HOUSTON, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help its business tenants become more dominant in the social media market, property giant Weingarten Realty is introducing Gobza™ as an added benefit to its business clients. Gobza™ is part of Weingarten's ShopCentric initiative to help small businesses build sales, awareness and mobile capability.
"Gobza is a way to help the small-shop retailer to manage costs, while still being able to offer discounts," said Bill Goeke, Weingarten's vice president of property management. "Not only is it a great way for our clients to reach out to new customers, it creates additional dollars for their businesses."
Gobza™ is a revolutionary internet and mobile medium that connects shoppers and businesses in a virtual shopping mall 24/7. Businesses pay nothing to advertise, create and control their offers on Gobza's easy to use platform. Shoppers purchase what they want, when they want it, with no "daily deal" deadline or revenue sharing. But what really makes Gobza™ different is its patent pending model that allows every person, business and nonprofit to create a continuous revenue stream simply by sharing Gobza™ with others via Facebook, Twitter and email.Weingarten plans to roll Gobza™ out to its Texas properties first, and then expand nationally. The firm's portfolio contains approximately 300 neighborhood and community shopping centers and other properties across 22 states. "Gobza was created with the business owner in mind," said Duncan Dodds, CEO of Gobza™. "We're excited to help Weingarten's clients create new offers to draw more customers and more sales to their businesses." Gobza™ benefits not only businesses, but shoppers and nonprofit organizations. It's free to join and provides huge rewards for active members. Every time a shopper referred to Gobza™ buys something, or anytime a business referred to Gobza™ sells something, the referrer then makes a commission. This could potentially mean additional profits to a business, an added income to a shopper or a new revenue stream to a nonprofit organization.
