Sure most business owners probably have a Google Alert set up for their business. They may also use some kind of clipping/monitoring service and then of course, a smart business owner (startup or not) is using some sort of social media monitoring to see what people are saying and doing about their business. Well now, Columbus OH based startup FlyMuch has launched a new photo monitoring tool for brands.
Did you just have a really great burger from CheeBurger Cheeburger and share it with the world? Did you have a bad experience at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and post a photo of your server? Well whatever it is, business owners, whether they like it or not, are constantly having photos take in their business.
Perhaps there was a great 21st birthday party with a lot of smiling faces at TGIFridays or your 5 year old hit a hole in one at a local miniature golf spot. Businesses want to see it all, the good, the bad, and with VenueSeen, the ugly.
More after the break
Venueseen currently aggregates photos with the business name in them or in the tag from FourSquare, Instagram and Foodspotting. They have Facebook support coming soon. Venueseen imports the photos into a dashboard which gives the business owner access to share the photos themselves, and interact with customers. Maybe they want to share that cute birthday party pic or contact the person who said their food was disgusting, VenueSeen makes it easy to handle both.
VenueSeen is a b2b branch of Flymuch’s consumer facing product which allows people to share trade recommendations and link photos to locations.
. “Bringing down content and associating it with a location is not really that easy a thing to do because they all have different IDs and all kinds of nuances around how consumers tag photography,” founder Brian Zuercher said in an interview with Betakit.
To use VenueSeen the brand has to first claim their location on FourSquare or set up a new one. VenueSeen offers plans for all sized businesses, $20 per month for single locations, $40 per month forum to 5 locations and customer pricing for larger businesses and enterprise. This gives the business a focused monitoring service for just one thing, photography. Within the VenueSeen dashboard companies can share photos with Twitter, Pinterest or Facebook. For the beta test FlyMuch enlisted the help of the Columbus Zoo which of course has lots of pictures taken at it.
