Pleasantville, NY (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
Primary Wave Media, the nation’s leading provider of Intelligent Vanity Telephone Number™ marketing services, today announced its 1-800-DAILY-DEAL service will officially go live on December 8 at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California. BiteHunter, the first real time search engine for dining, and Advent Visual, a leading provider of innovative outdoor advertising products, are partnering with Primary Wave Media for this debut to engage consumers and instantly deliver deals and discounts for restaurants, retail stores and service providers based in the renowned shopping and dining district. Consumers who call 1-800-DAILY-DEAL will be given the opportunity to have these hyper-local discounts sent to them via their mobile phones.
Unlike other group buying services, 1-800-DAILY-DEAL enables consumers to immediately access hyper-local deals and discounts on their mobile phones on an on-demand basis. This is achieved by using powerful, permission based, geo-location technology that determines exactly where callers are at any given time to serve up on-demand offers via the company’s proprietary Intelligent Number(℠) Voice2SMS technology.
“Partnering with BiteHunter and Advent Visual for our roll out at the Third Street Promenade will demonstrate how daily deals can be delivered in an innovative new way and underscore the full potential of the group buying service,” said Tim Heslin, CEO of Primary Wave Media 1-800-DAILY-DEAL.com, LLC. “We are confident the constant crowds of consumers and the more than 500 stores and restaurants in the area will soon be very familiar with 1-800-DAILY-DEAL and the value we deliver.”
Third Street Promenade, which is located close to the Ocean and closed to vehicle traffic, is a favorite hangout for tourists and locals looking to shop or get a bite to eat. Popular businesses include Abercrombie & Fitch, Adidas, Banana Republic, The Gap, J. Crew, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Sur La Table and Z Gallerie, as well as many independent stores, unique boutiques and vintage clothiers. Restaurants in the area include Benihana, BOA Steakhouse, Buca di Beppo, Chipotle, JiRaffe, Michael’s, Subway and Sushi Roku.
How 1-800-DAILY-DEAL Works
When people call 1-800-DAILY-DEAL, a geo-location system determines where the call is coming from and whether it is placed on a landline or mobile device. Callers are then delivered opt-in discounts or purchase deals at participating nearby businesses. Users who accept offers are entered into a CRM database to receive ongoing deals and promotions, a substantial value add for brands and marketers using the platform.
The platform is a turnkey entry into the competitive daily deal space that can integrate seamlessly into multiple business initiatives. For instance, publishing partners can add their own deals to 1-800-DAILY-DEAL offerings and “upsell” the service to their current and prospective advertisers as a key component to made-to-order marketing packages. It can also be used to bring consumers back to publishers’ host sites for additional news and content, increasing site visits and generating ad revenue and valuable data capture opportunities.
