AdXplore is recruiting iPhone owners to become Independent Sales Reps (ISR’s) who will work directly with locally-owned businesses to create effective, low-cost mobile-optimized advertising and coupons on the AdXplore ad network. In addition to its advertising search capabilities, the free AdXplore iPhone app (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/adxplore/id369958123?mt=8&uo=6) has every tool an ISR needs to set up a business account, then create and post their advertising entirely from an iPhone without ever leaving the premises.
Most small business owners and managers are too busy running their business to learn a do-it-yourself advertising site like Google AdWords. An AdXplore ad rep will set up their mobile advertising (http://sales.adxplore.net/how-we-create-ads/) for $150, less expensive than almost any other form of advertising, with $120 going directly back to the ISR as compensation (http://sales.adxplore.net/compensation/), keeping jobs and dollars in the community.
Applications are now being accepted via the company’s website, http://sales.adxplore.net (http://sales.adxplore.net).
“Our goal is to put a location-based mobile-advertising representative on the street in every one of the 90,000 cities in the U.S. Some of the larger cities will accommodate 10 or more mobile advertising reps.” says Steve Russ, founder of AdXplore. “With the benefit of absolutely no start-up costs beyond the iPhone they already have, we can put thousands of people back to work immediately and empower the Think Local/Shop Local movement at the same time. We’re providing the missing ‘Search Local’ piece necessary to fulfill their mission.”
AdXplore is currently developing free search engines for every other mobile platform that allow consumers to search, shop and save locally, to keep dollars circulating in our own communities. Unlike the social networking check-in model of other location-based services like Facebook Places, Foursquare, Gowalla and Booyah, AdXplore maintains everyone’s privacy by allowing them to search for and shop anonymously. On the AdXplore network, advertising is not targeted nor pushed (http://main.adxplore.net/push-vs-pull-advertising/) at consumers. With AdXplore, people search for what they want when they’re ready to buy—no gimmicks, games or strings attached.
“We’ve created a competitive advantage for locally owned businesses by providing them with cost-effective state-of-the-art mobile advertising and we’ve made corporate social responsibility our number one priority in this effort to reinvigorate our economy.” says Russ.
