Mobile, social, and database marketing now easy and affordable for local merchants

While many national and regional companies have mastered digital marketing via smartphones, tablets and social media, local businesses have had difficulty keeping up – until now. Dex Media (NASDAQ: DXM) is helping the little guy fight back. Dex launched DexHub, a digital marketing platform designed to help small businesses make better use of today’s mobile, social, and database marketing tools, at an affordable price.

DexHub offers small business owners, in one package, a website, mobile and tablet site and dedicated Facebook page, plus database marketing capabilities like appointment scheduling and text and e-mail reminders to connect with their customers. A personal campaign manager keeps the customer’s information up to date. “This product is a game changer for small businesses who need a contemporary web presence and the ability to communicate with their customers via mobile devices,” said Joe Walsh, President and CEO at Dex Media.

With DexHub’s adaptive design technology, business owners can have their company’s latest information instantly viewable across all devices. “Now small businesses can look like big businesses, regardless of website format,” Walsh said. He also noted how DexHub helps businesses rank highly on search engines, thanks to the fresh content campaign managers provide. “Google loves fresh content and having the campaign manager is key since most small business owners don’t have time to keep their digital presence up to date,” added Walsh.

A significant component of DexHub is DexLnk, a customer relationship management (CRM) tool designed specifically for small businesses. DexLnk enables businesses to build and manage their customer data, accept appointments using an online calendar and send customers information and reminders via email and text messages.

Additionally, DexLnk offers business owners the opportunity to plan their marketing messages in advance, such as specials around holidays or customer preferences. Users who purchase DexHub automatically receive DexLnk at no additional cost. “DexHub lets business owners look professional and keep their customers coming back using the email and text marketing tools,” said Walsh.

DexHub is available nationwide and the company plans to offer an online, downloadable freemium version of DexLnk. For more information on DexHub, please click here.
