Community Link our efforts to help bring consumers to small businesses within a community. Small business is so important to a community and it seems that, at every turn, the small business owner is having to adapt to an everchanging landscape that, in many cases, they find they can't affor to compete in or don't know how. Community Link is designed in the genApp API and provides customizable mobile apps for both the consumer and the business owner in an effort to help build relationships between them.
Community Link business apps provide businesses within a particular area, an avenue to market directly to the consumers within that area through mobile apps that utilize tools to help market, promote, and gain brand recognition within the community they service. Additional tools help the business owner manage the look an feel of their app, giving them the ability to personalize and brand a mobile app they can make available to the consuemrs in the area. The apps offer an array of tools to manage content such as;
Community Link offers a tool set for buesiness owners who participate in business networks. These tools allow the business network to work in conjunction with the business mobile apps. Each business mobile app, for the busiensses who are in a business network, provides the consumer with a complete list of all the businesses in the network. The consumer instantly gains access to the entire network once one member's app is loaded on the consumer's device. From the list of businesses in the network the consumer can load their app, reach out to them via email or a phone call, or even recommend a potential customer to them. Additional tools allow the business to network among the members in new ways and help to reduce the time required to be part of a traditional business network.
Community Link offers apps to consumers as well! While they provide some of the same features of the business apps they also provide features designed to help the consumer in daily life, such as a shared shopping list and access to community content. Communty content is content that each of the business add to their apps such as special offers, job postings, blog postings, and event postings. When a consumer views their own app these options become available to them to allow them to get to know the business around them and a bit more about what those businesses do in the community. The consumer app is also a customizable app that consumers can share with family, friends, and fans. They can include their favorite content, such as videos and images, for anyone who has their app on their device to view. When viewed by anyone other than the owner, it looks like normal mobile app. It's not until the owner of the app views their own interface that the app provides access to the other features such as the community content. This is designed to bring consumers to the businesses in the area, on the consumer's terms. They are able to review the content they have an interest in, get the savings available to them in the community, and lean more about businesses in their community.
So why would a business want to use such a platform for their needs?
