Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
PerkSpot, the leading provider of corporate discount programs, today announced the launch of its new collective buying service, crowdclick. crowdclick features valuable daily deals from local merchants and is the first daily deal service designed to connect merchants with employees of local corporations.
crowdclick helps local merchants benefit from the collective buying power of PerkSpot’s 4+ million members. “At PerkSpot, we strive to bring our customers the best deals at both a national and local level, so crowdclick was a natural way to provide great deals in local markets,” shared Stephanie Hurlbert, PerkSpot’s VP of Marketing. “Additionally, it gives our corporate partners a new way to support local commerce and the merchants in their community, about which they feel strongly.”
Those who stand to gain even more from the new channel are local merchants struggling with how to use deal sites without only attracting fickle customers looking for a bargain. PerkSpot’s established corporate discount programs provide a platform in which merchants can reach people who work near their establishments. “We see our daily deal service as a more strategic customer acquisition tool for merchants because they are reaching the people who work nearby and are more likely to become loyal patrons and to come during off-peak days/times,” explained Hurlbert.
The crowdclick service will launch in Chicago, but aggressive expansion plans are in place to meet the needs of PerkSpot’s client base, which has a national footprint.
