Although many marketers think (myself included) that the novelty of deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial is wearing a bit thin (seriously, how glamorous will coupon-clipping ever be, even if you do it with friends...?), Keepsum.com has a new approach to the whole social commerce idea.
At the same time, the viral marketing buzz of daily deals remains a great way to generate exposure for new businesses and tools, and Keepsum offers deals strictly for the real estate industry. The tools they offer seem quite relevant to my needs and their mandate is fairly simple:
KeepSum is a group-buying service for business owners in the real estate industry. We offer up to 60% savings on the products and services you already use (and those you've been saving up for) to run your small business. We've got deals for almost every part of your business, including:
- Accounting Tools
- Training and Education
- Printing and Marketing Services
- Social Media Tools
- Tech Tools
- Website Development
- And anything else you think you may need
We're small business owners too and we know there are only two ways to increase your profits:
1- Increase sales and/or
2- Reduce expenses.
I look forward to seeing if this industry specific deals site develops, and the whole deal sites remain a viable business model in the long run.
