Dashible helps consumers find deals, discounts and promotions at local businesses in New York and New Jersey (expanding nationally in 2021) and provides businesses with the opportunity to reach new customers, create customer loyalty and increase revenue.
Why You Should Invest
- Deals have proven to be one of the best ways to get new customers in the door. But, if they only come once, what is the real benefit? Existing loyalty programs focus on customers that businesses already have. Deals and loyalty should be symbiotic for maximum effectiveness.
- Dashible integrates deals and loyalty in a single SaaS platform to help businesses find new customers and keep them coming back. We are building out our artificial intelligence to make the platform predictive and present customers with deals and loyalty programs that they are likely to actually desire. We offer easy and fun-to-use apps for both local retailers and consumers.
Local retailers have a difficult time finding new customers on a limited budget and keeping existing customers long term. Businesses are forced to use several different tools that don’t work together, are often too expensive, are 100% manual and don’t collect the valuable data that the business needs. To promote deals/promotions many of these businesses use tools like daily deal platforms that force a deep-discount, are extremely expensive due to revenue sharing and typically only attract one-time customers and posting to social media which is only seen by people that already follow them. For loyalty, they revert to manual tools like printing paper loyalty cards that customers lose or using expensive loyalty platforms that require another device on the counter or programs that require integration with their point of sale system that may not capture customers that pay in cash. We are continuing to build a platform that enables business to interact with and get a better understanding of customers through data and artificial intelligence throughout the entire customer lifecycle.
Historically, deals have been used to attract new customers who tend to not return, while loyalty programs have been used to keep existing customers coming back.
We plan to start by helping businesses attract new customers via deals, promotions and digital loyalty cards. This way, businesses can optimize the lifetime value of their customers by offering increasingly valuable rewards determined by the business.
Through our 100% digital platform, we put the control in the hands of the business owners. Dashible makes it easy and affordable to create custom deals that work for their specific business needs, whenever they want to. Our app allows our business owners to interact with customers even when they are not in the store. Deals can be created instantly to allow businesses to react to current happenings in their area.
We have built a unique digital loyalty offering that works with our deal service allowing businesses to create custom loyalty programs and provide incentives (deals) for customers to make repeat visits. They can provide increasing valuable rewards for their best customers.
One of the most powerful things about Dashible is that all our services work together to help businesses increase revenue while saving time and money and collecting valuable data about their customers’ behaviors.
Of course, we also provide value for the customers. We have developed a fun and engaging app that allows customers to easily find new deals and loyalty programs in their area by swiping right for deals they like and left on deals they don’t. This gives us more information about their interests. There will be no more need to search through lists of businesses. Dashible will do that for you.
Dashible plans to make money by charging businesses an affordable monthly subscription fee at the silver, gold or platinum tier. We offer a free trial to allow businesses to get to know us and see the value of our services before committing to a subscription.
The market for deals and loyalty programs used by small to medium-sized businesses exceeds $100B. The Dashible addressable market is $45B, which is focused on the 10MM local retailers that have a digital presence. We have built the platform to be self-service, secure and scalable to allow us to grow rapidly.
