Businesses try daily deals for free with Qype
Qype, Europe's leading consumer reviews site, has launched a brand new business package which allows businesses to trial their own daily deal, at no additional cost.
By signing up to Qype's platinum package, businesses can enjoy all the benefits of a premium listing on Qype, with the addition of a free daily deal mailout to QypeDeals' growing database.
The package gives businesses the opportunity to test the daily deal market, and keep 100 per cent of the revenue. The offer provides an accessible route into a marketing channel which has seen phenomenal growth over the last two years.
Businesses can take complete control of their offer and publish a top deal for one day in their city. Restrictions can be placed on the number of deals available, and there is no commission to pay, no matter how many deals are sold. The only requirement is a minimum discount of 50 per cent. Throwing the traditional commission-based model out, additional deals are available on a low-cost, fixed fee basis.
QypeDeals offers a powerful marketing tool for businesses, with exclusive deals emailed directly to consumers' inboxes and promoted via all of Qype's social media channels. The site has been a huge success since it launched in the UK last year.
Almost 400,000 businesses are now active on Qype across Europe, with over 10,000 new businesses joining the site every month. Qype has grown organically into a pan-European local advertising powerhouse, opening mobile and web advertising to thousands of local businesses, and now providing a low-risk way into the lucrative daily deals market.
"We are excited to be able to offer our businesses the additional benefit of QypeDeals. Daily deals have exploded in the last few years, and it's fair to say that not everyone involved has had a good experience! Giving businesses the opportunity to try the daily deal model, on their terms, will take away some of the risk and could potentially open up a whole new market and sales channel for SMEs," says Ian Brotherston, CEO of Qype.
