Easily Collect Subscribers Anywhere With Your iPad
Posted By Crystal Gouldey On November 12, 2012 @ 9:08 am In Email Marketing | 17 Comments
Half the battle of managing a successful email marketing  campaign is building a subscriber list. A lot of businesses do this online, but if you don’t have time to create a big online presence, you may not be able to get the same results. (And no, purchasing a list  does not work.)
And if you’re having people sign up pen-and-paper style in your store or at an event, you might find yourself spending too much time deciphering handwriting and organizing spreadsheets.
You need a way for subscribers to sign up online, while they’re near you and while you have their attention.
OnSpot Social  is your answer.
It’s an app for the iPad that provides an easy way to collect email subscribers and social media fans when they visit you at a trade show, your store or office… or anywhere you may be.
Here’s what it looks like:

Next Saturday, November 24 is officially Small Business Saturday. On this day, American Express  is encouraging everyone to shop at small businesses. Small businesses help communities by providing jobs and invigorating the local economy, and Small Business Saturday gives everyone the chance to support these businesses.
American Express is also providing free resources  for small businesses to promote the event.
Over 100 million people shopped at small businesses last year for the event, so you can capitalize on the higher crowds by encouraging visitors to sign up to your email list via OnSpot.
