Business model

1.DIRECT REVENUE: We charge merchants a flat monthly  subscription fee. For that fee, merchants can create an unlimited number of offers in real time and send up to a fixed number of emails and sms messages from the system to their current customers. After the fixed messages in that month have been used, they can buy more messages from us. 

Please check out the plans page here for more details: http://mobiqpons.com/plans

 

2 PARTNER REVENUE: We also partner with several publishers of free papers, magazines, TV stations, radio stations, etc who have an existing sales force. They sell our service bundled into their service either under the MobiQpons brand or under their own brand. We charge publishers a setup fee and a monthly fee. Some of our partners are This Week Magazines in Hawaii, the largest tourist publication in the USA, and Los Angeles News Group (LANG).
