According to a recent Google survey of smartphone users, there are three types of shoppers who regularly use their mobile device:
- The Local Information Seeker
- The Action-Oriented Consumer
- The Smartphone Shopper
By signing your business onto GetintheLoop, you have the ability to reach shoppers in all three categories:
The Local Information Seeker
Before customers can make a decision about visiting a local business, they have to discover the business first. A whopping 95 percent of smartphone owners have used their mobile device to search for information on local businesses, which is why it’s crucial for your business to have a mobile presence.
GetintheLoop generates increased exposure for your business. As an all-in-one-shopping app, GetintheLoop provides people with a directory of local businesses right at their fingertips. The apps contain numerous categories: Food + Drink; Salon + Spa; Things to Do; Health + Fitness; and Shopping.
The Action-Oriented Consumer
Once customers find information about a local business, they’re likely to take action. Amongst the 95 percent of smartphone owners who search for information, 61 percent call a business, 59 percent visit the business and 44 percent make a purchase. Eighty-eight percent of these consumers will act within one business day.
When customers come across an offer that catches their eye on GetintheLoop, it’s easy for them to take action and redeem the offer. GetintheLoop members can redeem offers in-store, over the phone or online – without prepaying. There’s a call-to-action button on each offer that clearly outlines how an offer can be redeemed.
The Smartphone Shopper
Seventy-nine percent of smartphone users remain active on their smartphones while they’re shopping. The fact that 74 percent of those shoppers end up making a purchase should motivate any business to engage smartphone shoppers with mobile offers.
GetintheLoop members have the ability to view and redeem offers while they’re shopping. There are numerous app features that help members make real-time shopping decisions. If members opt in to receive push notifications, they will receive mobile alerts when there are special offers available based on their location and shopping preferences.
