Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 9, 2010
Zeepo, a Toronto-based startup that offers a 99 cent deal on iPhone apps for 24 hours only, is launching their new site today.
Harnessing the power of the group buying phenomenon, Zeepo partners with an app developer each day to offer a deal on a high quality iPhone app. Zeepo sends the daily deal straight to subscribers inboxes. Along with deals on great iPhone applications, Zeepo’s subscribers will find incentives to build a buzz for the daily app feature by encouraging their friends to check out the app by promoting it using their online social network.
“We’re thrilled to be the first site to offer group buying for iPhone apps. Our model lets us showcase cool apps to our subscribers, and giving them a great deal at the same time, it benefits everyone involved.” said Andrew Smales, Zeepo.com founder. “As people have seen from sites like Groupon there is huge value for both the customers and businesses when group buying comes into play. We’ve built up a pretty excited group of subscribers during our prelaunch phase, it’s great to have this open to the world now.”
Each day subscribers receive an e-mail featuring the day’s 99 cent app deal with information about the app, the normal retail price, and the minimum number of people who have to buy-in to unlock the extra promotional items that the app’s creator is putting up for grabs. Once the magic number of apps have been sold, we start giving out promo items as a thank you to members of our Zeepo community who have talked about or bought the apps. The loot can be anything from gift cards to t-shirts. The more buzz our users build by using Twitter, Facebook or blogs, the better their chances to get the gifts.
Zeepo, launched in September 2010, features a daily 99 cent deal on iPhone apps. Zeepo uses the idea of group buying to get iPhone developers to reduce the price of high quality iPhone apps for one day. For more information, visit http://www.zeepo.com.
