Businesses are built on relationships. Of course you already knew that, and you probably know it’s less expensive to maintain an existing customer than it is to get a new one. They like your brand, they like your service, and they already visit your store. So harness the full potential of that relationship and immediate bring them and their friends back through integrated mobile and social communication.
I was a small business owner running www.kno-name.com obssessed with social media. Guess what? It's not as effective as it's hyped up to be, but do you know what is? MOBILE
Instead of trying to get people to "like" or "follow" you, what you really need to bolster sales and make more money is to get access to the most personal communication tool they own: their mobile phone.
Basically we help businesses generate their own text list, and help them use it to make them more money - www.textbackchat.com
1) - PLAYERS
+ Senders needing to GENERATE list.
+ Senders to SEND to their existing list.
+ Recievers of Texts
2) - WHY HAVE FRIENDS JOIN?
+GENERATORS would want it to gain existing/new customer info for future money opportunities
+SENDERS same as GENERATORS
+RECIEVERS would want it to gain access to deals/offers/free things if offer had a "bring a friend of free whatever" kind of promotion.
3) - CHARGE
+ Subscription Fee for Generators
4> to test effectiveness/hear or see bigger companies doing it
+ Subscription Fee for Senders w/ included monthly text allotment
4> to make money from their existing lists
+ advertising space at bottom of each test to recievers *"sponsored by WEBSITE.COM" sort of stuff
4>RECIEVERS wouldn't want to pay... sponsors would to drive traffic.
