Lightning Pitch: SocialSaver
PRODUCT/SERVICE DESCRIPTION: SocialSaver provides digital marketing services to locally-owned businesses. Its first product is a software platform that enables local businesses to reward their customers with discount offers in exchange for social media engagement. Customers get the benefit of discounts on their purchases via mobile coupons, and businesses get the exposure that comes with increased fan engagement with their content.
We’re one of the first marketing startups to integrate action-triggered coupons. There’s plenty of existing Groupon-like companies that handle discount offers, and plenty of others that track content engagement and insights. We merge the two into a truly innovative service.
HEADQUARTERS: Portland, Oregon
