Enjoying their recent press coverage in the Philadelphia Daily News and Philadelphia Business Journal Social WiFi Inc. takes its opportunity to introduce E-Pay WiFi to a whole new audience. The articles explain the process of monetizing WiFi access for small to medium sized businesses in detail. Simply put, the E-Pay WiFi system allows hospitality establishments to capture customer information which can be used to pass along digital coupons, offers and daily deals. By monetizing their free WiFi business owners can build their customer database while saving thousands of dollars in Groupon or other deal provider’s fees.
When visiting a participating establishment customers need only gain access to the merchant’s free WiFi to unleash a bevy of ongoing marketing opportunities. To access the merchant’s free WiFi portal, supplied by Social WiFi Inc., the customer is prompted to add their mobile phone number or Facebook login information. As new customers sign on, this creates a steady stream of new contact information to be captured by the business owner. With this information digital messages are sent to establish branding, offer special deals, coupons and advertising updates. The E-Pay WiFi system can handle all marketing messages while business owners simply watch their customer base increase.
