Getting started is easy

Step 1

Local entrepreneurs (like you) get started by licensing their own Village Vesl-powered mobile app (and really cool website to manage it all).

Step 3

The licensee gives his or her mobile app and service a name. This is entirely up to the licensee, but typically an app's name relates in some way to the identity of the licensee’s territory.

Step 5

The licensee gets trained up and comfortable, and then begins to market the service to residents, small businesses and all other entities within the selected territory - schools, youth sports organizations, churches, home owners associations, local government – anyone and everyone (we have plenty of helpful tips and suggestions for this part as well).

Step 2

The licensee selects a desired territory in which to launch his or her app – usually the city or town in which the licensee lives.

Step 4

We build and launch the licensee’s app, which includes building a corresponding website, creating a logo, and placing the app in the iPhone and Android app stores. The whole process takes less than 60 days.

Step 6

Small businesses that subscribe to the service - for access to the tools below - pay the licensee a monthly subscription fee.

All you do is sell

Village Vesl handles everything for the entrepreneur – app development, launch, maintenance, feature enhancements, training and more. The entrepreneur focuses solely on the marketing of his app to small businesses for a monthly fee and residents in his community, who use the service for free.

In addition, there’s a period of on-demand training available to you at anytime while your product is being developed and launched - usually during the first 60 days after agreement.

Village Vesl is the only mobile product of its kind, with no direct competitors and tools that provide small business customers with the power of direct, one-to-one contact with interested consumers where they spend the majority of their time – on their mobile devices.

The role of the entrepreneur

Local entrepreneurs who operate a Village Vesl service are making a major difference in their communities. They’re promoting commerce and loyalty at the local level. They’re helping establish and strengthen the social dynamics of local communities by providing an efficiently priced mobile marketing solution for small businesses. And they’re helping solve communication challenges for local businesses and merchants in a digital age that has moved predominantly to the mobile device.

A social purpose

Village Vesl was created with a social purpose: to provide communities large and small a mobile service that enables residents, small businesses and the many groups and organizations that make up our towns and communities, the ability to stay connected in safe and exciting ways.

A different approach to local

We are local, with local representatives living in the towns where they operate a Village Vesl service. These are our neighbors, they live in our communities, and they have a genuine interest in what goes on in the community.

How do you make money?

As a Village Vesl licensee, you’ll have your own app with a name and brand of your choosing. Your app will have features that enable small businesses in your territory to reach and promote themselves to local residents. Your target market is significant because your service will cater to brick-and-mortar businesses in retail, food, entertainment and others, as well as service and at-home businesses like local dentists, doctors, financial professionals and just about all others.

Each of these businesses will pay a monthly fee at a price you set, and your revenue will grow month over month.

See what's happening inside Village Vesl

While it provides features for residents, small businesses and everyone else in the community, Village Vesl creates particular value for small businesses and merchants, who can engage with individual members of the community who live within three to five miles of the storefront.

Location Messaging

Virtual messages (we call them flags) can be left anywhere in the physical world. As an intended recipient approaches one of these invisible flags, his or her device wakes up and reveals the message that was left. You can enable your small business customers to reach consumers near the storefront, on the highway, or even at or near a competitor's location. Allow them to deliver real-time relevance and bring context to the consumer journey.

Bringing value to your customers

Allow small businesses to extend their brand and reach consumers anywhere.

Near the storefront, on the highway, or near a competitor's location.

Help them deliver real-time relevance that brings context to the consumer journey.

Watch the quality of their customer service improve.

The small business can now remain top-of-mind when the consumer isn't on site.

And help them surprise and reward nearby shoppers with deals and special offers.


Show Me Love

Another feature that serves both the public and small businesses, Show Me Love puts the consumer in control of the shopping experience. If interested in a special deal or offer, a consumer just visits the SML section, taps open the business category of interest, and initiates an ‘auction.’ In real time, the consumer is asking the business community for some love. And based on his or her physical location at that moment, they'll get back the best offers available to them from local merchants. Everyone wins.

Groups

In addition to reaching the community as a whole using the flags, SML and Bulletin Board features (below), small businesses can do great things here by creating groups of loyal customers. As an alternative to traditional email newsletters, businesses can invite customers to their group(s) and utilize the feature to reach residents on a 24/7 basis, without bombarding consumers who may otherwise not be interested. Groups are also available for use by residents, who can create public or private groups for clubs, organizations, meet-ups, schools, churches, youth and recreational sports teams, and any other association or affinity-based group. Every group has separate chat, bulletin board and flag capability, as well as administrative control for private group owners.

Bulletin Board

This is the hub of the service, providing a 24/7 real-time overview of whatever is happening in the community. The Bulletin Board is accessible by the public and encourages all users to get involved. Participating businesses are presented on the Bulletin Board with a Featured Sponsor placement, which appears among the routine conversations that take place as part of the feature’s posts.

Chat

There are a variety of ways within the Village Vesl service that a consumer can reach out and chat directly with individual businesses via text message. The Chat feature allows consumers the convenience of communicating in ways they’re most comfortable today. The immediacy and convenience of the feature also enables businesses to improve the quality of their customer service. Consumers have the option to chat with a business (1) anytime they trip a business flag, (2) by accessing the feature from a business’s Featured Sponsor placement on the Bulletin Board, and (3) from the business’s dedicated partner screen. The Chat feature is also available within the individual public and private groups that make up the service, which enables any group member to take the conversation out of the larger group and chat directly on a one-to-one basis with any other member, including a business owner.

Community First-Responder

The alert feature significantly raises incident awareness by putting first-responder activity in the hands of all community members. It gives everyone peace of mind, whether it’s the schools, churches, HOAs, real estate owners, and even the city governments. Because of their contributions, participating businesses are helping keep our communities safer. Really. Without subscription revenue being generated from local small businesses, the Village Vesl service in your community likely wouldn’t exist. So a special thanks should go out to partner businesses whenever possible. In fact, displayed across the bottom of each Featured Sponsor placement on the Bulletin Boards is a tagline that recognizes each business’s support.

Launch your startup and make an investment in yourself and in your community.
