Online business directory, scoot.co.uk, has launched a new page on its website that enables consumers to browse its rapidly expanding database of special offers and discount vouchers at local businesses in the UK.
Companies who advertise on Scoot can add special offers, coupons or discount vouchers to their listings to attract more consumers to their business. This new browser allows consumers to see all special offers on the site or to segment them by clicking on a geographical area of the UK map.
Each special offer has a link back to the advertiser’s information page on Scoot where consumers can see more detail including addresses, telephone numbers, descriptions, websites, maps, directions, photos, coupons and even videos. They can also print the coupon for presentation in store.
To keep informed of the latest offers in their area, consumers can sign up for Scoot’s regular special offers email newsletter or follow ScootSpoffers on Twitter. Local special offers are also featured on Scoot’s recently launched iPhone application which uses the phone’s GPS capability to locate the user, then find the nearest business such as cafe, bank, restaurant, petrol station and more.
Sue Barnes, managing director of Scoot, commented: “Money-saving vouchers and special offers are very popular with consumers and we believe this is a great way to attract users to Scoot. It also ensures that our advertisers – who are mainly small and medium-sized local businesses - gain increased exposure and generate additional leads.”
“If consumers are looking for a special offer for a particular business category”, continued Barnes, “they can search on scoot.co.uk for that type of business in a specified location, then use our filter option to view only those with special offers.”
