Recently, Amazon.com launched its own daily deal website called AmazonLocal. Businesses looking to reach local, active customers should consider advertising with Amazon. Running a promotion with AmazonLocal is a great way to attract new customers, and get existing customers to return by offering discounted products and services. It may also help increase name recognition and general awareness of your business.
These promotions are listed on the AmazonLocal website for 72 hours, are featured in e-mail blasts to thousands of people in your area, and on Kindle devices, a feature unique to Amazon. AmazonLocal currently operates in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and Westchester County. Deals are mailed out to anyone who has made a purchase from Amazon within the past six months, ensuring that only active customers who are interested in making purchases see your deal. In Suffolk County, these deals are sent out to over 300,000 people!
It doesn’t cost anything upfront to participate in an AmazonLocal deal, and businesses will be paid their share within 14 business days of the deal’s end. Additionally you will have access to 24-hour customer service in case any problem should arise.
