QWIQQ Integrates with Constant Contact to Enhance Social Media and Drive Sales for Small Businesses
By Calvin Azuri
QWIQQ recently announced that it will be integrating with Constant Contact (News - Alert), Inc., to help small businesses improve sales through increased social interaction with its customers over its iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch devices. Headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, Constant Contact specializes in e-mail marketing, online survey, event marketing, social media, and deal tools.
In a release, Jack Wrigley, founder at QWIQQ, said that, “In many cases, time-starved small businesses don’t have the resources to manage multiple social platforms. QWIQQ enables you to quickly and easily capture a picture, price, and location of what’s important for you to sell and then, in seconds, share it across Facebook, Twitter (News - Alert), Foursquare, email and SMS. The result is a consistent selling message across important social sites, enabling merchants to engage with their best customers to drive more sales.”
QWIQQ addresses a number of critical issues within social media thereby allowing small businesses to effectively create content about their products or services with ease. The free app will be available in Constant Contact’s MarketPlace, which is an online resource of tools and services for small businesses essential to growth and expansion.
Greg Ross of Flips Store said that, “The ability to create a product listing in literally less than a minute and then have it propagate across the various social networks is very useful for me and makes the best use of valuable resources.”
Designed as an easy-to-use app, the QWIQQ makes it easy for small businesses to create one post which can then be distributed in a matter of seconds to Constant Contact e-mail subscribers as well as across social media platforms such as Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, Foursquare, and SMS. By enabling the conversion of a single post into engaging content and then ensuring its delivery across to numerous groups instantly, the QWIQQ app effectively supports small businesses in leveraging the robust benefits of social media to further their business interests.
