We are excited since last Friday to launch a new feature which our customers have requested for the past many months. Despite some SMB owners to spread updates of their Today’s Specials to their friends across the social network, they hope that the same update can be broadcast into their Facebook Page and Place page as well. We have successfully made this feature happen, and for some business owners who prefer to use their page instead of their personal profile. Here’s a video to describe our new feature:
A video to demo how a small and medium business (SMB) can use Chalkboard to send updates of Today’s Specials via Facebook Pages and Places.
We know how merchants love interacting with their loyal customers, so we’ve revamped our merchant location web pages to help increase communication with them! With these new pages, we’ve now empowered merchants to engage in two-way conversations with their best customers.
Customers access a merchant’s location’s page in the same simple way they’ve always done – by clicking on that merchant’s promotion. In addition to being able to share these promotions with their friends through Facebook, Twitter and email, customers can now ‘Like’ and forward them via their Facebook account.
Customers that love a merchant so much they want to track its every update, even when out of the vicinity, can now do so with our cool ‘Follow’ button. It will provide instant updates via email on everything that the merchant has posted on Chalkboard. Plus, it will even suggest other merchants they might like!
Customers can share the love for a merchant or offer by rating and leaving a comment via Facebook, Yahoo!, AOL or Hotmail. Comments can be posted by customers, business owners, and friends encouraging interconnections within our growing Chalkboard network.
Note: these new pages are only available on web browsers at the moment, so customers will need to access promotions via our web widget. We’ll be back soon with a mobile version of these features!
