By leveraging the power of a qualified group, their offer has more value to the merchant and then gotchoo can help connect consumers and merchants to the best deal.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
With deal-a-day websites popping up faster than the speed of light, the team behind gotchoo decided it was time to inject new life into the group buying concept. What is gotchoo? It’s a new website where consumers ask for the deals they want, rather than merely selecting what deals are being pushed to them.
Here’s how it works. Suppose a customer decides he wants a $50 meal at a local sushi restaurant for $30 and he wants to share the deal with 20 of his friends. After he requests the deal, the team at gotchoo match makes on his behalf to make the deal happen. It’s a way for customers to get the deals that they want, and it’s also a way for businesses to benefit from the trendy group buying concept in a safe and qualified way.
“We got tired of the typical deal-a-day websites - the push model just doesn’t account for individual desires,” explained Kathryn Kai-ling Ho, Head of Marketing and Operations of gotchoo.com. “Instead of shoving a deal down the user’s throat, we thought ‘why not let people request the deals that they want?’ Users will be excited about their deals, merchants will get more loyal and engaged customers! Everybody wins.”
Of course, not all deals can be fulfilled. Requesting 99% off on a 95-inch plasma TV isn’t going to happen. For users to give their offers the best chance of getting created, they need to create reasonable requests with flexibility. They also need to get their friends to sign up for the deal to show businesses how many customers they could gain by accepting it.
“To get the very best deals, users are going to want to get all of their friends involved,” said Ho. “By leveraging the power of a qualified group, their offer has more value to the merchant and then gotchoo can help connect consumers and merchants to the best deal for all parties.”
For anyone who’s tired of getting the same ole deals-of-the-day emailed to them, gotchoo could be just what you’re looking for. Visit gotchoo.com to learn more and to start requesting the deals YOU want.
