Over 20% of all mobile phone users now have a smartphone. What’s a smartphone? A smartphone is a high-end mobile phone built on a mobile computing platform, with advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary feature phone. That computing ability coupled with the mobile apps that are available make life easier and more productive, all from the palm of your hand.
Expect Referrals has jumped on board with this trend by introducing its mobile optimized version of the software. We understand that consumers are busy people and busy people, even with the best intentions, are more likely to participate in a sharing program at the time of purchase. That is where the mobile version of ER steps in.
Say you own a frozen yogurt shop. And, you are offering your customers a “buy one get one free” deal when they share a 10% off coupon with 3 friends. When the customers is about to pay for their yogurt, the cashier can tell the customer about the program, direct them to the mobile site and the customer can share right there. Then, in seconds, their “buy one get one free” coupon appears in their email on their smartphone and they can instantly enjoy the bonus incentive and save.
To make this process even easier, we are including a QR code with every account so you can post QR codes in your store locations so customers can just scan, share and save. Instant savings equals instant satisfaction.
For businesses that interact with customers face to face, this new feature is going to make a huge impact on increasing the number of customers that participate. We can’t wait to hear how it works for you.
