Reach into their (mobile) wallets 11/26/18

By Jane Nicholes, SNPA Correspondent

The owner of a media company based in West Virginia is testing his own digital coupon system that is available to local businesses without the need of an app.

"The idea behind it is, well, everybody carries their phones around with them," said Brian Jarvis, president of NCWV Media in Clarksburg, W.Va., and a new board member of SNPA.

Also, Jarvis notes, no one turns off their text message function. His system inserts coupons into the mobile wallets on smartphones and encourages consumers to text businesses to obtain coupons, discounts or a free gift.
