With new social communities going mobile, we try to keep our eyes out for the next mobile sensation. We recently came across an exciting new mobile app and thought we should share it with all of you! It’s called QWIQQ and these clever folks created a simple, new way to share your favorite purchases from your smartphone. This tool supports merchants and consumers; consumers get to share what they love while Merchants are sharing what they love to sell. There is something here for everyone.
For the merchant:
QWIQQ posts can be shared instantly to Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, SMS and Email. And to make it even more streamlined, Constant Contact (an online email marketing service) is integrated into QWIQQ which will allow over 500K Constant Contact customers to use QWIQQ to create a post and then instantly create an email campaign. There is also a soon to be integrated payment solution enabling the consumer to buy whatever the merchant posts and do so “in-app” and “off network.” As an online merchant, you have to take advantage of every new selling opportunity and this one will not just help you sell through a new platform, but with the instant sharing feature, you may be able to bring in more social followers!
For the consumer:
The QWIQQ community is growing fast. Co-founder for QWIQQ, Jack Wrigley, tells us that they are seeing a 92% return rate to the app. People using the app as consumers might choose it over comparable sites when they find how easy it is to use. A user will simply find their desired product and then there is no more research; just buy it or share it without any copying and pasting.
