Fullerton, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Stretche.com launched a new website designed to harness the power of deals 50% off or more to bring new consumers to local businesses while reminding past customers to come back. Stretche.com was created with the purpose of revitalizing local businesses while addressing the new consumer buying behavior of coupon-clipping caused by the down economy.
While Stretche.com attracts consumers to its site with incredible deals that are 50% off or more from retail value, it also gives merchants the flexibility to design the promotion to suit their needs. Stretche.com merchants are able to set a limit to the total number of deals available and once all the deals are downloaded, the merchant can immediately re-post a new promotion. This control setting was developed primarily to address the backlash from collective buying websites where merchants were not allowed to cap their deal bringing about unmanageable overhead costs with the influx of new customers immediately after a deal was posted. Unfortunately, according to merchant feedback, this increase of new customers usually lasted only a few months, but rarely generated any repeat business.
In comparison to other collective buying websites, Stretche.com does not take a portion of each deal downloaded. In fact, for a limited time, merchants can sign up for free advertising and post deals for free. Stretche.com is accepting local businesses in six categories: restaurant, beauty, auto, activities, health and services.
This site is great for consumers too! With collective buying websites, once the deal has passed, that’s it - no more deal. Additionally, these websites take payment on the day of deal download. Who’s to say if the consumer will actually use the deal? In fact, oftentimes people purchase deals only to let it go to waste. With Stretche.com, consumers download the deal for free. Consumers pay the merchants the advertised price directly at the time of redemption. Stretche.com caters to consumer needs by making the deals available when needed, at the consumer’s convenience.
Stretche.com encourages customer loyalty and simplifies buying behavior. Since Stretche.com is a directory of amazing deals in your local neighborhood. Consumers type in their zip code and keyword and press search. All the local businesses offering a deal in that area will populate the page with real-time, location-based deals. Most people naturally choose a business offering a deal rather than one that is not offering any incentives. Lastly, if the service or product was closeby, consumers are more likely to come back since it is their local area.
Stretche.com combines 3 points in consumer buying that will push it to the forefront in online promotions websites—amazing deals, immediate accessibility, and placing flexibility both in the hands of merchants and consumers.
