New Mobile Marketing, Payments & Loyalty App Pays To Be Viral
ATLANTA, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sionic Mobile today announced a market first: free apps that pay neighborhood merchants to sign up their customers and pay consumers to sign up their favorite merchants.
ION Loyalty® for retailers and restaurants, a free app for tablets and smartphones, pays merchants whenever and wherever their ION customers use offers and helps them increase sales and cut credit card fees.
ION Rewards® for consumers, a free iPhone® or Android® phone app, rewards users for buying things they always buy, paying with their phones, connecting with friends and signing up their favorite places.
“Rather than paying a sales team to sign up new merchants or outside firms to help us attract new ION users,” stated Ronald Herman, CEO, “we are paying that cash directly to our ION users and merchants.”
There are no special codes or complex referrals. Consumers using their first ION offer become that merchant’s ION customer for life. No matter where that ION customer spends using the app, the merchant gets paid.
The ION Reward’s Pioneer feature makes it easy and lucrative for ION users to sign up merchants. In many cases, bonus IONs worth $5 to $20 or more are rewarded for each new merchant sign-up on top of the rewards users receive every time any ION customer spends there.
Search ION Loyalty and/or ION Rewards in your favorite app store.
