Since its launch earlier this year, BeachCityVIP owner and long-time local Cheryl Hood has focused on working with local businesses within the beach cities and surrounding areas. “With the high open rate of text messages, this is an incredible opportunity for businesses to stand out and engage with their customers directly,” says Hood.
Consumers using the service get the latest deals from their favorite local businesses via text message and no longer have to deal with coupons, punch cards or plastic. Users can choose to opt in to the service for free using a kiosk at the business location or through their mobile device, and select those businesses that they want to receive deals from. Hood says, “We make it very easy for people to opt in or out and have taken great steps to ensure that our service keeps its integrity.”
According to Hood, BeachCityVIP takes a hands-on approach, helping businesses create and manage mobile marketing campaigns without having to become an expert in the subject, “Business owners are busy and need to focus on running their company. We work together to create a strategy and set a frequency that will engage customers and build loyalty.”
Heidi Butzine, the founder of ShopLocal.us and Certified Locally Owned notes, “Services that can help local businesses reach their customers is important to the Shop Local movement and encourages spending to support our economy.”
