“I represent the small to medium sized businesses who have told me they cannot afford to offer Groupons and other daily deals because of how expensive they are,” said Brian Thomas, Founder, Chief Noise Maker and CEO.
San Francisco CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
CashOff announced today, during the TechCrunch Disrupt event, that its Founder, Chief Noisemaker and CEO has challenged the Chief Executive Officers of Groupon, Living Social and Amazon to a $10,000 “winner take all” boxing match to prove once and for all whose coupon website is best. The proceeds will be donated to a charity of the winners choice.
CashOff has developed a web based application that allows a business to make a coupon in minutes and then print it or distribute it via email, or on social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Unlike Groupon and the other daily deal sites, which require the merchant to offer a substantial discount and then pay commisions of up to 50% of the revenue of any “deal” offered by the merchant, CashOff offers its do it yourself coupon management system as a free version with paid plans starting at $10 per month without any revenue sharing whatsoever.
In this day and age, consumers expect there to be deals when they go shopping, but most small businesses cannot afford the revenue sharing the daily deal sites require and so they end up losing consumers to other companies that buy into the game. Whereas CashOff is different, because of its low cost and marketing effectiveness, CashOff appeals to every business and has already started to go viral.
A recent report from Juniper Research suggests that the mobile coupon market will be worth $46 billion by 2015, a large jump from the $5.6 billion projected for the industry this year.
“I represent the small to medium sized businesses who have told me they cannot afford to offer Groupons and other daily deals because of how expensive they are,” said Brian Thomas, Founder, Chief Noise Maker and CEO. “I am willing to fight on their behalf and I am also willing to put up $10,000 to prove their point, that daily deals sites rarely if ever make them money. My Uncle Lefty Thomas, a successful and professional boxer popular 70 years ago, taught me how to box at a young age and it looks like it is coming in handy now. We think our low cost, easy, do it yourself coupon application is superior to the daily deal sites and I am willing to risk a black eye to prove it.”
