Challenge 1: Market Reach
The ability to offer businesses a means of gathering data to analyze and determine whether their current advertising strategies are effective; while at the same time providing a means for new and current customers to earn some rewards and view current promotions if they had not seen them.
How it works
Users are presented with a list of current promotions and a list of surveys to complete. Upon completion of a survey, users receive coupons to be used on goods and services from the business. Users will be alerted when they are in the vicinity of a business that is currently offering deals that are listed in the application. Promotions are listed for a specific time, after which they will be provided with a spreadsheet of the data gathered from the completed surveys.
