October/November 2013
Greetings!
dealsnapt has just surpassed its 10,000,000th view of deals in its California/Nevada footprint.  We are approaching 2 million views PER MONTH.  Thank you to the 25,000 plus users and over 500 storefronts that are taking advantage of our platform.  We are finalizing agreements on several fronts that will increase our footprint by an order of magnitude.  More on that next month.
Can you believe that it is less than 75 days until Christmas? We have seen that our print advertiser friends are in full gear to get businesses to commit to November and December ads now. How Draconian.   Your advantage over big-box stores is that you can be nimble
We have recently released a new version of the merchant app that will help businesses track the engagement level of their customers and a new user app will hit the app stores in the coming week, just in time for the Holiday season.
Merchant App - Read More
Dealsnapt App - Read More
There are so many new features now available in dealsnapt and coming in the very near future as well.   The most important for your business is the ability to send exclusive deals and events to your most loyal customers.   Presently content is distributed to the entire dealsnapt user base.  This is great for new customer acquisition and engagement, but what if you could send your best offers to your most loyal customers?   Exclusive offers and events is the first phase or  our comprehensive loyalty program that will allow businesses to reward the frequent purchases and activity. Get your customers to FOLLOW your store now.   Find out How!
 
For existing merchants - keep posting.  Shoppers are watching and our network is growing.  Contact Us
MerchantApp 'My Messages' in the Merchant App
The new dealsnapt merchant app includes a key new feature that you will notice at the top right of the home screen.  My Messages, replaces the 'Add a New Deal' panel.  Don't worry, you can add new deals from the My Deals tab.
Why are My Messagesso important?
This is where you can see all activities around your deals, events, stores and account by your loyal customers.
My Messages is a timeline that identifies the users that are redeeming deals, commenting on events, and adding images to your store gallery to name a few.  You will see who is engaging and what they are saying about you.
In addition, you can receive notifications and/or emails on all engagement as well.
Information that is shown in your messages stream includes
  • deal redemptions
  • voucher purchases
  • deal, store and event comments
  • deal, store and event likes
  • people attending events
  • deal and events shares
  • store image gallery additions
  • and more.
Get the new merchant app and start engaging today.  It is available on both the Apple App store and Google Play
SearchandSaveSearch and Save Improvements
Users have asked for better usability in the dealsnapt app and more relevant content in the daily emails/notifications.  We have listened.
Users wanted to be able to search for content  in areas where they were going in addition to their current location.   dealsnapt now makes it easier for a user to change their location from the nearby deals, events and merchants lists by allowing location change from the list screen.
Now planning your day is more of a 'snapt'.
Another major improvement is the replacement of 'Share' with 'Save' on the deal screens.   This now allows users to conveniently 'Save' a deal they like for future reference.  Saved deals are stored in a users account and dealsnapt will notify them when the deal is about to expire.   This is one more way that you will be able to ensure that consumers use your deals.
Other improvements include,
  •   iOS 7.0 Compatibility
  •  Improved and simplified Sign-In & Sign-Up for users
  • Search Improvements
  • Smart content for today's featured deals
  • Daily Deal Email Improvements
  • Several UI and usability improvements
  • Bug Fixes
dealsnapt is available on both the Apple App store and Google Play
HolidayHoliday Shopping in the Age of NOW
Every business cannot wait for the Holiday season to begin, but few, if any, businesses know how they will fare.  Given the amount of competition and the need to commit to inventory, wouldn't it be great if you could respond to consumer and competitive behavior in a dynamic fashion?
Of course it would.  Mobile consumer engagement provides this capability.
In the age that pre-dated mobile communication businesses had no choice but to use inflexible, inefficient and expensive methods to engage consumers.
  • Inflexible  - 'Can I have That Bullet Back?' - requires a long lead time to produce, and once complete cannot be changed.  This puts your business at a big risk.
  • Inefficient -  'If a Tree Falls in the Forest Does Anybody Hear?' - produces immense waste product for a very low conversion rate.
  •  Expensive - 'Do you have a payment plan?'  - expensive because production and distribution costs are very high.
In the smartphone age businesses have the ability to have maximum flexibility, and high degree of efficiency at very low cost.  All 3 are important when you are trying to move product and remain profitable.
In addition, why wouldn't you want your offer in on a device that doesn't leave the consumers side?
Your business is dynamic and your consumers are mobile, you should be too.
dealsnapt is available on both the Apple App and Google Play stores.
WatchersFollowers are loyal customers
Get your customers to Follow your store on dealsnapt to build your loyalty program AND to receive credits on your renewals.
How does it work?
When in your store profile on the dealsnapt app, the user taps the top right, followed by Follow (see the 2 RED ovals on the phone screen to the right)
The user is now a follower of your store and can receive exclusive offers and events. In addition, for every active Follow on your store, you could receive $1 in credit to your dealsnapt renewal.  For example, 420 followers would result in a FREE year at the standard package level.  It is that simple, and a healthy community of returning customers is better for your business.
We also can help you migrate your email subscriber to this much more effective marketing model:  local, instant and affordable.
If you want to participate in this program and move your inefficient email list over to dealsnapt, let us know.   Contact us
BuyNowBuy Now - great for shoppers and merchants
BuyNowdealsnapt has introduced an important new feature.   Businesses can offer deals that can be purchased up front with Buy Now. Redemption is managed through either the Merchant App on a smartphone or the WEB.On the user side, dealsnapt will provide $5 in credits to all new sign-ups. Existing users will also have a chance to receive additional credits with every redemption they make. These credits can be applied to merchants that are offering Buy Now deals.  This is an advantage to both the user and the business as shown in the example to the right,
  • User - would have paid $8.75 for the taco deal (a 53% discount)
  • Business - will get paid based on the $13.75 Amount Paid.
