Amazon has long had its hand in almost everything. Now since GroupOn has introduced a way to offer jobs for sales employees around the world and Google Offers makes its official debut in this week, Amazon too will follow suit by introducing deals on a daily basis via AmazonLocal.
The service bares resemblance to their rival GroupOn’s daily e-mail service to subscribers in order for savings on local goods and other purchases by buying a voucher. Currently, AmazonLocal is available in Boise city in Idaho. One can only imagine the spree going on in that state as we speak.
The unique aspect of this deal is that unlike its competitors, Amazon will outsource the job to other companies instead of developing a private sales team to strike it’s deals. Smart, isn’t it?
Living Social, which Amazon has invested in, is presently bargaining and cracking deals for the latter.
Besides Amazon, Google and GroupOn, The New York Times and social networking giant Facebook.The city to be selected for the service is still in the running. Nonetheless, with its extremely vast database, the ability for Amazon to reach out to its potential customers is unquestionable.
Next up, something on national standards!
