Our vision for Dealio is rooted in enhancing and streamlining the process of finding deals in local communities. We hope to enable family-run, unique, and popular local businesses to thrive more than they do now in their respective location while using our geofenced platform. Dealio is an App and Website that taps into the needs of consumers that are looking to find the best prices for food and drinks in a geofenced area while simultaneously providing businesses the opportunity to increase their foot traffic by promoting better and more profitable deals. We provide an easy to use platform-both for the consumer and the business owner-that increases the reach of local deals; by focusing on a seamless experience for both parties using Dealio, we hope to find the right climate for increased sales for the business owner and better and more salient savings for the consumer.
Dealio’s singular feed creates a seamless experience for consumers to discover local re-occurring and real time deals that they would normally miss out on. Everyone that uses Dealio can specify their desired deal range between 1-25 miles, which will act as a radius for their desired deal selection. We hope that users will be able to find the best offerings at their closest, favorite, and newly found places with ease. We want Dealio to be beneficial for not only the typical "local" by providing weekly/real-time deals and push-notifications for their "favorited" places, but also for the tourist that will enjoy having access to the best places that the locals find "popular" when they visit a specific city. We hope that Dealio users will never miss out on any deals, no matter what city they are located in.
Additionally, Dealio provides an equal amount of value to businesses. Currently, businesses are spending outrageous amounts of time and money on advertising deals through print, word of mouth, social media, web, or television. Dealio offers a centralized platform by creating an inexpensive aggregation of all business deals in a local geofenced area. This means that every deal that a business chooses to post on Dealio will be viewed by people who can actually purchase their product locally - therefore gaining more foot traffic, acquiring new life-long customers, and increasing sales. Dealio provides this value to businesses by giving them a singular platform to post their deals that they are already having for FREE as well as create real time deals at any moment with a premium upgrade that will exponentially increase traction (see Features). Ultimately, Dealio enables businesses to advertise any deal directly to their target market.
Our inspiration for Dealio developed after experiencing difficulty when trying to find local deals wherever we went. Attempting to find discounts for a happy hour was nearly impossible even when searching through a business’s website. This led us to discover that many local and franchised businesses were beginning to create their own exclusive apps to advertise & showcase their deals. Therefore, we concluded that there is a clear demand from both users and businesses for a unified platform of all local deals.
The entire Dealio team shares a common goal of creating a unique platform that will help users become regularly updated about any deals going on in their respective local communities...throughout the week and in real-time. Our current focus is to fulfill the restaurant and bar scene, and our team is dedicated to accomplish this throughout the United States.
