A new daily deal platform called Ringleadr plans to put the future of the daily deal business into the hands of the consumer. Ringleadr adds a unique twist to the local deal game by letting its users, or “Ringleadrs,” create the deals they want for businesses they care about. Unlike any other deal sites, consumers can create deals for anything they want buy or experience. That means they get deals that are relevant to them.
If a Ringleadr wants to save on sports equipment, he can make an offer to the sporting store. If the store approves, then he can share his deal with others.
Ringleadr was hatched when three internet entrepreneurs from New York were finally fed up with the lack of relevancy in the daily deals they were receiving. From 60% off Laser Hair Removal to 50% off Family Portraits, every deal that landed in their inbox seemed to build on their lust for something more; local deals that they actually wanted.
“It’s how daily deal sites should have always been – a place where like-minded consumers could band together to influence local businesses.” CEO and Founder Mike Davis pointed out, “I feel like this is the natural evolution of the daily deal industry where local deals intersect with social networking. Ringleadr makes users the true influencers, not the websites that publish pre-determined deals.”
Once a deal is created, shared and pre-ordered, the business can make a choice to approve, deny or modify the deal. Soon Ringleadr will be adding new features like leader boards, mobile apps and business tools that will let local businesses continue to market to users after deals are approved and redeemed. Ringleadr is available nationwide in all major cities and small towns. Another feature that puts a cool twist to daily deals is that credit cards are only required once each deal is approved.
