SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - Reply!, Inc. today announced that MerchantCircle.com has added Reply!'s LeadStore functionality to MerchantCircle.com's Merchant Mobile App. A Twitter-like feed for leads, Reply!'s LeadStore allows merchants to pick and choose leads from a real-time feed of relevant consumers sourced through the Reply! Marketplace. The mobile LeadStore offers prospects across a wide range of categories, from Home Improvement, Insurance and Legal Services to Catering Services, DJs and Wedding Planners.
The Merchant Mobile App gives local merchants a simple way to create, upload and manage content anytime, anywhere, as well as respond to customer inquiries, manage their business listing, monitor reviews and engage with their merchant and customer networks. With the addition of LeadStore, merchants can now also purchase qualified local leads for their business directly through the app.
"Many merchants have very little time for sales and marketing, and are generally offline while they're serving customers or working on projects," said Paul O'Leary, GM, MerchantCircle. "Using the LeadStore functionality in the Merchant Mobile App, merchants can now source new business leads while they're on the go, making it even easier for merchants to focus on what they do best, managing their business."
MerchantCircle.com was the first media site to integrate Reply! Marketplace technology earlier this year, enabling the site to re-launch as a consumer destination that helps consumers quickly move from local search to local transactions. This new mobile integration is another example of how Reply! Marketplace can be extended to different environments, including third-party media sites and mobile apps.
