Lansing Regional Chamber Partners with New Social Gifting Company
Holland-Based Conpoto Allows Chamber to Provide "Treats” Redeemable at Local Merchants

(Lansing, Mich.) – The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Conpoto, a social gifting company based out of Holland. Conpoto allows the Lansing Regional Chamber to send "treats” to current and prospective Chamber members, which are then redeemed at local Chamber merchants who are enrolled in the program.

Local Chamber merchants enrolled in the program include Cravings Gourmet Popcorn & Soda Market, Nuthouse Sports Grill, Beggars Banquet, Jimmy’s Pub and Harrison Roadhouse. Chamber members who would like to be a merchant for Conpoto are asked to contact the website or phone number below.

"The Lansing Regional Chamber is so excited to partner with Conpoto and provide this innovative concept to current and prospective Chamber members,” said Tim Daman, president and CEO of the LRCC. "This is a huge opportunity for merchants who are able to use Conpoto to create awareness of their brand and drive more customers to their business without having to invest a single dollar into marketing.”

Launched in 2011, Conpoto is a web-based service that allows users buy drinks and food at affiliated restaurants as "treats" for friends or clients, who can then redeem the treat with an emailed redemption code. Users can also buy treats through Conpoto's free apps for Apple iOS and Google Android devices.

The program is simple:

· The recipient receives an email with the treat and redemption code. Examples of treats include a cup of coffee or an appetizer.

· Bring your smart phone with email access to the establishment or print the Conpoto email.

· Provide the establishment the redemption code and enjoy your complimentary item!

"This program can be leveraged by the business community in a variety of ways by providing your clients or staff a personalized gift to their favorite establishment, all while the process remains simple, easy and flexible to use, "said Matt Ahearn, Conpoto Co-Founder. "We also provide comprehensive analytics to give you full visibility on how Conpoto is working for you, allowing you to track redemption rates and be more adaptive to your clients.”
