socialgrub introduces social media marketing solution for restaurants
BOCA RATON, FL (November 10, 2009) – SocialGrub, the first comprehensive social media marketing solution aimed at restaurants and retailers, today announced the beta launch of its platform. SocialGrub enables restaurants and retailers to create, manage and distribute or syndicate coupons, offers and marketing promotions via social networks and social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
Social Media allows businesses to reach one the fastest growing advertising markets. Facebook alone has over 300 million active users with half of them logging on every day and more than 10 million users becoming fans each day. In the first half of 2009 the two fastest growing age segments were ages 35-54 with 190% growth and ages 55+ with 514% growth. “Sites like Facebook and Twitter are enabling new and powerful forms of marketing that is allow companies to reach consumers quickly, virally and therefore cost-effectively”, said Sam Rubin, Chief Grub at SocialGrub. “We have developed a social media marketing platform aimed at addressing the unique needs of restaurants and retailers interested in tapping in to this new form of online marketing.”
According to Jesse Gideon of f2o, Fresh to Order, "After realizing the importance of having our brand participate in social media such as Facebook and Twitter we knew we needed to jump in with both feet. The biggest issue we were experiencing was the time it takes to truly be involved managing a successful campaign. We tested everything from small simple applications to expensive groups with mixed results. Then we joined SocialGrub. Their one-touch publishing feature sends our offers directly to Facebook and Twitter within seconds and saves us so much time, freeing us up to analyze and create results instead of trying to manage them. We really enjoy how the SocialGrub application can be sent to friends and their ‘print-on-demand’ coupons are very cool. I'd recommend SocialGrub to every restaurant/business that wants to maximize their Facebook and Twitter presence in one easy concise tool."
