When Dan and I founded Flowtown we had the dream of building simple and powerful marketing tools that would help small businesses get and keep customers.
Today, I am thrilled to announce that Flowtown has been acquired by Demandforce.
If Dan and I continued to build Flowtown independently, Demandforce would be exactly the kind of organization we’d envision building.
Demandforce’s customers are dentists, auto-garages, salons, spas, etc. And with 24 quarters of over 80% year-over-year quarterly growth they, now reaching 80 million consumers, are a leader in marketing automation for the small business.
Now, as part of Demandforce, we will be able to move our vision and products forward 10x faster and work at a scale we could have only dreamed of before.
What does this mean for our existing customers?
All our technology and products are being integrated into the Demandforce platform, with some new things yet to be unveiled.
As for each product:
- Flowtown (Gift Marketing), which helps businesses with social gifting campaigns, will be integrated into the Demandforce D3 product. This will supercharge the D3 referral management system. We will also continue to support customers of the current version for the next 2 months.
- Timely.is, now with over 26,000 professionals, will remain exactly the same and will become Free for absolutely everyone. In addition, Timely has become the social publishing tool inside the Demandforce D3 product.
- The Flowtown social marketing blog will continue to crank out some of the best social marketing content found on the web.
Many thanks to all
To our 50,000+ customers and users, thank you for your trust and for being a part of the Flowtown story. To our small team of 5, you guys are incredible and I’m excited to continue building amazing things with you at Demandforce, and to our awesome group of angel investors, thank you for believing in us and making it all possible.
Demandforce is changing the world of marketing for the small business. What they’ve built and continue to build is incredible.
We are humbled and excited to now be a part of the Demandforce story.
