A big announcement from Tagwhat about a new addition that makes our app useful to everyone, 24/7.
Tagwhat for iPhone now lets you know what’s happening right here, right now, including deals, specials, events, things to do and more, based on the social media posts of nearby businesses.
The Problem: Millions of businesses use social media to announce deals, specials, events, and things to do, but nearby customers rarely find out. Why? Friending requirements, way too much social media noise, and because social media tends not to be triggered by where you are, right now.
A constantly refreshing feed of the actionable real-time opportunities from nearby businesses, delivered to your mobile, would help. Today, Tagwhat launches such a feed as part of its redesigned iPhone app.
The Solution: Tagwhat now gives you access to more deals, specials, events, and things to do than anyone else on the planet. And they’re served up based on where you are and when you can act. For example, when the pizza shop next door posts a 2 for 1 for lunch, Tagwhat lets you know. When you pass a happy hour, Tagwhat lets you know. When your barber has an open chair, and uses Facebook to announce it, Tagwhat lets you know.
For customers, this means never missing what’s happening around them. No friending, no searching — just a direct line to nearby businesses. For businesses this means finally reaching the right people — not only the ones who are already friends but also those who happen to be nearby. For Tagwhat, this means the ultimate hyperlocal experience: nearly one million rich multimedia stories worldwide and a constantly refreshing feed of nearby opportunities.
It’s Launched: Please download our new Tagwhat for iPhone in the App Store. The app is completely redesigned to highlight Tagwhat’s new real-time feed. Here are some images.
