Promo.com Offers Millions of Promotional Deals and Discounts to Online & Offline Shoppers
Reading, Pennsylvania September 14, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Wyomissing, PA – The staff at Promo.com has been working overtime to pack their virtual shelves with enticing promo deals and discounts that shoppers want now and for the upcoming holiday gift season. Even the site's shopping cart logo appears packed to overflowing.
"It may seem early to be talking about the holidays," says Rick Drake, President and co-founder of Promo.com, "but it's certainly not too soon to be preparing; especially when you're gearing up to offer promo deals and discounts on more than 15 million products."
Wait a minute. Did he say fifteen million products? "Yes, actually we're planning for a lot more than that," Drake says with a smile. "We're targeting 17.5 million, but we're confident that we'll reach at least 15 million in time for the holiday rush."
Today the site is pushing promos on more than three thousand Halloween costumes and products, with savings up to 70% and more on selected items. But that's just the tip of the virtual iceberg. In fact, the site currently has more than ten million items, with another five to seven and half million needed to reach Drake's lofty goal of 15 to 17 1/2 million products by November 1st.
"As of today, we have just over ten million individual items available on Promo.com," says Drake. "Some sites offer promo coupons , while others offer deals or discounts. We're delivering all of that in one place."
It sounds like a logistical nightmare of staffing, inventory and shipping. But aside from the sounds of fingers on keyboards, the Promo.com offices are remarkably quiet. This is, after all, a virtual business.
"Our biggest strengths are the relationships we've established with our stores," says Drake, whose company currently represents hundreds of key retailers, both online and offline, across North America and beyond. "It's their inventory, their warehouses, their shelves and their people. Our job is just to deliver to our clients the very best promo deals on the planet."
For nearly a year, Promo.com has been one of the best kept secrets in the online promo, coupon and discount space. They have been quietly and deliberately flying below the radar, getting the necessary technology and relationships in place. Now they're ready to start delivering for their clients.
"Today, we're just a gnat on the windshield of the big players like Groupon and RetailMeNot," says Drake, "but people in this economy are still crying out for promo deals. We love our clients and Promo.com is now here 24/7 to deliver even better for them."
