Bloomfield Hills, MI (PRWEB) April 06, 2014
That’s Biz announces the first coupon system allowing restaurants and retailers to post coupon offers on their Facebook page that customers can text to their smartphone for easy retrieval. The coupons can be restricted to a single use without POS integration and can no longer be viewed when the coupon is redeemed or past the coupon expiration date. The coupons are redeemed on the customer’s smartphone simply by the customer touching the screen and showing the phone to the store personnel.
“Restaurants and retailers know that it takes great offers to drive customers in the door,” said Dave Gonynor CEO of That’s Biz. “The challenge with posting coupons on Facebook is limiting the coupon to a single use. Now restaurants and retailers can promote offers in wall posts they can restrict to a single use without any expensive POS integration. Customers can share the great offer with friends and everyone merely requests their own coupon by texting it to their phone.”
In an August 13, 2013 Tech Crunch article, author Josh Constine states that Facebook recently revealed 78% of US users are mobile. Customers are already texting coupons they find on the leading retail websites to their smartphones. Now they can text coupon offers they find in their Facebook news feed from the restaurant and retailers they like to their phone making it easy to find the coupon when they need it.
“Customers hate missing out on a great deal,” Gonynor continues. “Now when they see a great coupon offer in their Facebook news feed, they can text the coupon to their phone for easy retrieval. The restaurants and retailers love it because it is increasing their post reach on Facebook at a time when customer engagement with their page is declining.”
The That’s Biz coupon texting solution does not require a restaurant or retailer to sign-up for a text marketing service and requires no expensive POS integration to redeem the coupons.
That’s Biz has been providing email marketing, social marketing and text marketing solutions since 2007. Hundreds of businesses across North America use their smartphone coupon solutions.
