About Twongo, LLC:
Launched in 2010 by Brad Halferty, Twongo, LLC is a Cary, N.C.-based company that combines discounts, social media and marketing in a unique team-buying service, benefitting both businesses and consumers. Derived from the Chinese concept of “tuangou,” or “group buying,” Twongo partners with businesses to offer daily and weekly discount deals via daily subscription e-mails, Facebook, Twitter and Twongo’s website. As more individuals purchase the deals or “buy-in,” the discount increases, resulting in a significant consumer savings on goods and services as well as the acquisition of new customers and word-of-mouth marketing exposure for businesses at the fraction of the cost of traditional advertising. With a rapidly growing local subscriber base, Twongo saved Triangle residents over $1 million during its first year of operation. In addition to the Triangle, the company operates in Wilmington, N.C., and the Kelowna and Whistler markets of British Columbia, Canada. For more information, visit http://www.twongo.com.
