Here at Western Market, we’re all about keeping it local. We try to fill our market with as much local produce and grocery items as possible, and we’re always looking for ways to promote other local businesses. We were recently introduced to a Michigan-based company with a high-tech vision of local business interaction.
Mobibo, a product of the Gravy Network, is a smart phone app which automatically delivers local information & discounts to your pocket. It’s an amazing way to immediately see the happenings of local businesses within your vicinity. It’s an app that’s completely free, and the best part is that every time you view a local promotion, you get paid for it!
From Mobibo’s Facebook page:
Formed in 2010 and headquartered in Michigan, Gravy Network is the unique vision of two brothers. Involved in the digital universe since 1998, Zac and Josh Ball have prided themselves on always being on the cutting edge of technology. Gravy Network was created to empower all types of business to harness the power the brothers found in technology; the ability to advertise and market companies within the digital realm. Currently, Gravy Network offers tools for business to engage consumers on the internet and mobile devices, as well as take advantage of the booming social media trends.
