Vancouver’s SideBuy.com knows how competitive local marketing can be for small businesses so they launched a new section of their website to help them get started. Sidebuy.com acts as search engine for all daily coupons giving consumers a variety of ways to search through the numerous deals and coupons that are available. Getting the attention of these potential customers takes time and resources that many restaurant owners, bakeries, car repair shops and retailers simply do not have. Now, with a few clicks, they can be on their way to increasing the traffic through their front door.
“We’re very excited about working with local merchants to improve their business,” says Ramin Behzadi, Sidebuy’s co-founder and CEO. “We’ve seen the benefits to marketing with daily deals and so have the 30,000 vendors on our site. We would like to clear the path for those who have been thinking about marketing this way, but haven’t tried it yet.”
On this new section of Sidebuy.com, local businesses can get a quote or advice on how to run a deal. Or, if they are ready to start offering a deal, they can get themselves listed immediately. Additionally, Sidebuy plans to offer a “Business Center” where merchants will be provided with further social engagements with potential buyers. Here, they can market their promotions directly to Sidebuy users, and even sell their products from the site.
“Imagine having an online store hosted by a company that takes care of the stressful parts of the sales transactions, so businesses can focus on what they do best,” said Ramin. “It doesn’t cost the business anything to be listed on our site. It only gives them another competitive advantage.”
From cupcakes to car racing, people are shopping for discounts and deals online every day. Users are searching for deals at any given moment, and now, with Sidebuy.com’s mobile app, at any given location. In order to stay competitive in this economy, merchants need all the marketing resources they can get. These businesses don’t even need to know what kind of offer they should do. They can rely on Sidebuy to get them started.
Merchants can offer daily deals on everything from movie tickets to tennis lessons. Sidebuy.com acts as a search engine for daily deals. It offers access to all coupons without having to read several different emails or search on several different discount coupon websites.
