Business Warrior Takes Action with Hownd
Even with the vaccines being deployed, small business owners are facing a harsh winter. With many cities and states requiring a variety of COVID restrictions, small business owners must use the tools and technology available to them to survive these hard times. Business Warrior has a new version of their software being released this month and is announcing their expanded partnership with Hownd to help small businesses get more customers and increase revenues.
The two companies have had some early success with their pilot program and are now rolling out nationwide to over 6,000 locations. Hownd, Inc. provides an effortless and zero-risk software platform that helps local brick and mortar retail businesses generate customer foot traffic and revenue. Hownd makes a merchant’s promotional offers easy for nearby consumers to discover, claim and redeem digitally through email, a merchant’s website, Facebook, the MyHownd® mobile app, digital signage, and their MyHownd WiFi service. The platform is ideal for restaurants and bars; amusements, attractions and entertainment businesses; providers of health and beauty services; lodging; and specialty retail.
Hownd has helped thousands of small businesses generate over $7 million in revenue during the pandemic by enabling them to sell support vouchers and gift cards on the platform. Unlike other platforms, Hownd merchants receive their revenue immediately upon a consumer’s purchase of these offers — a cash lifeline many merchants have relied on to keep their lights on and staff employed. Hownd is zero-risk because they don’t charge a set-up fee, there’s no monthly subscription or contractual commitment, and participating businesses only pay a flat fee when Hownd brings them customers.

“Business Warrior and Hownd are both focused on helping small businesses get more customers in the most cost effective way imaginable. Our technology paired together is a powerful combination,” said Jonathan Brooks, President of Business Warrior Corporation.
