Foursquare is an amazing application that perfectly fits into our plan of promoting small and mid-sized businesses.
Chicago (PRWEB) September 30, 2010
DealsNear.Me (http://www.DealsNear.me), a local deal discovery service combining real time deals and geo-location features, is pleased to announce a completed integration with Foursquare.
Deals from local businesses on Foursquare will now be automatically included into DealsNear.Me results, complementing the hundreds of deals a day already being pulled into the site from businesses on Twitter. This is extremely exciting as Foursquare is one of the fastest growing social applications with more than three million users. Many thousands of these users are local businesses using the application for promotions and marketing. According to DealsNear.Me Founder Levi Bergovoy, “Foursquare is an amazing application that perfectly fits into our plan of promoting small and mid-sized businesses. Adding Foursquare deals to our site will greatly expanded our scope of local deal content, benefiting both the businesses publishing the deals and people looking for great deals.”
DealsNear.Me continues to see strong growth in its second month. Since its August 2010 launch, over 37,000 deals have been added to the site’s database from now over 5,900 local businesses across 11 North American cities. DealsNear.Me has many enhancements on the horizon including a self-service ad system for local businesses, allowing them to manage their own ad placements and the inclusion of deal content from additional sources.
Launched in August 2010, DealsNear.Me is a local deals discovery service. It serves to connect users with deals located “near” them using a geo-database of local businesses, filtered by business category. It also provides industry education and analytics to small and mid-sized businesses on the best ways to use social media to engage with customers. DealsNear.me is based in Chicago, IL.
