Media Outlets (TV, Radio, Newspaper, Magazine) trade their advertising for a business' products and services, and then use SmartCard technology and our app to recoup their advertising revenues.
Digital marketing experts estimate Americans come in contact with 4,000-10,000 advertisements every single day… Small and large businesses alike can’t compete with national advertising budgets. We believe this creates problems for businesses trying to attract more customers, media outlets trying to sell more ad space, and patrons looking for goods and services.
What keeps merchants and media outlets from reaching their advertising potential? Everything, from cost, to lack of guarantees on the merchant side, to non-returning advertisers and inconsistency on the media outlet side. SmartCard seeks to solve these problems and change the world of advertising with a simple strategy – giving the merchant full control of advertising dollars.
With SmartCard, a merchant trades its products or services for advertising with a media outlet (magazines, radio, tv, etc.), which then offers the merchant's goods and services at a discount to users. Users who download the app use it to purchase full-valued goods and services at a discount. When users pay through the app, media outlets recoup their advertising revenue from the merchant by receiving a percentage of the transaction. We believe this system drives more customers to a business, with no risk and no out-of-pocket cost for the merchant!
We think the SmartCard formula offers a simple process for overcoming major roadblocks in promoting a business and expect it to disrupt the advertising industry.
