Greater Akron Chamber Launches New Money Saving Benefit -- Save Local Now™
The Save Local Now™ App is a FREE and Easy Way to Save Money and Buy Local
The Greater Akron Chamber is very excited to officially introduce our new mobile app, Save Local Now™. With the help of mobile technology, Save Local Now™ is a platform for chambers to help local businesses grow by placing marketing and self-promotion in their hands and delivering it to their customers.
With Save Local Now™, local businesses can offer deals and events on their terms. The offer and the promotion periods are completely within the control of the business. If the deal ever becomes cost prohibitive, the business can modify it, deactivate it or replace it with another deal in a matter of seconds.
Vicki Lantz of Vicki Lantz Photography in Akron said, “As a small business owner, we are very excited to have another channel to share our company information and promotions with the public. Save Local Now™ is a very user-friendly and efficient way for consumers to patronize local businesses. It’s a win-win situation.”
Chad Hamman, Vice President of Membership at the Greater Akron Chamber said, “We felt it was important to find a program that would change consumer behavior by rewarding them for shopping at our local member businesses. Save Local Now provides that incentive and gives control to the businesses to be as creative with their promotions as they want.”
Customers, clients, tourists and travelers alike can download the FREE Save Local Now™ app from iTunes or the Android market and start saving money at all their favorite places. The offers are virtually endless. Right now, there are over 100 deals and events on Save Local Now™ from Greater Akron Chamber members. Consumers can search for businesses, map locations they plan to visit and share deals and events with their friends via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. And redeeming a deal is simple…just show your phone to save.
