Snagshout, a new social deals website, launches today to provide a unique shopping experience to consumers by offering deep discounts on a wide range of retail products for purchase, use and review. The site connects shoppers looking for deals with merchants looking to gain traction with new items on Amazon.
“Our mission is to create a close connection between shoppers and businesses. We want to personalize online shopping and give consumers the opportunity to try something new at a low cost while also giving businesses the chance to promote their product directly to new customers.”-ays Paul Johnson, CEO and founder of Snagshout.
According to a Nielsen study, 92% of consumers trust peer reviews and word of mouth over any other type of advertising. Snagshout leverages this belief by offering deeply discounted products in exchange for an honest review, creating a community of spokespeople around the products. Shoppers are able to purchase one product at a time and must leave an honest review within two weeks of purchase before they can “snag” another deal.
Most products are offered at a 30-90% discount with some available at no cost to shoppers. To purchase an item listed on Snagshout, consumers are given a discount code to purchase the product directly from the brand’s Amazon listing. In addition to getting a great deal, Snagshout users who are also Amazon Prime members can get many products shipped for free.
Snagshout’s site is organized into 9 categories to help make discovering deals even easier. Categories with discounted products for purchase and review include:
- Beauty and Health
- Clothing, Shoes and Jewelry
- Electronics and Computers
- Home, Garden and Tools
- Kids and Baby
- Sports and Outdoors
Products purchased on the site generate conversions and reviews for online merchants. Increased sales and quality reviews help get products ranked higher in search results on Amazon. The site provides marketing and search engine optimization tools for online merchants. Snagshout has a built-in automated review dashboard to help merchants view their products’ conversions and reviews.
