)-- SaveLocally Inc. is working with the social networking site nuAlerts.com to provide SaveLocally members and partners with customizable communication tools.
SaveLocally, which brings the traditional fundraising coupon book online, will use nuAlerts to send news and the latest in coupon information to members and partners on their preferred tools -- Facebook, Twitter, etc. -- all with a single click.
“We look forward to working with nuAlerts to enhance the SaveLocally IT experience,” said Barry Bestpitch, SaveLocally’s chief executive officer. “The service will allow consumers, merchants posting coupons, and SaveLocally’s fundraising partners to receive the newest information on whatever media they use most, be it on Twitter or other sites, via e-mail, or by texting.”
SaveLocally opened in June in San Jose, its initial market and the starting point for its Northern California launch. The online coupon program is designed to work exclusively with fundraising partners such as schools, youth sports and other community organizations. It provides powerful advertising and promotional tools for local businesses and big savings for consumers.
Initial fundraising partners include Breathe California, which has worked in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1908 to reduce the impact of lung disease through prevention, education, and patient services.
nuAlerts is the ideal social media marketing tool for local organizations, leaders and businesses to increase visibility and customer loyalty through Facebook, Twitter, SMS, iGoogle and 40 other social media sites. With one click, organizations can post a nuAlert to all of the top social networking and media sites, and customers can receive alerts via their preferred channel, including SMS, Facebook and e-mail. The nuAlerts dashboard provides instant access to updates and information, and itself can be added to any site with a few clicks.
