  • Cloud-based portal for merchants combined with the MyHowndTM app for consumers delivers a unified solution


    TEMPE, Ariz. - October 17, 2019 - Hownd (formerly FetchRev) has announced the availability of its
    new automated promotions platform that effortlessly generates the new and repeat customers local merchants need to grow their business and consistently generate more profitable revenue. With the launch of Hownd, the company is retiring its FetchRev name.

     

    In a world in which more than half of small businesses close within five years, local merchants need all the help they can get. Unfortunately, their existing marketing tools are not working:

     
    • Group-buying sites often lead to profitless visitors that can bleed merchants dry

    • Pay-to-play review sites are not aligned with merchant success  

    • Other marketing tools require significant time, effort, and expertise and only create activity instead of actual results and real revenue

     

    Hownd changes the landscape of promotions marketing by delivering a local merchant’s offers through an elegant and effortless combination of web, social media, email, and the new MyHownd consumer mobile app. The company’s other game-changer is its patent-pending Pay-Per-VisitTM (PPV) billing system that, when combined with an available zero-risk plan, means merchants only pay when Hownd brings them customers.

     

    Built on a proven solution for marketing to new and existing customers, Hownd includes access to an ever-expanding network of more than 38 million consumers. This network includes hundreds of thousands of consumers in each of the major markets throughout North America who collectively generate more than 50,000 transactions each month with local merchants. 


    “As FetchRev, we’ve proven the capabilities of our platform and built a strong understanding of the needs of local business owners," says Brandon Willey, founder and CEO of Hownd. "Feedback from thousands of local merchants has been built into our new effortless foot traffic platform. Hownd delivers the new and repeat visitors these businesses need with a simple pay-per-visit pricing model that just makes sense."

     

    The company has a zero-risk PPV-only Starter plan with no recurring monthly fee that enables merchants to only pay when Hownd brings customers through their doors. The Essentials and Plus monthly subscription plans empower merchants with additional features designed to further increase their customer data collection, foot traffic, and profitable revenue. 

     

    The platform includes a cloud-based portal where merchants can easily monitor and measure their foot traffic, promotions redeemed, and revenue directly attributable to Hownd’s performance.

     

    The company’s free MyHownd mobile consumer app makes it easy for consumers to discover and support local entertainment, dining, and health & beauty experiences and redeem savings from Hownd merchants. The local promotions are curated based on a consumer’s subscriptions and location. The app is available now in the App Store and on Google Play.

  • TEMPE, Ariz. – Nov. 13, 2019 – Hownd™ (formerly FetchRev), a foot traffic generation platform that helps local businesses attract new and returning customers, and Virtuix, developer of the Omni Arena virtual reality esports attraction, have announced a partnership to drive incremental player traffic to Omni Arena operators. Hownd will integrate with Omni Arena’s player database and use the player profiles that Omni Arena generates to promote repeat visits to the operator’s venue.

    “70% of Omni Arena players create a player profile, yielding an operator 1,000-1,500 email addresses and dates of birth each month,” said Jan Goetgeluk, founder and CEO of Virtuix. “Such incredible user data is only valuable when used for direct marketing that drives players back to the venue. Hownd is an expert at using player profiles for this purpose, and we expect that Omni Arena’s integration with the Hownd platform will increase repeat play even more.” 

    Omni Arena currently achieves a 30% repeat play rate, among the highest in the industry. Players who create profiles will be linked to the Hownd platform and receive curated promotions to bring them back to the venue. Operators will receive a free three-month trial of the Hownd Plus Plan which includes marketing and promotions based on the players’ date of birth.

    “We’ve been using Hownd for over a year now,” said Alpa Panchal, owner of Sky Zone McDonough, an Omni Arena operator and Hownd customer. “We are thrilled that Hownd will integrate with Omni Arena and use our guests’ Omni Arena profiles for promotions and birthday marketing. The high rate of repeat visits by our Omni Arena players is one of our main defenses against new competitors in our area.”


    “We identified Omni Arena as a premiere virtual reality attraction when it comes to capturing player data and delivering an excellent gaming experience,” said Brandon Willey, founder and CEO of Hownd. No other VR attraction generates player data and profiles like Omni Arena does. Integrating Hownd with Omni Arena creates a powerful combination that will stimulate players even more to come play again and again.” 

    Virtuix and Hownd will launch their partnership promotion at IAAPA Expo 2019. Virtuix is a Platinum IAAPA sponsor and will exhibit Omni Arena at booth #2686. Interested operators can sign up for a demo of Omni Arena at IAAPA 2019 here. Hownd is a Gold IAAPA sponsor and is exhibiting at booth #1073 where family entertainment center owners and operators, as well as industry partners, can see a demo of Hownd.
