This week we’ve updated the business side of our app with two pretty awesome features that we’re really excited about.
New Business Dashboard
First off, we completely redid the dashboard for businesses. Now, when business owners/managers open the Pointz app the first thing they will see is a dashboard that gives a simple, but very powerful display of how well Pointz is performing for their business.
With this new dashboard, businesses can easily see how many visits their business has received from Pointz customers over a given time, how long these customers stayed on average, how much they effectively paid for these visits based on the number of points they offered, and how many customer emails they collected (which brings us to our next awesome feature…).
Offer Points for Customer Emails
Businesses can now offer points to users for sharing their email with them.
Many of our local businesses have asked if we can share our users’ email with them and our answer has always been no in order to protect the privacy of our users. Now, however, we have decided to give our users the option of sharing their email with a particular business and not only that, but to earn points for doing so.
The points for emails work the same as visit points (free to offer points, businesses only pay $0.01 per point if someone opts-in). All emails are verified by us first as valid email before users are able to earn points for opt-ing in. Businesses can export emails at any time through the app.
This is a great way for our local businesses to build their email list and strengthen their email marketing campaigns as well as a great way for our users to earn more points.
We love feedback
We’re really excited about both of these features and both of these we’re added solely based on the feedback from local businesses.
We really do listen to all feedback :)
