SKOUT DEALS LAUNCHES FREE ADVERTISING PLATFORM TO LOCAL MERCHANTS

Skout Deals makes posting merchant deals free for small to mid-sized businesses in the Austin, Texas area.

Austin, TX – Skout Deals, a new, full-service mobile application and web-based platform designed to provide individuals with immediate access to all local product and service deals and discounts, this week officially rolled out their free advertising platform available to all small to mid-sized businesses.

Passionate about including deals from all over the nation, Skout Deals currently has over 200 national merchants at over 170,000 locations and 50,000 deals with thousands updated daily, now open to small merchants in every local community.

“The goal of Skout Deals is to bring all local consumers and merchants into contact with one another via publicized deals and discounts that often go unnoticed,” said Bryan Payne, Founder and CEO of Skout Deals. “Everything listed on our platform is at a 25% discount or more, and we’re very excited to announce the addition of small businesses in our service and product listings as well.”

Skout Deals recently launched their small business initiative in Austin, Texas, providing an interactive platform that enables all merchants to post deals for free. They have additionally launched a paid subscription plan from as low as $39.95 to $129.99 per month, per location, that provides merchants with the ability to offer more deals and types of deals, beyond the typical in-store promotions and coupons. These merchants can then collect analytics through the platform on all of their listed deals, as well as set up custom target deals for pinpointing sales from certain demographics.

It is completely free for any merchant to post their deals to the Skout Deals app. No contract, credit card information, or agreements are required.

“The positive response from the local merchants has been amazing; it has exceeded our expectations and definitely shows there is a real interest and need for this type of product,” said Payne.

Many merchants on the new Skout platform have experience new business within the first couple of days.
