(By the way – Pebble loves you, too.)
Add or select recipients, enter the appointment information and click send. The recipients receive a simple text message. A patient can accept this appointment, preventing others from accepting it, and both you and the patient are notified immediately. Simple.
99% of recipients will open and view it.
50% will open your offer within the first 60 seconds.
95% will see it within 3 minutes.
3 minute average response time – 2400x faster than email
(2.5 days for average email response).
20x faster than making a single phone call.
Because recipients who receive your offers can see how many offers are left and when they expire. The result is that they’re motivated to take immediate action for fear of missing out (scarcity). In fact, we have 7 powerful emotional buying triggers built into Pebble that drive immediate buying behaviors.
Commitment and consistency

It’s (almost) as easy as sending a text message. You simply write the offer, add whatever controls and limits you want, select who to send it to and click send. That’s it. Pebble handles everything else. It’s simple and flexible and the entire process can take as little as 3 minutes.
Current marketing solutions come with a long list of problems because you can’t control who is buying, when, or how many. That limits what you can do because you can’t control what will happen.
Pebble bypasses all of those concerns and let’s you control everything; who receives your offer, who can buy, when, where, and how many.
Because you control everything you can send offers to specific customers that you would never make publicly available. This allows you to surprise and delight people while increasing your sales.
For every dollar you spend on marketing, a big percentage is wasted paying to reach people who will never be your customers. It’s costly and wasteful. Pebble turns that model on it’s head by letting you instantly reach the people who are most likely to buy from you, your existing customers and their immediate network.
Most software companies are designed to take your money, ours is designed to let you keep it.
We have a simple subscription so you know exactly what you’re paying to Pebble every month without hidden costs or fees. We don’t skim a percentage of your sales or charge you based on how much money you make. It’s your business and your sales. You keep it all.
Cash flow can be an issue for any business. Pebble gives you a simple button that you can press connect with your customers and sell on-demand, any time you need. For the first time you can make real-time pricing and sales decisions.
Common marketing and advertising gives you no control over who buys from you, restricting your options.
Pebble is different, letting you select exactly who receives your offer and who can accept it. The result is freedom to provide the best service to your best customers without risk.
Pebbles tracks every interaction with your offer. You can see how each offer is performing, and every action that each recipient takes. You can use this information to make sure that you’re meeting your goals, but not leaving money on the table.
Simple. Send an offer that includes bringing in a friend.
For example a restaurant sends a killer lunch offer but only for groups of 4 or more, a auto-services store sends a discount price if you have multiple cars serviced on the same day, or a physician offers an extra service if you bring a new patient in at the same time.
Because the system is so flexible and controlled, it makes it easy to use your existing customers to drive new ones.
Surprise and delight your customers. Texting is highest rated contact method for customer satisfaction compared to all other communication channels.
91% of people prefer to be texted rather than called.
89% of consumers want to use messaging to communicate with businesses.
81% of Americans text regularly - 2x as often as they call.
People prefer text most for scheduling or changing appointments, and making or confirming reservations.
91% of all US mobile users keep their phones within arms reach at all times. There’s no better way to reach your customers.
Over 99% of text messages are opened, while only 22% of emails are opened.
Sending 1 text is 20X quicker than a phone call.
With more tools to control of your cash flow, you can sell more of your unused capacity and fill more of your off-peak schedule, maximizing your revenue.
Pebble gives you tools that allow you to make faster decisions every day. You can control your sales and cash flow, fill your empty capacity, and build customer loyalty with zero additional cost, making your business more responsive and nimble than ever before.
Most businesses can’t motivate customers to pre-pay for there services because there’s no sense of urgency, but with Pebble’s built in emotional buying triggers you have the tools to drive customer buying decisions in ways that benefit your business and your cash flow.
Intermittent reinforcement is much more effective in than continuous reinforcement. For example, casinos program slot machines to pay out on a schedule that keeps players playing.
Pebble allows you to do the same thing by unexpectedly rewarding customers with a tiny “thank you”. It doesn’t have have to be big or valuable, but it should be unexpected.
Make smarter business decisions by making a lot of little bets and learning from them before you double down.
Because you can send to just a few people, you can try different offers to see what happens without any risk. For example, you might send different offers to small groups and see what happens. Send 10% off, 25% off, and 50% off to small groups of 20 people and keep track of what happens. Perhaps you only need to give 10% off, or perhaps a freebie or upgrade will work better.
Pebble allows you to remove the guesswork and and make better decisions for your business.
Build relationships and co-market with other local business owners.
Pebble’s flexibility doesn’t tie your hands. You might bundle your services with another business and both benefit. And because you can limit the offers and recipients, there’s no risk.
For example; get a complimentary latte at The Beanstalk after your free Saturday morning spin class at The Sweat Shop, or get your oil changed on Wednesday before noon and we’ll throw in a car wash at our friends place just down the street.
If you have peak traffic times (like restaurants) you can use Pebble to drive some of that peak traffic to slower times by offering an incentives. Customers love the recognition and feeling of inclusion and exclusivity, and you end making more total revenue.
Use Pebble to increase buying frequency by sending offers to bring customers back before they would normally return.
For example; Auto service customers may bring in their car every 4 months on average to have the oil changed but you want them to come back more frequently? Using Pebble you can send them an offer at month 3 that includes an upgrade or freebie that they can’t resist. That results in 4 visits per year instead of just 3 and an immediate 33% increase in sales.
Any time based inventory you don’t fill is a complete loss.
Current solutions don’t work because they’re too slow and don’t have the controls and limits you need.
Pebble solves this problem because it works in real time and gives you complete control.
Because you can limit every offer, customers are trained to read and respond fast. The result is that you have a direct line to your customers whenever you need it.
