The new kid in the deal buying site industry, SalesVote, is keeping things interesting by placing four deals against one another, to see which one ends up the most popular. SalesVote launched in May 2011 and has worked to turn deal buying into a game where consumers purchase one of four deals and compete to push their deal to the top with the most sales. The first ten buyers are Ambassadors who are rewarded for spreading the good word about their favorite deal with a cash reward if their deal wins. Thus far, SalesVote has made winning Ambassadors very happy by sending checks just a few days after the end of the sale.
This week the competitors range from chocolate and spices to personal training and Cajun food. It will be hard to pass up the deal with J. Chocolatier in Georgetown, $5 for three of the best truffles in DC and a cup of coffee to go with them. If you’re looking for savory over sweet (or in addition), SalesVote is also offering a deal with The Spice & Tea Exchange, also in Georgetown. Blends, rubs, sugars, and gourmet tea lining the walls make deciding what to buy even harder than choosing this deal.
If chocolate and spices are not what you are looking for, there are two other deals including a significantly discounted TRX Suspension Training package with LivingWell Fitness Center at Washington Hilton. Something a little different never hurt your workout routine and the band-intensive training has good reviews from trainers and trainees alike. Last, there is a classic deal that gives you incentive to get out of the house next weekend to check another DC restaurant off your list. The Cajun Experience in Dupont Circle has recently come into the spotlight with high profile diners including Senator David Vitter, Leon Harris and Natasha Berrett from ABC 7 and WUSA 9’s Andrea Roane and Angie Goff, just to name a few. If you haven’t tried crawfish or Cajun-style food before, there is no time like the present.
By putting the deals in competition with each other, SalesVote is bringing out the competitive nature in DC and rewarding those who enter their name into the ring. The SalesVote lasts until the end of the week—so for the next 7 days, DC will find out which deal is the most popular. The winners of the SalesVote, those people who bought the most popular deal, get an extra 10% discount and the Ambassadors of the winning SalesVote get a slice of the earnings as cash. There really is no downside.
SalesVote (salesvote.com), launched in May 2011 in Washington, DC., is a growing group buying site promoting featured deals via “ambassadors” or first-buyers who compete to have the most sales. Fostering loyalty to local businesses and offering deeply discounted deals; SalesVote plans to expand to other cities nationwide.
