Loyalty and the new data driven digtal marketplace
(August 5, 2013) Kirkland, Washington – Pirq officially announced the launch of Customers Now, an innovative mobile marketing service that helps merchants instantly secure new local customers. Business owners now have the ability to target nearby consumers with special incentives on their mobile phone, and Pirq provides access to an online dashboard for the merchants to view their results in real-‐time. The Customers Now program is an ideal service for a variety of verticals including restaurants, spas, retail, and many more.
“One of the hallmarks of our company is to have an ongoing conversation with our customers and continually evolve our service to address real needs in the marketplace,” said James Sun, CEO of Pirq. “For many small businesses, securing new customers in a cost-‐effective manner continues to be a significant challenge. With Customers Now, these merchants can acquire unlimited new customers for a flat monthly fee, and we’re confident that business owners will see a significant ROI from this new service.”
To get started merchants can visit Pirq.com and click on “Customers Now” to easily create an account, and upload an image for your business. After a quick approval process, merchants can simply print out a Pirq bar code from their computer and place it in a highly visible location inside their business so Pirq users can scan it and activate their offer. The new service starts at only $30 per month, and merchants can begin securing new customers the very same day. The Customers Now service is now available to merchants in the Seattle market, with other markets becoming available later this year.
Pirq is a free smartphone app that provides consumers with a convenient, digital way to earn amazing rewards and get instant deals at local businesses. With Pirq, you can easily manage your punch cards and search for nearby deals – all right on your phone! The more you use Pirq’s service, the more rewards you receive. At the same time, Pirq’s patent-‐pending SmartYield™ program and technology delivers tremendous value to merchants through enhancing customer loyalty, increasing customer frequency, and optimizing off-‐peak hours to add profit to their bottom line. The best part: every time a Pirq deal is redeemed, a charitable donation is made to feed someone in need.
