DealsNear.Me Releases First Generation App for iOS
App presents local businesses and consumers with a unique medium for social discovery.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
DealsNear.Me (http://www.DealsNear.me), the real time aggregator of commercial social marketing messaging, is pleased to announce the launch of its first generation mobile app for iOS. The free DealsNear.Me app introduces a radically different way of positioning local businesses and services to attract new customers and retain current ones. The app allows users to discover real time deals, offers and specials disseminated by local businesses through social media platforms, filtered by category and distance directly from their iOS devices. Its proprietary algorithm reviews all collected social media data and extracts only commercially-relevant messaging for display. This first-of-its-kind app dramatically increases the efficacy of social media marketing and distribution. It currently features 15,000 businesses in 11 major U.S. markets.
While social media is the fastest growing marketing channel, issues relating to the discovery of this messaging by consumers directly and negatively impact the ROI for businesses. However, with the DealsNear.Me app, the benefits for businesses and services are immediate as it automatically amplifies marketing messages to a much larger audience of potential new customers. By aggregating, filtering and geo-tagging the messaging, DealsNear.me alleviates many of the obstacles for consumers to discover the best commercial deals and specials. Over 560,000 deals have appeared on the website since 2010.
Because businesses control their own social media accounts, they do not need to change their behavior in any way to be included. According to Levi Bergovoy, Founder of DealsNear.me, “I am extremely excited about our launch. It has taken several years of research on social media usage from both businesses and consumers to build this app. We believe our app will provide greater exposure to businesses by making it easier than ever to find their deals and specials. Businesses can focus their efforts on their messaging and not have to worry about followers. The app really pulls out the most relevant content that is useful for me and other consumers.”
DealsNear.me, a Chicago-based company, was founded in mid-2010 on the premise that real time social media marketing would be far more effective if consumers could discover it how and when they wanted, especially for discovering current deals, offers and specials. DealsNear.Me allows users to connect their Twitter and Facebook accounts for easy sharing of deals with their connection. In 2013, DealsNear.Me will continue to expand its reach into additional cities and continually add new businesses.
