It’s been a long road, but we are finally ready to launch Jingling and change the way shoppers and local businesses connect. At Jingling we’re entrepreneurs, so we know how hard it is to enjoy life when you operate a business and still have a bunch things on your personal to-do list. We wanted our service to save you time and money, so you can spend more time doing the things you love, like delighting customers and being with friends and family.

Jingling started with a couple of simple questions: “What if, when you were looking for something – whether it be a service, new shoes, a great Happy Hour, or even a local experience – you didn’t have to search for it but were able to directly link to the merchants in your area that provide what you need”? And, “What if the local businesses were in as much control of the experience as the consumers were”?

If you run a small to medium-sized business, this opens a whole new world of possibilities – shoppers instantly coming to you and letting you know that they need your service. Then, instantly put yourself in front of the customer right when they need you.

We’re a small team from Austin, and we’re proud to launch Jingling to our community. I hope it helps to strengthen our local economy and gives us all a little more time to do the things we love most.

Thank you for all the support and encouragement that so many have shown me as we got to this point. Be patient with us, give us feedback so we can make Jingling even better, and wish us luck as now the hard work begins.

I am excited and hopeful that we will all be more prosperous in the years to come.
