San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2012
Merchant Data Systems has recently announced a team up with Karma Snack, a leader in internet marketing. The team up aims to provide businesses, both large and small, with an even more comprehensive suite of services. Together the two companies plan to expand their service packs to various industries including the aquarium space.
Each year 175 million people visit aquariums in the United States. There are, literally, hundreds of spaces for people to visit and those with young children often mark Dolphinariums or similar facilities down on their list of “things to do” on vacations and during school breaks. These spaces are fun, educational and can interest even the most disinterested of toddlers. While these spaces are wonderful attractions, people can’t attend unless they know they exist. That is where MDS and Karma come into play. Together, the companies plans to launch a comprehensive service pack aimed directly at these entertainment and education facilities; the companies will offer a myriad of services ranging from mobile credit card processing, to search engine optimization, to invoice assistance and creative advertising campaigns.
The goal of MDS and Karma Snack is to raise awareness about the facilities that are currently available and to give those facilities all of the tools, services and backend support they need to flourish and survive in today’s changing economy. These educational spaces have a special place in the hearts of staff members at both companies. Each staff member can remember, fondly, visiting one of those venues as children. Whether it was during a family vacation, or a class trip, everyone remembers entering a sea-inspired museum at some point during their childhood. The fun and wonderment was palpable and the learning was abundant. Times, however, have changed, and these facilities, although a staple in the museum world, must grow and expand to meet the ever changing needs of clients. That is where these two companies plan to come together and help.
Recent statistics show that more people search for activities online than through any other means. In decades past, many people focused on word-of-mouth recommendations; or simply asked the clerk at the hotel they were staying at for recommendations of places to visit. Those options still exist, but people seem to trust the internet more. The world has moved towards an “instant gratification’ mentality. As information is readily available online, people spend hours researching, planning and purchasing tickets using the net, but before they can do any of that, they need to know a venue exists. Through MDS’ wonderful merchant services options and Karma’s knowledge of the marketing space, the two companies plan to ensure those businesses who sign up are featured prominently when people spend time on the web. Not only that, the companies plan to ensure customers have all the tools they need to make their trip and day fun, convenient and efficient.
All of these wonderful expansion opportunities for the sector begin with the ability to accept credit cards. MDS is an industry expert in the field. The company began with a desire to bring credit card terminals, credit card machines and merchant cash advances to companies that need them desperately to expand. Since than the company has helped build an empire that many businesses relay on.
Merchant Data Systems, a leader in merchant processing services, began nearly two decades ago. From its inception, the company aimed to provide business across all sectors and platforms with a means of achieving all of their goals. Starting small as a credit card processing provider the company grew exponentially. Today the company offers businesses of all sizes a comprehensive service pack that offers everything from invoicing solutions, to POS integration, to payroll solutions. One of MDS’ most exciting service packs allows merchants to build an e-commerce platform with mobile payment options and shopping carts. MDS has long seen the value in the internet and today they are helping business expand as brick and mortar and online merchants. The team up with Karma Snack aims to expand on that exponentially.
Karma Snack, an industry leader in the online marketing space, has successfully completed 1,200 profitable campaigns over a myriad of different business sectors. The company has been responsible for viral videos, SEO optimization and creative advertising avenues for fortune 500 companies and small, mom-and-pop shops alike. They know the internet space like the back of their hands and work hard to ensure the right campaign is created for the right client at all times. Together with MDS, they believe strongly that they can bring success to the sea-aquariums and Dolphinariums. After all, the company does call South Florida home; just minutes from some of the most beloved and well-recognized sea-aquarium spaces in the country!
