Thank the Monkey (TTM) is a mobile app that allows users in any city or town to find coupons and information from local merchants. Thank The Monkey has one goal: To help local consumers connect with local businesses via mobile devices. We do this by serving information and coupons that consumers can redeem - right from their smart phones. The local coupon deals can be shared peer-to-peer through various social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Text Message and Email. Thank The Monkey is easy to download, open, set up and use. As users travel, the TTM app allows their location to be assessed, and the coupons are displayed - closest in proximity first - using the GPS functionality of iPhone and Android smart phone technology. Since the database is all proprietary - ALL of the content is LOCAL, RELEVANT, and RELIABLE. Because TTM is way more than just coupons and offers, it appeals to information seekers as well as the bargain hunters. Each participating business’s address, phone number, Google/Apple map location, video, business hours, slogan, logo and other relevant information is displayed within the TTM App. The TTM brand is now available via franchise license agreements to any market within the criteria TTM establishes.
