Once you sign up you need to begin promoting Schwag to your customers in all your social media and even in your print media.

No. You do not have to offer deals but please do not offer boring ads that are already running elsewhere. Schwag is not a passive advertising platform. For the best in analytics and revenue generation you need to keep your ads fresh and have GREAT pictures! Even if you run the same ad for a month or two, change up the photos every week to keep it fresh.  PRO TIP: 1. Put Schwag on your point of sale system 2. Create a few special offerings that a consumer would only find on Schwag and keep changing them. Don’t be boring or lazy be bold be a schwagger!

Schwagapp is unique in that it is the go to app for people wanting to do something and spend money. The other forms of social media are GREAT. Problem is you may have 4,000 or more followers but they can be anywhere in the country or world for that matter. There may be only a couple hundred near your actual business location. The people on Schwagapp are near your business and wanting to do something. Schwag provides hyper local opportunities on demand directly from the business owner in real time, no third party website between you and your customers.

And with some of our proprietary technology we can tell how many Schwag app users actually walk in your door each month without you having to do anything.

Yes. We will consult and help in any we can to make sure you are benefiting from our app.

No. We believe in what we are doing and that you will enjoy the power of our app in a short period of time. We are month to month.

BUT– you have to do a few things to make sure you see success and it will take a few months to get up to speed 1. You must tell your entire SOI “sphere of influence” that they need to download Schwag to see the great things you are offering. 2. Constantly promote the Schwag app on your other forms of social media 3. If you do print media put the Schwag logo there and tell people to find you on the Schwag app for up to the minute deals and things going on. THERE is more to do but this should give you and idea where to start. This is not passive you have to be active– practice AB testing of your ads– Be creative and bold. We are not about just posting a special and letting people know your business hours, there are plenty of apps out there that can do that.

You BET! The flexibility of this platform is awesome. Just post a great picture and give it a title that will intrigue. Write a description that will make people want to take part and publish it for the time period you desire. That’s it. Schwaggers love screaming deals!
