Bethere For Business: Take Control Of Your Company's Online Presence
You may remember that a few months back we introduced you to bethere, a new app that lets you share your social plans online with friends in advance. Think of it like a Facebook 'check-in' but for the future, allowing friends to catch up with ease and others in your network to join in the fun. You control who can access your plans, so if you're heading to your local or catching a new film at the cinema, only the people you want to know about it will.
bethere is now introducing a new platform, bethere for business, and encouraging London business owners to join-up and wise-up on the benefits of managing their enterprise on the app.
Whether you own a small coffee shop or a several thousand capacity music venue, bethere for business lets you take control of your presence on the app. See who's going to be paying you a visit, engage with your customers online, and attract new customers when they realise that your place is where all their friends are hanging out. You can also share information about your upcoming plans, such as festivities you've got going on this Christmas.
A breakdown of the benefits:
- You can create a profile, upload your business logo, photos and other important information (Christmas opening hours perhaps), increasing awareness of your brand among users of the app.
- You'll know in advance who's planning to pay you a visit. Great for helping you prepare for busy periods (get another batch of mulled wine ready), and allowing you to extend a warm welcome to those you know are heading your way (we're hoping our favourite cafes will save us a slice of chocolate cake when we're on the way!).
- Reward loyal customers by announcing special offers for their upcoming visit. Everyone loves feeling special and they're more likely to tell their friends about it.
- Use the app to let anyone who has checked into your venue in the past know about the future events and activities you've got lined up, whether that's a brand new comedy night, a Christmas party or an epic January sale.
Once you join bethere for business you'll be able to let your existing contacts know about your new platform, letting them share details about their next planned visit ... and so the word about your business spreads.
bethere for business is now available through the bethere web platform. The bethere community will become even bigger with the Android version launching mid December, letting business owners reach even more customers.
