How is it used for Fundraising?
The Jatly smartphone app is a community communication tool, where local businesses can advertise. The advertisements are in the form of coupons sent to the phone user. When the user receives a coupon – which usually come through in batches of about 4 at a time, they show up in the phone’s notification bar. They then select the notification and the phone will display each coupon in turn about 2 seconds apart. As each coupon is reviewed, the user taps the big accept button to move to the next one, and that tap – earns the school the value that is displayed against the coupon – normally around ten points. So to accept 4 coupons will take you about 10 seconds, and you will earn about 40 points or about 40 cents..
