Iloilo City, Philippines – May 5, 2011 — DealsTent, a group buying company in the Philippines that launched in Iloilo in March 2011, is poised to offer more exclusive local deals to Ilonggos at 50% to 90% off regular rates. It also serves as a cost-effective and valuable promotion avenue for Ilonggo merchants.
“We tailor our deals for our target consumers’ needs,” said Althea Tan, co-founder of DealsTent and a native of Iloilo City. “We know they’re trying to find ways to save in this economy without giving up their active lifestyles, so we try to make our deals compelling and affordable for the average buyer.”
DealsTent bases its business model on the concept of making online shopping easy and affordable by negotiating exclusive deals with local merchants and pass on significant savings to its mailing list subscribers, Facebook fans, Twitter followers, and blog readers, who otherwise would not have heard of the featured merchant’s products and servicve offerings.
“We want to pass on huge savings to our customers, and we also want to make them feel confident and well-cared for whenever they purchase a deal from us,” Tan noted. To simplify the process, DealsTent works only with reliable merchants and accepts a variety of payment options, including PayPal, debit and credit card purchases via PayPal, bank transfers and mobile payment via GCASH. “If escalated issues regarding our deals arise, I’m always more than happy to personally attend to them,” Tan added.
Although it offered its first deal in the Philippines just a little over two months ago, DealsTent already has already more than 12,000 fans on Facebook. Its popularity and rapid growth speaks to the interest of young professionals, moms, Internet-savvy Filipinos and those with active lifestyles who desire to have the best at decidedly reduced rates.
“We want to ensure we deliver personalized service to our consumers and let them know they can count on us when they need assistance in completing their orders. We make every effort to thoroughly address all customer concerns within 12 hours,” said Tan.
Operated by Webpro Ads, DealsTent is Iloilo’s first ever group buying service that offers local deals from restaurants and bars, salons and spas, hotels and resorts, events, and other local merchants in Iloilo.
