So you're browsing a local boutique and find the most adorable, must-have boots—but you have no one there to share your euphoric-I-love-these-knee-highs-with-all-of-my-soul moment. Or perhaps you’ve been on the fence about that cute little table in your favorite decor store and could use some feedback from a few style-savvy friends before committing. Or maybe you’re planning a girls' day out and want to know where the best deals are. Introducing Bandwagon: the app…for that.
Bandwagon is a social network for sharing local shopping finds, offers, ideas and inspiration.
Shop, Share, Inspire
Shop: use Bandwagon app when you’re shopping around town and spot something “share-worthy." It’s a great way to give (or get) the 4-1-1--while supporting your local merchants.
Share: share your fave finds (products, services, and offers) with friends, and view theirs too. When you see something great, snap a quick pic and post it with a comment (Shout) on your Bandwagon wall for your friends (Bandwagon followers) to see. Create a virtual wish list or pin board of your finds. Plus, see what your friends are up to, where they’re shopping, and all the great finds they’ve discovered.
Inspire: share creative ideas, inspire new ones, get feedback, and keep tabs on the latest local trends. Benefit from a community of like-minded shoppers dedicated to sharing the inspiration and local finds they love. With Bandwagon, you’ve got a network of creative shoppers scoping the newest and best, 24/7.
Bandwagon app (iPhone/Android) allows you to:
• Post comments (called “Shouts”) to your Bandwagon wall for your friends to view.
• Post “Check Ins” at locations you visit (GPS-enabled phone required). A Check In is a comment/Shout tied to a specific geographic location.
• Receive offers from local merchants, view them by list or map, and redeem them with your app/phone’s screen upon checkout whenever you’re ready (no pre-purchasing required for Bandwagon offers).
• Snap/attach pics of items you’ve purchased (or would like to) to your posts/Shouts.
• Add friends, view their wall activity (Shouts/Check ins), view friends on a map (last Check in location), add comments to posts, re-Post (reShout) a friend’s posts to your own wall, and send private messages.
• Full FB and Twitter integration to invite friends and post your activities externally to other social networks (optional).
