Local Deal is already a powerhouse in the deals space; with this partnership they will become even more competitive by offering in-depth information about the cities and businesses they promote.
Belleville, IL (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Juggle.com, a leading online reference resource, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire local deal provider, LocalDeal.com, a collective buying website that offers deep discounts on local services, restaurants, entertainment and events.
The acquisition will strengthen Juggle’s product portfolio by adding a website targeted at local value shoppers. Juggle’s CEO Stephanie Leffler believes this acquisition is well aligned with Juggle’s focus on creating unique and compelling shopping experiences online. "This acquisition allows Juggle to add value to our existing geographically targeted content." Juggle.com features content on places worldwide, including top cities such as New York. "In addition, Local Deal is already a powerhouse in the deals space; with this partnership they will become even more competitive by offering in-depth information about the cities and businesses they promote."
LocalDeal sends free daily emails notifying subscribers of local discounts and uses happy customers to help spread the word about promotions via social networking sites and email.
Mike Austin, founder of LocalDeal.com, built the site to help small, local merchants level the playing field. “LocalDeal provides a guaranteed ROI by delivering prepaid customers to a business’s front door. This partnership will allow LocalDeal to expand our current deal sourcing, syndication and personalization efforts,” noted Austin. Juggle plans to retain Austin as the leader of the LocalDeal division. “Mike will continue to lead the team building the LocalDeal offering,” stated Leffler.
“Our top priorities for the next two quarters will be expanding our white label capabilities, strengthening deal coverage and enabling deal aggregation,” said Austin. He noted, “There are no limits to the passions of American shoppers for online daily-deal discounts, and our hope is to expand the resources available to them. The more deals we can present, whether through aggregation or organic resources, the better we can serve both local merchants and consumers.”
