Redeem free offers in exchange for providing feedback to local businesses. For example, lets say Nana’s Diner wants to find out what brings most of their customers into the diner. Nana’s Diner would offer you an incentive such as a free side of pancakes with your breakfast order, and in exchange you would take a short poll. The poll will help Nana’s Diner to grow as a business by giving them insight they would not have known. Lets say that the poll results show that the majority of their customers are students in small groups and clubs from the local community college. Nana’s Diner can now implement strategies for marketing. They decide to post fliers at the college that say “Students get free omelets with any purchase this Friday only from 9am-11am!” Or maybe they offer a free pitcher of sweet tea to any party of at least 4. But you get the idea; the ball is your court.
The best part? If you want to help small businesses in your area, they will reward you with an offer.
