Frequently Asked Questions
Why? How to implement? How to Profit?
We’ve set this up to be easy, don’t see an answer to your question, please don’t hesitate to ask!
- WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO?
Live Locally is a software platform developed to bridge the gap between new technologies and social media.
It has been specifically designed for Bar & Restaurant owners to save time, reach more patrons, and bring their local marketing efforts on par with major brands. Essentially, we fill the gaps where most On-Premise accounts drop the ball.
- WHY DO YOU CALL THIS THE “PRINT SERVICES OF THE FUTURE?”
Our program, financial-model (shared by brands, profitable) and business-logically (good for brands/customers) speaking, is designed exactly as Distributor Print Services.
We believe “Digital & Social Media” is the future of bar/beer promotions. There are a few things that make our program better. As you increase your level of service, all of the following are better:
- COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: Only 1 distributor will be able to provide digital service to an account
- SALES INCENTIVE: Trackable stats means higher sales
- BRAND RECOGNITION: Providing this program for your accounts builds an ad platform controlled by your distributorship.
- SO YOU’RE SAYING “PRINTING POSTERS” FOR OUR ACCOUNTS IS ANTIQUATED?
Sadly, no. What we’re saying is that 20 years ago, no distributors provided print services. Now they all do. It’s simply an evolution of the market adapting to Account needs (and strategies to build relations/sell more).
- AS A DISTRIBUTOR, WE ALREADY RUN OUR OWN TWITTER, IS THIS WHAT YOU MEAN?
NO. We are Consumer and Account focused. Think about who YOU PERSONALLY follow. Bands you like? Your favorite restaurants and chefs? I use UPS every day, but I don’t follow them on social media. Our program is designed to target TRUSTED LOCAL BRANDS and get their endorsement of your products.
- WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THIS WILL WORK FOR MY ACCOUNTS?
Who reads a newspaper anymore? If you don’t think people, especially college kids and future alcohol consumers are using Social Media and Smart Phones ast their dominant method of communication, then we don’t know what to tell you.
If your customers don’t, they soon will.
- I DON’T THINK MY ACCOUNTS ARE INTERESTED IN SOCIAL MEDIA/MOBILE TECHNOLOGIES.
Who reads a newspaper anymore?
If you don’t think people, especially college kids and future alcohol consumers are using Social Media and Smart Phones ast their dominant method of communication, then we don’t know what to tell you.
If your customers don’t, they soon will.
- CAN’T MY ACCOUNTS SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS WITHOUT ME?
Of course. However, it will be done at a much higher expense and effort.
Think about it like this: Do your accounts just want someone else doing all their promotions for them? Do your accounts love spending money on anything?
Eventually, they will realize Mobile & Social are the future and they will seek to solve it. When that happens, there are 3 things that can happen:
- Account solves this problem on their own, OR
- YOU solve this problem for your accounts, OR
- A Competitor solves this problem for them
Which situation can you benefit from? (hint: it’s #2)
- MY ACCOUNTS ARE NOT TECH-SAVVY. WILL IT WORK FOR THEM?
We probably understand even better than you, just who the majority of your Accounts are and what limits they have when talking technology. This program was modified many times to make it user-friendly for both their technical skills and actual logistics of day:day business/schedules.
Each feature is also extensively documented, however, 1-2 minute videos seem to be the best.
Honestly: It’s easy for your accounts. That’s why we’re the best.
- OK, SO WHAT ARE THE FEATURES?
We optimize everything for the account, you, and your brand.
Planning an event with an account? Synchronized promotions make everyones’ life easier and the events more successful.
- Want Social Followers? Get 1,000’s for each account and millions for your brands.
- Want to feature your brands on a bar’s menu? Click a button and it will be done.
- Brands, Stop wasting money on Print/Billboard Media or even CPC: We’ll get recommendations from local businesses for your brands; over 7,800,000 per month per market.*
- WE ALREADY SPEND A LOT ON STAFFING/DESIGNERS/HARDWARE TO PROVIDE PRINT SERVICES.
We know. That is why our program logistics are designed to enhance and bolster existing efforts. You’re already paying for a poster to be designed, why wouldn’t you want another 25,000 people seeing it?
- WHAT IS THE SALES MODEL?
We’ve been able to adapt multiple models to make this work. Our 1st goal is profits for our distributor-partners. How this works in reality is part of consulting services when we start the program in your area.
Most distributors pay an average of $1/Account/Month! yep. ONE DOLLAR, when it’s in full swing and working co-operatively with brands.
- WILL YOU JUST SELL THIS TO MY COMPETITORS?
NO. Right now, our software pricing is adjusted to give a distributor exclusivity over their market; no other distributor will be able to do this, and the benefits will be all yours.
- DO OUR ACCOUNT REPS “SELL” THIS?
Yes. Reps will receive sales training and we’ll work with them during the set-up phase. This has been designed to BE EASY FOR YOU. Once set up, its set up forever.
However, we like to look at it like you “provide” this to your accounts as an incentive for them carrying your products and helping you meet brand sales goals.
- WE HAVE AN ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM AND IT WAS A FLOP. WHY WOULDN’T THIS FLOP TOO?
The program works for YOU regardless of their engagement.
- Obviously, we hope we have an engaged Account. The idea is that every day they can engage, track/respond to fans, update their website, and see stats all in ONE place. We can link them over to your ordering platform from this system.
- If the account isn’t engaged, you still win. You still get their recommendations for your brands and enhance your promotions. You also now have stats to show just what YOU are doing for them to make sure they are profiting. What are your competitors doing?
- WE SET UP AN ACCOUNT, HOW DO THEY LEARN?
Our program is all about Building Relationships. We’d love to come to your warehouse to meet your Accounts and help explain how to use/get the most benefit out of the software. Preferably over new beers in your portfolio. We look forward to making this a sales-op for you as much as education for them.
- IF WE START THE PROGRAM, WHO KEEPS IT GOING?
Our program is a 2-part process. 1st, we set up your accounts. Then, there is ongoing content management.
We execute all levels of the set-up process. On-going we feel is best run by your team; YOU have all the design assets and set up all the events, so it’s our belief you could do a better job than us anyway. Also, this program is about SERVICE AND RELATIONSHIPS with your accounts. We make it easy, but if you need more help we provide consulting services to make sure the program works for you and your accounts.
- IS THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY?
Yes and No. We’ve worked with bars for 12 years, so our system is 100% customized to engage bar owners and make it easy for them. That said, some of the bar’s features can be found in other single tech competitors. Our system combines select features from multiple industries and social-tech companies. If it’s not broke, why fix it? Our program was pieced together to help our bar owners get features they needed, then tweeked for their logistical purposes. There is no more comprehensive and targeted platform in the world. This is revolutionary.
- I LIKE IT, BUT HOW DO I PAY FOR IT?
Our #1 Goal is to see you profit DIRECTLY from the program via sales (long-term efficiency, competitive advantage, and brand building are all next). We can track any kind of stat in this, and help you find something that will work to get the brand to pay all the costs as part of the consulting services we provide.
We answer the phone on you behalf for any questions.
Every single page and feature has a quick 2 minute video.
We provide education to your customers. It’s a great sales op!
