It sounds as if ever since Google launched local service and native pages, small businesses have had a giant opportunity to expand their presence in local search. Obviously Yelp led the manner in local business directories for years and continues to be an important player available in the market, joining what appears like hundreds of different local business oriented services.
Yiftee is an app that’s recently launched, which enables customers to choose a present for somebody, from an area business. Here’s the way it works:
On your smart phone or web choose a present at a local merchant, pick your friend, and pay for the gift. Your friend immediately gets the gift notice via Facebook, email, and/or text, which includes a single use digital mastercard and gift/merchant description. Your friend takes her phone to the merchant, shows the digital bank card, and gets her gift!
Like many apps and online services, Yiftee seems to be more of an answer that’s searching for an issue – the image of Facebook was when it first came on board or many other services.
What’s the use on your business Yiftee hopes to drive a following of local customers in your business. The more customers use Yiftee to offer small gifts to others, the more local business, your online business gets.
You can’t get hurt from sorting out this new service…so try it out.
