Having an online presence is vitally important for small businesses. But it can be a full-time job to keep these channels active and overflowing with customer activity, and as a business owner, you’ve got enough on your plate already. That’s where Belly comes in; with Belly’s loyalty and marketing solution, it’s easy to boost your business’s online presence. Here’s how:
Let your customers become advocates for your business
81% of small to medium-sized businesses use social media to establish loyal fans. Because of this, we’ve made it easy for your customers to check in and share their visits online. Every time a customer checks in, likes, comments or shares a post they are helping others discover your company. By sharing their Belly activity with their social networks, your customers are providing those word-of-mouth recommendations that have always been valuable for businesses. And because this is all happening online, the positive results are exponentially greater because friends and followers are all reached at once.
Be found where potential customers are searching online
More than word of mouth, 86% of consumers search for local businesses online and need to see a menu or list of products and services before deciding to visit a business. Our newest feature, Belly Listings, helps drive these customers into your business by making sure your menu or list of products/services is showcased on Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor, and other top search and discovery engines used to find local businesses. And it is able to update everything on all of these sites through a single point of integration.
Reward customers for following you on social media
77% of B2C companies have acquired customers through Facebook. That just goes to show how willing your customers are to connect with your business on social media. But once they’ve left your store, “Liking” your business page on Facebook isn’t necessarily #1 on their to-do list. Belly solves this problem by prompting your loyal customers to “Like” your business via the in-store iPad, on their mobile phone, and through email notifications. You can even put a value on a Facebook “Like” so that your customers are able to earn Belly Points for their Like. And because rewards entice customers to return to your business, you’ll be encouraging loyalty while simultaneously growing your social media influence.
