SmartDeal Online Advertising (www.smartdeal.com.ph) is officially opening for business! The company offers daily deals on the best stuff to do, eat, see and buy in Philippines.
SmartDeal, through their interactive website (www.smartdeal.com.ph), matches buyers and sellers in an exciting win-win situation. While consumers enjoy great deals, they are also encouraged to share them with family and friends via word-of-mouth and viral marketing. That said, the merchants gain new customers and publicity at zero risk. The attractive deals for Smartdeal’s customers are made possible by merchants recognizing the significant benefits of being featured on SmartDeal.
This system is called group buying. Deals are brought-in in groups and that’s why a really low price is afforded to the buyers. The website promises at least 50% discount in all the deals featured. SmartDeal is the first Mindanao-based group buying site. It aims to extensively promote Mindanao-based small and medium enterprises, with efforts zoomed in on the key cities of Mindanao such as Davao, General Santos, Butuan, Surigao and Cagayan de Oro.
How the Deals Work:
Merchants do not have to pay anything to advertise with SmartDeal. In fact, SmartDeal will even provide the editorial; sponsor a short write up and take pictures of their business/ merchants to be featured on the website. When the deal is about to close, SmartDeal arranges a meeting with the business owner/ manager and will agree on a minimal commission once a certain quota of coupons are sold. After that, members can log on to the company’s website at www.smartdeal.com.ph and purchase the deal online.
The deal is activated when a total number of people agree to buy, encouraging members to share the deal with family and friends.
Depending on the deal, with a minimum of about 30 hits, members will get a discount coupon of up to 90 per cent that is redeemable within a stipulated time.
On both ends, obtaining the best quality of product and value from the merchant for SmartDeal’s members (and the merchants’ clients) is a joint promise.
An e- receipt will be sent via e-mail and the members who purchased the discount vouchers will need to show the printed receipt or an e-receipt file to the merchant in order to avail the item/ service at its discounted price.
If, at the end of the day, no deal is sold, the business STILL gains through the advertising that Smartdeal will provide while we are promoting their featured deal.
Sounds good to you? I already bought a spa voucher that includes an hour of massage, foot scrub, body scrub, manicure, pedicure and a hot oil treatment…and for P375 only! And get this, it’s in this posh, Spanish-inspired spa along downtown. Can’t wait to claim my spackage! 🙂
