Front Flip App Lets Store Owners Interact with and Reward Loyal Customers

— April 28, 2014 — Tech
Front Flip is an app that lets store owners and customers engage like never before. The app allows store owners to keep track of their customers through mobile marketing. It combines loyalty rewards, mobile offers, customer feedback and social engagement all into a mobile device. It’s effective for both national brands and small businesses.

Customers can check in at a restaurant, for example, and the owner can keep track of who their most loyal customers are and the days they come in the most. If the customer strays or the owner just wants to reward them for their loyalty, Front Flip delivers instant rewards through a unique Digital Scratcher, which emulates a lottery ticket but on a mobile phone. The owners can create whatever gift they deem appropriate, such as a free appetizer or a $2 drink ticket. It is clear that this technology is amazingly rewarding for both parties.
