Foursquare. Facebook. Twitter. Yelp. Groupon.
Well, the list goes on and local businesses in US certainly need a tool to understand social media in their own language.
EyesAndFeet, a Chennai based startup is targeting the local businesses in US, especially the restaurant category.
The product has two key modules – See and Do.
‘See’ module enables a business to understand what the competition is doing (in Facebook/Twitter etc) and enables a business to drill down to category/city specific data.
‘Do’ module helps a business to get social and push updates to selected social media channels like Facebook/Twitter/Yelp/Groupon and Foursquare.
Why is the company focusing on US businesses (and not Indian)? Well, the founder, Lakshamanan Narayanan earlier was cofounder of Vembu.com and has substantial experience selling in US (and ofcourse he believes in making dollars over rupees, as he replied to a similar question during UnPluGGd ).
Monetization ofcourse will follow the freemium model (mium part being driven by value-added services).
