Get City Dealz Helps Jazzy Nola Reach New Orleans Visitors in Time for the Big Game and Mardi Gras Celebrations

Get City Dealz, the recently launched, exclusive to New Orleans, deals site teamed up with the newly opened French Quarter boutique, Jazzy Nola, to help them both reach out to both tourists and visitors just in time for both the Big Game and upcoming Mardi Gras celebrations. The teaming up of two new businesses met with great results as utilizing Get City Dealz helped Jazzy Nola sell out of their first order of wine tumblers and are on their way to selling out of their second order.

“Utilizing Get City Dealz helped us with creating awareness of not only our products, but also that we were a new boutique that just opened in the French Quarter,” explained Carrie Lis, co-owner of Jazzy Nola on Toulouse Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, LA.

Lis had some unique wine tumblers made in a distinctly New Orleans style with a gold fleur de lis imprinted on the tumbler. Great for both wandering the French Quarter during the Super Bowl or on the Mardi Gras parade route, Lis knew these would be a hit among both tourists and locals. However, having just recently opened their doors, Jazzy Nola had a limited reach. That’s where Get City Dealz stepped in.

Once the wine tumblers hit the Get City Dealz website sales on the wine tumblers took off, a lot faster than Lis had anticipated. With that success in hand she started to place more items on the deal advertising platform and saw a rise in foot traffic to her site. The number of shares and likes to her own Facebook fan page started to rise as well and people from outside of the New Orleans area called in to order her wine tumblers.

“We designed Get City Dealz to be both search engine and social media friendly platform so that local businesses could have one place to come in and promote their products and services across several different networking platforms,” explained Liana “Li” Evans, CTO of Get City Dealz. “We immediately recognized the power of people sharing things they like, and the people of New Orleans really love to share a good thing with their friends, family members and neighbors. GetCityDealz.com helps them to do that easily.”

Next up for Lis to promote on Get City Dealz are their Roger Goodell voodoo dolls. Fashioned with “G-O-O-D-E-L-L” beads and a heart that has a black pin and fleur de lis through it, these voodoo dolls which are hand made by Lis’ mother and business partner Laura Blackburn, are also a huge hit with the local New Orleans crowd. When the store first opened they sold out of their first supply in a matter of days and they expect a big rush on these as well once the deal hits the social networks.

“This has been a really big boon for us, working with a new tech company like Get City Dealz who understands the budget and time constraints of a small business and we’re so glad they helped us get off the ground with our marketing efforts. This has truly been an awareness driver for Jazzy Nola.” Lis commented about new technology company.

A video is available to learn more about what Jazzy Nola has and how Get City Dealz did help build awareness on YouTube. For more information about Get City Dealz you can call Pat Hall, CEO, at 917-509-2152.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
