How it all started

Yoann Jaspar @ekomaio

After working for 2 years as software engineer, working for a terribly managed company, I lost my energy and passion for what I was doing. After a life-changing experience, I decided to take control of my own future and started working on Ekoma.

Marketing strategies used by retailers are very much disconnected from their customer communities. Email marketing campaigns, social media posts and other technics are over-used and are now seen as constant harassment for most of the potential customers. The lack of wholesome message disrupts the trust that could be destructive especially for small and medium businesses.

Loyalty and referral programs are a solution to this problem.

If you add an affordable price (even for small businesses), engaging and beautiful features, a high degree of customization and without the need for engineering skills, you get Ekoma.
