"Our Year-over-year sales increased by 35%, after switching to Rain Retail."
Our integrated point-of-sale system allows you to easily add product information in one place and your POS and website update simultaneously. No more double, or even triple managing your inventory. Easily manage your inventory, classes, services, customer accounts, vendors, purchase orders, rewards, gift cards, and more, all seamlessly in one system.
When your website inventory is powered by your point of sale, life gets easier... a lot easier. When customers search Google to see who has craft supplies they want to buy, they can see you have it in stock in real time. Our customers tell us they see a significant increase in foot traffic to their store because consumers find them online, and see the products are in stock.
Our all-in-one system includes the marketing tools you need to attract new customers and keep them coming back. This not only includes the ability to offer a customer rewards program, and coupons, we also have our newly released Text Reviews Tool to greatly improve online reviews, email marketing, including automatic coupon emails to customers that haven’t been back to your store in the last 60 or 90 days, automatic birthday coupon emails, and more!
Quickly add customers to your email list right at the register or allow them to sign up on your website. When you're ready to send an email blast, simply create your message and choose the list you want to send to. Email marketing just got a lot easier.
You can even filter and segment which customers you email right from within our system. Want to email select customers who bought a specific product to promote a related new arrival item? No problem!
Do you want everyone to know about the new color line you just received? Use the text marketing tool and quickly send a text to your customers. Since humans look at their phone every 30 seconds, the word will get out fast.
When you get done helping a happy customer, the Rain POS allows you to quickly send them a text requesting a quick review. From their phone, your customers can easily give your business a positive online review. It won’t take long and you’ll be standing head and shoulders above your local competition in the search engines.
When customers haven’t purchased anything in 60 or 90 days, the Rain system can automatically email them a coupon with your choice of a percent or dollar-off value, sharing new products you've received, inviting them to take advantage of your limited time discount to get them coming back.
Automatically email customers a birthday coupon each year to let them know you're thinking of them, again with your choice of a percent or dollar-off value to encouraging them to make a birthday purchase.
Send periodic emails with your new product arrivals to your customers. It’s all automated. Rain will generate and send the emails for you. Just another way we save you hours of time.
Setup automatic text message reminders to go out to your students before class so they don’t forget to come. You can also send text message updates to particular class rosters regarding changes or cancellations.
Our customers' websites are mobile responsive, SSL secure, and pages load extremely fast, making your site optimized for Google search. Because our customers' websites are integrated with their store POS, we are able to show Google inventory in real-time, making it easy for your products to be found in local search results. Our system levels the playing field to compete with national retailers, helping you drive more foot traffic into your store.
The integrated social marketing tool makes it easy for you to tell your store Fans/Followers about special sales and your most popular products.
