Cloud-based portal for merchants combined with the MyHownd app for consumers delivers a unified solution
By: Hownd Inc
In a world in where half of small businesses close within five years, local merchants need all the help they can get. Unfortunately, their existing marketing tools are not working:
Built on a proven solution for marketing to new and existing customers, Hownd includes access to an ever-expanding network of more than 38 million consumers. This network includes hundreds of thousands of consumers in each of the major markets throughout North America who collectively generate more than 50,000 transactions each month with local merchants.
"As FetchRev, we've proven the capabilities of our platform and built a strong understanding of the needs of local business owners," says Brandon Willey, founder and CEO of Hownd. "Feedback from thousands of local merchants has been built into our new effortless foot traffic platform. Hownd delivers the new and repeat visitors these businesses need with a simple pay-per-visit pricing model that just makes sense."
The company has a zero-risk PPV-only Starter plan with no recurring monthly fee that enables merchants to only pay when Hownd brings customers through their doors. The Essentials and Plus monthly subscription plans empower merchants with additional features to increase their customer data collection, foot traffic, and profitable revenue.
The platform includes a portal where merchants can monitor and measure their foot traffic, promotions redeemed, and revenue directly attributable to Hownd's performance.
The company's MyHownd mobile consumer app makes it easy for consumers to discover and support local entertainment, dining, and health & beauty experiences and redeem savings from Hownd merchants. The local promotions are curated based on a consumer's subscriptions and location. The app is available in the App Store and on Google Play.
