Thursday, May 12th, 2011 has launched its new pre-shopping website, which offers a collection of deals to help Indianapolis consumers save on everything from retail purchases to auto, dining and business services.

Best friends and business partners Arnold Miyesa and Jason Mugo came up with the idea of launching the Indianapolis deals website about a year ago. While reflecting on the state of the economy, they noted the consumer trend toward saving money on the things that they use or need on a daily basis, and the need for business owners to cost-effectively advertise their deals to customers.

With more people doing research on the Internet before making purchases,
Best Deals Indy aggregates the best shopping deals in the Indianapolis area,
making it easy for Indianapolis consumers to find the best deals available
before doing their shopping, saving them both time and dollars. The deals
are currently categorized by type of deal (entertainment, retail,
restaurant, business services, etc.) as well as the location of the deal
(Indianapolis downtown, Broad Ripple, North Indianapolis, Greenwood, etc.).
When a consumer visits the company’s deal page, they can simply visit the
business to receive the deal, or they can bring a copy of the deal or deal
code in order to redeem the deal.

“We’re a local business, not a national coupon website offering local
deals,” said Jason Mugo, managing partner for Best Deals Indy. “We’re doing
this to promote the city of Indianapolis, its businesses and also to serve
everyone who lives in Indy to help them save on their shopping purchases.”

During the initial launch phase, will allow business
owners to post their deals at no cost, for a limited time, which includes a
link back to the businesses’ websites. Businesses can visit the website to
post their deal, upload their graphics and more. Best Deals Indy currently
uses social media to promote the website, and plans to incorporate other
marketing methods to gain a following in the Indianapolis area.

In order to help business owners see the value of listing their deal on, the site also offers real-time website tracking to showbusinesses the increased traffic resulting from their listing. All business deal listings are linked with Google Maps to help consumers find thelocation of their deals. The company plans to offer premium, or enhanced listings for additional business exposure at a later date.

“We want as many people to know about, and for the site to
become top-of-mind when anyone thinks about shopping in Indianapolis.”

The Indianapolis deals website also features a tourism section with area
guides as well as links to local venues and upcoming events in the
Indianapolis area.
