Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 29, 2010
Austin-based aDealio is taking the daily deal craze to a new level with its launch in Austin a few months ago, and turning on Dallas officially this month. aDealio’s initial focus is on one big deal a day, either a local or nationally recognized brand.
Like the popular Groupon.com site, but without the disadvantage of having to wait for others to get the deal, aDealio shares deals every day, and members can click to buy instantly. Most deals are at least 50% off normal prices, some offer up to 90% discounts. The first people to buy the deal get an additional 5% off. If members refer their friends, they can accumulate aDealio Bucks, and get deals free.
For businesses, aDealio is a great way to give a captive group of consumers a special offer unique to them. Turn on and engage these motivated customers and they’ll spread the word to friends, and keep coming back. aDealio is targeted, engaged marketing, not the yellow pages. aDealio doesn’t cost a thing to businesses up front for the promotion, rather the businesses only pay for sales that actually happen.
“aDealio works with local businesses to help them connect to motivated customers – existing and new – with all the technology tools available today,” said aDealio founder and serial entrepreneur Ryan Koonce. “For consumers like me and my friends, aDealio shares an amazing deal each day. We are so pleased by the response in Austin in only a few short months, and are excited to launch in Dallas and other cities in short order.”
Live in Austin for a few months now, aDealio has featured deals for some of Austin’s most regarded shops, restaurants, spas, boutiques and events like Austin Deep, Downstairs Apparel, The Girl Next Door and Reform Pilates.
Dallas is live now, and building similar brand offers with more local brands on board every day, like Cretia’s on McKinney who recently offered 50% off food and drink and Fit & Beautiful Medical Spa. Dallas-local businesses can sign up with aDealio now at http://adealio.com/business.
At least 12 more cities will turn on, as soon as interest from local consumers merits, throughout the summer months. And in July, in addition to the daily deal, aDealio will be launching a new section of the site, Everyday Deals, which will offer ongoing, longer term coupons and discounts just for aDealio members.
Austin-based aDealio uses the Internet to generate real-world foot-traffic to local businesses by offering consumers great deals that can be purchased for one day only. Businesses can share their offers with aDealio’s members and benefit from aggressive marketing and the incentive of a limited time offer. Bootstrapped by serial entrepreneur Ryan Koonce, aDealio has turned on Austin and Dallas with live daily deals, with more cities following.
