Retailers Capture Social Media Connections In-Store with OnSpot Social
Do you own a retail business? If so, have you made the leap into using social media and e-mail marketing in order to sell more of your products and services to customers? Tools like Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail can help retail businesses get their message out to their target audience for very little cost. These tools allows retail businesses to build strong relationships with their customers, which helps retain customers and encourages future purchases.
Facebook and Twitter can be used for things like customer service as well. Having an e-mail newsletter allows retail businesses to keep customers updated on all of the latest information about your business, your products, your services, and even any events and sales that you might be running. Overall, tools like Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail really help retail businesses grow their sales.

Solve that issue and you’re golden! 😉

Setup an iPad Kiosk in Your Store
Picture this… A customer walks through your door and begins to look around your store. Along a highly traveled path you place an iPad kiosk with a bright shiny iPad attached to the top. The OnSpot Social app is running and the Kiosk Display screen is on with a Special Offer message Displays: Save 10% on Your Purchase if you Like our business on Facebook or follow our business on Twitter.
The customer was on the fence about making a purchase, but the 10% discount puts her over the top. She taps the Facebook logo on the screen, enters in her Facebook login information, and Likes your Facebook page. A chime sounds right within OnSpot Social so your cashier knows that the customer successfully connected to your retail store on Facebook. The customer takes the product up to the counter to collect her 10% discount and make her purchase.
Look at that… By using OnSpot Social you made a sale that you may not have made without running another discount promotion. You collected a Facebook Like for your Facebook Business Page. You have created a new marketing channel for getting information to this customer, which will increase the potential for future sales. Pretty powerful stuff, huh?
