Best Credit Card Processing Solutions for Small Retail Businesses


In this day and age, no one can deny the power of mobile devices.

Whether you want to look up a restaurant, contact a friend, check the weather, or buy designer shoes, the essential one-stop-shop is right there in your pocket.

Have you been to a sporting event or concert recently? For better or worse, the fact remains that more and more people tend to keep their faces buried in their smartphones.

Why not use that to your small business’s advantage?

By shifting your small business to mobile, you are able to stay in your customer’s consciousness throughout the day. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Think we are exaggerating? Consider this: the average person checks their phone 150 times per day.


Let that sink in for a moment and then we’ll discuss the benefits of your small business going mobile.

Benefits of Going Mobile

Mobile Loyalty at its Finest

Now that we understand the volume of exposure going mobile can achieve, let’s talk about some of the other benefits.

The best opportunity for your business to succeed on a mobile platform is by customizing an app.

Utilizing an app for your small business can lead to these exciting features:

  • Push Messaging: communicate and send notifications to your customer in the app
  • Merchant Dashboard: Collect understandable customer analytics
  • Geo-Fencing: push messages when your customers are nearby
  • Beacon Messaging: You can greet members with notifications when they enter your business
  • Digital Invites: Facebook, Twitter, and email imports
  • Facebook Integration: Login, check-in and referrals

You can also use digital punchcards. This dips into more of the rewards aspects of going mobile.

Did you know that at least once a month, 58% of shoppers make purchases from the companies whose rewards programs they belong to?

Digital punch cards are excellent opportunities to reward your valued customers for continually purchasing your goods or services.

Implementing Mobile Loyalty

The Power of EMS and FlokSmall Business Mobile App

With Electronic Merchant Systems’ Mobile Loyalty, you are able to seamlessly reward your customers for shopping at your business and engage with your customers while they are there.

EMS utilizes Flok.

You can geo-target, reward for birthdays, spark customer engagement on your social media platforms, and much more.

Targeting your customers is simple with geo-fencing and beacon messaging

Geo-fencing is establishing a “boundary” around your premise (within 5-10 miles).

Beaconing sends out messages, typically via bluetooth connection, to app uses within a 40-foot range.

If your small business hasn’t tapped into mobile, this may seem a little overwhelming. But you’re not alone!

EMS provides white glove assistance in building, consulting, and helping you with Flok. Once our team completes the set-up, your program will be ready to use in just two business days.

That is two days away from motivating your customers, optimizing your small business for mobile, and creating awareness opportunities.
