December and the holidays have been an exciting time for us at Kwanzoo. First we won the Constant Contact Application Developer Contest. Kwanzoo’s Engagement Marketing Apps came in First in the Social Media category. We then won the overall contest and were awarded the Grand Prize of $15,000. Just in time for that trip to Vegas. All work, no time for fun, of course 🙂
Here is a link to the video with the Constant Contact Partner Team when they visited us at the Plug and Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale, CA to hand us the “Big Check”. If you can’t hear me too well, sorry, it was the Winter bug here in the SF bay area, that got my voice down a couple of notches.
Next up, we got written up by Steve Strauss, the Small Business Expert via his column “Ask the Expert” on USA Today. The first request for a Kwanzoo account came in within the hour of Steve’s article going up. Steve’s column, we are told, is being syndicated by about 30 outlets, so it promises to be a big week for us. Thank you Steve!
And Constant Contact has a press release that just went out, listing us as the Winner in their Marketplace. Our app that won is this one right here, called a Sign-Up App. But it’s just one of many different apps that we offer. As Steve noted, the beauty of Kwanzoo’s engagement apps is that they are so quick and easy for any marketer or small business owner to build, and run everywhere.
Kwanzoo apps run inside email newsletters, on Facebook pages, websites, blogs, partner websites, and even on paid display advertising channels. They help you start and sustain conversations, in really clever, innovative, new ways. Leads, Leads, and more Leads. Qualified and Warm.
We make it easy to Up Sell and Cross Sell to existing customers as you talk to them. Have them express their interest and intent to you in real-time. We give you really simple ways to motivate customers to spread the word for you, and give them an incentive or offer for doing just that!
And all this at an unbelievably low starting price of $99/month (our Do-It-Yourself Silver Plan).
We are bringing the type of capability that would otherwise run an SMB $1000s to just get off the drawing board, with the help of a marketing agency or custom application development shop.
We have great self-help content and on-boarding for new customers as well. With Step-by-Step Walkthrus for the busy marketer or business owner, who simply wants to get stuff done, that delivers the goods.
Kwanzoo serves large enterprises (SAP, Oracle, Green Dot, others) too, not just SMB businesses. We have some clients who want us to handle it all, and they get our fully managed service offerings, with customized smart strategy consulting and smart creative services. Many of our SMB clients and some marketers at large enterprises prefer to get started with our Do-It-Yourself Service.
Which one is right for you? Just contact us, and we will help you sort it out. It all depends on whether you want to spend the time building your apps, or want to outsource the work. Either Way, Satisfaction Guaranteed. And Thank You for Your Support!
