National Retail Federation (NRF) Retail's BIG Show, New York City, NY, Jan. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Koupon Media,B2B Digital Campaign Management (DCM) platform provider, today announced the availability of its 'one-click to mobile' Facebook offering. The Company is also announcing a free 30-day trial of the service*, offering marketers the ability to engage Facebook users with quick and easy click-to-mobile coupons and offers, getting offers out to customers in just days.
Earlier this year, Koupon Media announced its cloud-based DCM platform allowing marketers to implement digital campaigns from any platform. The Company also recently announced "tap-to-redeem" technology, patented scratch-off coupon gamification, and its Apple Passbook integration, which can all be used to power offers, coupons and loyalty campaigns with a few clicks directly from the DCM platform.
Today, Facebook offers are redeemed by clicking an offer, where users are asked to provide an email address to receive a coupon via email, which must then be printed out and presented to the appropriate business for redemption. Now, through Koupon Media's DCM platform, marketers simply set up a Facebook 'one-click to mobile' offer that delivers offers directly to mobile, allowing customers to redeem coupons using barcodes, which can be scanned directly at the businesses point of sale.
When consumers receive their mobile coupon, they simply 'tap' the coupon to redeem it. The patent-pending technology then enforces one-time use through multi-layer fraud protection that automatically geofences redemptions and requires action within a pre-determined time.
"Marketers of all kinds are striving to find ways to improve the mobile customer experience, and many are interested in tying social media to mobile offers," said Koupon Media CEO and founder, TJ Person. "We're providing businesses with a platform to be able to offer shoppers an elegant Facebook-to-mobile experience, as well as real time tracking and less fraud."
Koupon Media's business-to-business platform helps brand managers customize offers to reflect its brand. By offering a variety of channels (mobile, app, email, print, text, social media, Passbook, etc.), companies are extending their brand recognition to a variety of customers who have unique shopping preferences. This allows brands to create a variety of campaigns for different customers types, based on revenue goals during any given shopping season. Koupon Media customers are already seeing increased redemption rates - as high as five times better than traditional coupons.
Retailers, c-stores, brands, CPGs, sports teams, charities, small businesses, and others can take advantage of Koupon Media's DCM platform and 'one-click to mobile' Facebook free trial offer today to experience first-hand how Koupon Media can drive additional business.
Koupon Media is demonstrating its DCM platform at the NRF BIG Show, January 13-16 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC. To schedule a demo, please email Brad Van Otterloo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
