Oakland, CA, June 11, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Gorilly, the leader in providing shoppers with the opportunity to try great products before they buy, is proud to be a part of Peers, an organization dedicated to making the sharing economy work for the people who power it. As a featured company/service, Gorilly is alongside other sharing economy leaders such as TaskRabbit, Etsy, Airbnb, and Uber, to name a few. Gorilly is the first of its kind – dedicated to helping shoppers shop smarter by giving them the chance to see and feel products in person before buying directly from manufacturers.
Peers wants to make it easier for workers to find, compare and manage work in the sharing economy. And with Gorilly listed on its site, Peers users will be able to learn more about how to show their favorite products through Gorilly and make some extra money in the process. Users on Peers can link directly to Gorilly where they can Sign Up and List a Product. Gorilly offers Peers users a new way to leverage what they already have (products from the best brands in the world participating on Gorilly) to earn what they need in a flexible manner that fits their lifestyle. Gorilly is honored to be amongst other leaders in the sharing economy who are transforming the way people work and live. Together with Peers, Gorilly is paving the way for a disruptive new way to shop that will have global implications for the retail industry and the people who support the brands and products they love.
For those new to Gorilly and showrooming, here’s how it works: people who own products from a participating product manufacturer list the products that they would like to show to others on Gorilly (in return for earning a commission on any resulting sales) – these people are called Product Gorillys. Shoppers then search Gorilly’s site to find products posted by a Product Gorilly near them, and the two connect in person at their convenience – at a local coffee shop, dog park, or cafe – to discuss and experience the product. With Gorilly any location can now be a showroom – all it takes is two people, a great product, and a location of your choosing. The customer receives an online discount code for purchasing directly on the brand’s website, while the Product Gorilly receives a commission on resulting sales. It’s a win-win-win: customers get tactile experience, Product Gorillys make money for showing their favorite products, and brands love it because they are able to leverage their current customers to obtain both new customers and future Product Gorillys.
Gorilly is becoming a proven sales channel with global potential. To learn more about how Gorilly is disrupting the retail industry as we know it and changing the way people shop, please visit www.gorilly.com.
About Gorilly Inc.
Gorilly is an innovative new web application that allows shoppers to try great products before buying them directly from manufacturers. Co-founded by life-long friends and retail entrepreneurs, Ted Horan and Hollis Kelley, Gorilly provides a connection between existing product owners (dubbed “Product Gorillys”) and potential customers by allowing people to easily meet in person to experience new products first-hand. Ted and Hollis have always shared a passion for great products, and feel that the best test when making a purchase is to experience in person, an option that does not exist for many brands in the rapidly changing retail landscape. This new social tool allows customers to try before they buy in the convenience of their own schedule and ease of their own neighborhood. It’s as simple as two people meeting.
