New App Version, New Geo Location features

Hey everyone. Happy Record Store Day Month! Just in time for the big day!

We just wanted to share a quick note that we have released an updated version of our app this past weekend. It’s usually a good idea to set your phones to auto-update so you have the latest version.

If you don't have our app, then you should. Please read about our new feature.

With this latest version, you now have the ability to set an invisible net up around your store to snag customers with a message about your store. This is Geo location or Geo fences that customers will trigger when they enter into the area you define.

I will begin setting up geofences for my app customers to get this process started. These will not be active until you make them so. In the meantime, if you would like to get a headstart, you can go ahead and setup your own Geofences. It’s pretty straightforward and can be found in your admin under “App Geo Location”. 

You first must click “create new” at the bottom. I’m including some links here that help you determine the latitude and longitude of your store. You can then set the mileage for the fence and most importantly the feature we had to get working before releasing it, the spam controls. These are so the person that drives by your place on the way to work every day doesn’t get bombarded with your message. This spam control can be set to the frequency of your choosing, we suggest 14 or 30 days. Plus you can have it reset the counter if you change your message.

Here is a site that helps you pinpoint the exact spot of your store to enter the coordinates:

Go crazy,

All the best,
