Trying to support your local independent businesses can be tough when there aren’t quick and dependable resources to keep them all organized while staying in touch with their promotions, sales, and upcoming events. Thankfully, the great and powerful Internet goddesses have heard our prayers bringing us that much closer to our favorite local stores with the newest additions to Square, Inc.
Square, Inc. has released a series of customer engagement tools in order to allow local business to make money off their fantastic goods and for the buyers to easily locate and make purchases. Through the program, retailers can send out promotions to customers, get feedback, and share news about upcoming events at the store. A line of communication that was often lost once a customer walked out of any given store, now, they can be more connected than ever before.
With many businesses already using Square, sellers generated nearly one million dollars in sales tied directly to promotion redemptions. Which means, in plain terms, that customers are getting good deals and stores are gaining more revenue. It’s a great, fast new way for the little guy (or gal) to stay ahead in a world where big deals and promotions are the way to get new customers. Plus, who doesn’t love a good deal from their favorite Vegan Paleo Shoppe.
