Rally On, Folks!
f the wave of the future is valuing community above all else, then businesses like RallyCause are way ahead of the curve. On the front end, RallyCause is a free smartphone app that allows users to donate an instant rebate from their everyday purchases (think lattes and retail items, though service based purchases also apply) to the cause or charity of their choice.
Behind the scenes, this powerhouse idea acts as a revolutionary new way to market a business because it is very affordable (read: FREE) yet it delivers what it says it will: more customers, greater loyalty, and protected value. And the business owner only pays for it when it works.
We're not saying we don't love the occasional $3 yoga class purchased through a discount program like Groupon or Living Social, but we know in our hearts that our beloved small businesses can't sustain the value cuts that come along with these offers and, well, it just doesn't feel right to participate in that sense. So when something like this comes along, we want to hit it hard.
Visit the website to download the app for free to get started. For now, RallyCause is widely available in Bend, OR (with a few participating businesses in Eugene and Portland) and it's only a matter of time before it hits it's stride and goes big time. We feel good just writing about it, imagine how you'll feel actually using it. Rally on!
