NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Marqii is proud to introduce the first mobile business platform, using location data to make direct-to-consumer advertising of specials and promotions affordable and available to local establishments.
“Local bars, restaurants and other businesses generally can’t afford conventional advertising in newspapers, TV or radio. Marqii gives businesses the power to reach their neighborhood mobile traffic, increase foot traffic and provide real-time incentives.”
“Marqii is the digital upgrade and compliment to the marquee/chalkboard street sign for local businesses to promote daily specials & happy hours,” says Avi Goren CEO and Co-Founder of Marqii. “Local bars, restaurants and other businesses generally can’t afford conventional advertising in newspapers, TV or radio. Marqii gives businesses the power to reach their neighborhood mobile traffic, increase foot traffic and provide real-time incentives.”
Traditionally, small local businesses have relied on coupons, costly mailers and collateral materials to entice customer interest with limited returns. While some have attempted to create digital incentives, the process often becomes too complicated for the average business owner to operate and maintain. For just $2-$4 per day, Marqii will deliver marketing messages to potential customers looking for a special whether it’s a happy hour, 2 for 1 tacos, or even a steak dinner when and where they are searching.
The platform is designed to simplify the creation and distribution process of compiling and categorizing specials letting users seamlessly find exactly what they’re looking for based on location. The cloud based API connects with 70+ online publishers including Facebook, Google Plus, Foursquare, CitySearch, Yahoo!, Yellow Pages etc. to showcase each special in real-time. Additionally, each establishment’s core location data such as name, address and phone number will be accurately populated on each publisher allowing cross platform consistency.
“Marqii’s mission is to create a business-friendly ecosystem built on results and immediate solutions,” says Goren.
Beginning in January 2017, local businesses in the New York City area will be able to sign up for the platform. Marqii will offer a special promotion that encourages everyone to ‘Respect The Special’. The first 50 signups will receive free service for 12 months, and the next 100 will receive 50% off the annual fee with a special promo code. Additional cities will be available in the coming months.
