NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- iHeartLocal provides a new way for people to make and view local recommendations for local businesses. The app makes it easy for users to share their favorite places, discover where their friends go, and score local deals from the businesses that users care about most. It allows users to create a new network based on recommendations from trusted, real world connections.
The iHeartLocal merchant platform for small business owners is focused on helping them grow and succeed. New York City area small businesses can join the increasing number of local businesses that are using iHeartLocal and connecting with their customers. These businesses can also identify their most loyal customers and work directly with them to grow the business. All they need to do is create their places profile and an engaging campaign. For a fraction of the cost of maintaining a social media account, businesses can leverage their best customers to attract more repeat business as well as referrals for new customers.
"iHeartLocal has organically been tagged as the 'Anti-Yelp' among the thousands of small business owners already on our merchant system," says Michelle Shopshire-Morley, Chief Marketing Officer of iHeartLocal. "This app provides an incredible opportunity for small businesses to build a loyal, local following and engage with their customers long-term to keep them coming back time after time."
iHeartLocal has also just released their web platform allowing users to search for and connect with specific kinds of businesses locally on your desktop or mobile phone. You can visit the consumer web at search.iheartlocal.com.
