San Jose, CA, Dec. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (SAN JOSE, Calif., - December 3, 2013) - Buckaroo.com, a leading provider of local shopping, news and events, ushers in the holiday season with steep discounts to subscribers across North America. The aggregated deals are formatted into Buckaroo's 'What's Hot' e-newsletter, informing users on what's for sale this year.
"Discounts are crucial to the organization and display of shopping on Buckaroo," said Alan Fisher, Co-Founder and Chairman of Buckaroo's parent company Iron Speed, Inc. "Our subscribers favor large discounts and we love giving them more ways to save."
Despite a 55% growth in items purchased through Buckaroo.com, the localized hub meets the challenge of working with merchandising from thousands of retailers. As a small business itself, Buckaroo offers tips for successful advertising:
· Know the customer. This will determine which products are selected. Buckaroo puts hand-picked deals and coupons in its 'What's Hot' e-newsletter, saving subscribers time and money.
· Capture customer info. Finding out who likes specific items gives the retailer an advantage for future deals and tracking consumer preferences.
· Enhance the relevancy of the product. A product or piece of information that resonates with a customer increases the chance of a purchase. Buckaroo's platform is locally-focused, giving familiar information to the user relevant to their immediate surroundings.
· Be creative with the creative. Many daily deal sites today add whit and whimsy when writing product descriptions. Professionalism and grammatical accuracy are two things Buckaroo takes into account when featuring product deals. Multiple merchants may sell the same item, but the design, copy and position of the ad will stand out.
Small businesses can post for free on Buckaroo's home page and email packages start as low as $100. See Buckaroo's pricing page for details.
