a projected launch in May 2014, LocalMaven seeks to offer a new and effective way for everyone to make money from referrals. It’s the first win-win-win relationship for vendors, promoters and customers alike.
LocalMaven.com is an Angel funded tech start-up based in New York City that just closed a seed fundraising round. The company operates globally and its platform is designed to appeal to nearly any geographic or vertical market.
