Tylar Masters, president of Tylar & Company, along with long time friend and colleague, Marc Richardson, is all set to launch a new mobile application in June 2016. The app translates Tylar’s 20 years of marketing experience into a vehicle to help small business retail stores attract, acquire and retain customers.

HereBuy is a revolutionary mobile app for local retailers and shops to promote their business and engage with new and existing customers. It’s an affordable solution for local retailers and small businesses to attract and retain customers. Email marketing has become a nuisance, is often impersonal and non-targeted. Social purchasing platforms like Groupon charge costly commission fees. Social media has become inundated with ads, often overlooked as clutter.

Features of this new mobile app are as follows:

As a shopper, you create a quick profile, allow location services, enter shopping preferences and categories of shopping interest. You can search for and select your favorite stores too! You will be notified when there is a sale, promotion or special at your favorite store or within your categories of interest and range of radius. You can access store profiles as well as share with your friends via social media. You choose if and when you receive notifications.

Remember that time you wanted to buy a new dress but didn’t have time to go to the mall? Or when you found something you LOVE online but didn’t want to wait for it to be shipped? Introducing FLIP SHOP! Upload a photo and create specifications of an item you’re looking to buy local! Stores reply to you with an item they have for sale in store that matches your request! When a store sends you an item you like, simply hold the item and go try it or buy it!

As a store, create a quick storefront profile and add categories of items you carry in store. You’ll want to immediately add photos, location, contact information, etc. Once you’re set up, you can log in to add new sale items, promotions, specials, discounts and coupons. Each promotion or special you add will be broadcast out immediately to shoppers who have selected to be notified of your store’s promos and/or promos from the category you specify. You can even add your current customers to the app and invite them to your HereBuy storefront!

Additionally, HereBuy is dedicated to giving back to the community and has a charitable element integrated directly into the application. If you are willing to donate items that do not sell in your store to a local charity, we will discount your annual membership. You will also receive a HereBuy charitable badge for your storefront!
