Denver, CO, November 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- SoBiz10 (www.sobiz10.com), the only social networking site that connects Denver metro area customers to their favorite businesses for updates and Denver discounts, today announced a daily group couponing feature offering deeply discounted deals for coveted local products and services.
Unique to SoBiz10 is the site’s combination of group couponing with social networking. Unlike other providers of Denver coupons, like The Denver Post’s Daily Deal or Groupon, customers are not only the beneficiary of the initial discounts, but also the ongoing engagement and communication with their favorite local businesses through the SoBiz10 social network and synchronization with merchants’ other networks, such as Facebook and Twitter. Users that purchase Denver deals through SoBiz10 will subsequently have the web-based tools to keep in touch with that merchant, and can receive coupons, catalogues, sales announcements, special incentives and a full range of messages.
“SoBiz10 is a win-win for both the consumer and the merchant,” explains Marion Mariathasan, Founder and President of SoBiz10. “Subscribers leveraging our social network to interact with merchants in their areas are on the receiving end of more information and Denver deals on their favorite products and services. At the same time, local businesses that leverage SoBiz10’s proprietary communication tools and group couponing feature can attract new customers in their area and communicate with them more seamlessly, supporting a higher patron retention rate.”
Each day, SoBiz10 features between one and four Denver coupons highlighting deep discounts for products and services across the metro area, making everything from dining out to admission to local activities more affordable. Users can purchase the deal(s) they want, post customer reviews for the businesses they frequent and follow, and spread the word about money-saving Denver deals to friends and family through the SoBiz10 social network. Users also benefit from a philanthropic element to the site’s group couponing functionality, whereby a donation on each transaction supports various local non-profit partners.
SoBiz10 debuted in January 2010 as a social network offering more than 45,000 Colorado merchants the necessary tools to communicate with customers. With 80 new merchant enrollments recorded each week, the SoBiz10 community is built entirely around members’ interest in the latest happenings at their favorite businesses, offering members the opportunity to receive e-mails about local business’ new products or services, coupons and promotions– all with a few clicks. To become a member, visit www.sobiz10.com/bemember, enter an email address, and start saving on deals from the best local businesses.
SoBiz10 is the only social networking site leveraging the power of group couponing to help small local businesses communicate with customers and in turn allow customers to keep up on what their favorite businesses are doing, saying, and offering. Through a single site, business merchants can send coupons, sales announcements, special incentives, and a full range of messages to both their existing customer base and potential new customers. In addition to these outbound communication initiatives, businesses will benefit from the referrals and cross-networking of their customers, and customers of other merchants, driving traffic to their websites and to their stores.
