Mobile advertising is becoming increasingly popular as companies of all kinds see it as a new way to boost business. Now a new service has arrived online that makes it easier to target times when your business is particularly slow. This should help to drive up traffic and footfall when times are at their toughest.
ThinkNear offers ‘smart marketing’ and the ability to choose when you would like your ads to be seen. The service creates coupons that attract your ideal customers to your business. For example, if you are quiet between 10am and 12pm on a Monday, you can use ThinkNear to send coupons to people in your area so they can use them at the designated time.
As the owner of your business, you can decide what kinds of discounts to offer and when you would like to offer them. ThinkNear uses this information to provide good deals to people who may not otherwise use your business.
The service is fairly priced at $99 per month, but businesses are currently being invited to use the service free of charge for the first three months. After this period you can decide whether to continue or not.
You control the whole system and if you wish to stop offering discounts or change the level of discounting you are offering at any time, you may do so. ThinkNear looks likely to have a positive effect on businesses that are struggling through slow times.
