Santa Monica, California – iPhone users can now “Kick Up Their Boots”, “Throw A Bib On”, “Throw One Back”, “Look Fabulous” or even “Work Out” at their favorite places. Mergelocal is a free iPhone app that pays users cash redeemable thru PayPal for spreading word-of-mouth about businesses and events by allowing users to quickly rate, post tips and check-in with personality.
“Our core goal is to modernize word-of-mouth advertising by providing businesses and events with an easy way to reward visitors for spreading the word about their business. To achieve this mission, we’ve focused much of our effort on creating the best user experience available”, says Michael Wong, CEO and Co-Founder of Mergelocal. “The ‘fun button’ is a cool shift from the days of a bland ‘check-in’ to your social networks.”
