HOW DOES SUDDENVALUES.COM WORK?
Merchants create SuddenValues.com offers via any Internet connection, using a friendly point-and-click graphical user interface. The entire process from start to finish takes less than five minutes and offers are posted in real-time or upon a date chosen by the merchant. End dates, created in the offer setup process, automatically pull an offer on its expiration date. The offer” View” feature provides exact data on the number of times an offer is viewed and/or printed.
The service includes an enhanced business listing, with keyword and category options to help visitors find the merchant via the website’s search and directory lookup functions. Information from the listing is further used to power the Business Spotlight, Deals Of The Day and Feature Merchant components. These website components act to expand merchant brand awareness and provide visitors greater information on the merchant and its offerings.
Visitors are drawn to the website via a local marketing campaign run by the SuddenValues.com team. The campaign uses both traditional and Internet promotional techniques, with a strong grass roots approach. This includes an aggressive effort to signup local businesses and individuals for a weekly email update of current offers. Here in Northeast Metro Minnesota thousands of individuals subscribe to the weekly email update. Visitors redeem the desired offers by selecting, printing and presenting the offer at the participating merchant’s location.
