Advertisers expect a Return on Investment (ROI)


Offer your traditional advertisers a Smart way to secure 100% guaranteed ROI

Advertisers are struggling with what type of advertising is working, and thus moving their advertising budgets around. ROI stats are the only mechanisms that validate what forms of advertising works.

Customer purchases are paying for the ads, so you can offer 100% guaranteed ROI. So, now an advertiser only spends $1 on advertising when they get $1 in business. PLUS, all the value to the advertiser that comes with a face to face opportunity of a new customer experience.

“You can tell your advertisers that they won’t pay a cent out of pocket for your ad space until they get results.”


Consumers are spending more and more time on their mobile devices

When it comes to recall, traditional advertising is much stronger than online

Traditional advertising persists in proving its status and value because of its  strong propensities for reaching people, building brand recognition, and raising recall rates.  Make it easier for business to get their traditional advertising.  You’re not selling something new but using a new tool to sell your existing products.

An Advertiser buys an ad for $1,000

And hopes they get $1,000 in new business

SmartCard Model

Customers buy $1000 in products from the advertiser

How do you show value and incentivize the online subscription model?  Use SmartCard as a cost effective way to generate more paid online subscribers.

In order to turn your readers into paid online subscribers, you can offer a SmartCard element called SmartCash, which gives your subscribers credits in the amount of their subscription fee to use as cash on your SmartCard App.

Example: Customer pays $3/month for subscription, give them $3/month in SmartCash to use with the app. Publisher gets full value cash for subscriptions. Customers get SmartCash added to their account to use at any merchant
