Before I try to explain what this amazing app does, let me take a quote from the Sonar website:
What is Sonar?
Sonar is a mobile application that uncovers the hidden connections you share with people nearby. We bottle the 1000s of connections that you miss every day- friends, friends of friends, fellow alumni, likeminded strangers- and put them in the palm of your hand. Sonar helps you use the information you share about yourself online to connect with the person sitting next to you.
Why is Sonar important for your wedding business?
You can take and sync your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Foursquare accounts to you Sonar account. Lets say you are about to check-in at the Rose Quarter for a Blazer game. Once you check-in you can see who from your accounts is also at the Blazer game, plus you can see that someone named Joe Schmoe is at the game who is friends with your friend Jane Doe on Facebook. You might choose to message Joe Schmoe and say, “hi, how do you know our mutual friend Jane Doe?” Joe Schmoe says, oh, yes, Jane, she did our flowers for our wedding last year!” You message back to Joe saying, “Oh, wow, Jane and I work together often because I am a wedding planner.” From there on you might realize you are sitting close by one another and you two meet for drinks at half-time because his best friend is getting married and has been talking about hiring a wedding planner. Bam! Networking at its best!
Give it a try, it’s a free app. Here is the link to Sonar’s website: www.sonar.me.
