What is Square Integration?

You might wonder what Square integration means. Simply, we’ve enabled Beambox customers to integrate their Square POS systems with their accounts. This means that you can add guest profiles into Beambox using the information you capture with Square.

Examples include phone numbers, email addresses, names, etc., essentially any information you would collect to send a receipt. Once you have this information, use Beambox Blast or Interactions for marketing purposes. Integrating your Square POS with Beambox allows your Email and SMS marketing to branch out to potentially new and repeat customers.

Why You Should Integrate Square POS With Your Email Marketing System

There are various reasons the partnering of email marketing and Square benefits your brand. At the top of the list is the simplicity factor. You’re busy running your business. Therefore, you should have a system in place that offers a one-stop shop for all your marketing and sales needs. That’s where the Beambox and Square integration help you out. Here are the main reasons you should combine email marketing and Square.

  1. It’s easier to segment your customer base. Integrating your POS system and email marketing offers an overall perspective of your customers. You gain insight into their purchase history, preferences and even their demographics. You can use this information to segment your customers and send targeted, relevant marketing campaigns.

  2. Increased customer engagement and retention. Not every patron you serve is a repeat customer. Encourage repeat patronage by offering Square guests tailored emails or text campaigns. For example, you can create a specific automated email for clients that “Is a Square Guest” AND “Last Visit” is “More Than _ Days Ago.” If your customer receives a marketing campaign that appeals to them, they are more likely to engage. Further, they may become loyal to your brand or business.

  3. Automated marketing Interactions. We briefly mentioned this above, but you want something simple and easy to use. Take your mind off scheduling your marketing campaigns when your integrated email marketing and POS system does it for you. Your brand appears responsive when your integrated marketing system automatically sends alerts. Users can set up more advanced filters utilizing Beambox Interactions.

  4. Improved overall customer experience. An excellent product/service paired with even better customer service makes your customers want to return. Use your integrated system to collect feedback and resolve issues they might have.
