San Jose, California (PRESS RELEASE – August 17, 2011) – Buckaroo announced recently the release of Buckaroo social media promotions. In addition to custom email marketing campaigns, merchants can now run promotions through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
As an alternative to daily deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial, Buckaroo lets users run their own promotions, giving them full control over promotional terms, transactions and list management. A variety of popular promotion types are designed to drive new customers to the business.
“Buckaroo is designed with the small business user in mind, a user who can devote only a few minutes per week to promoting their business.” – Alan Fisher, Chairman, Buckaroo (Iron Speed, Inc.)
The addition of social media capability will offer another avenue of growth for Buckaroo users by extending their reach to new potential customers.
“Facebook and Twitter have opened doors for small, local, and emerging businesses to connect with consumers in a way not possible before. With the addition of our social media feature, Buckaroo aims to help businesses standout in an increasingly noisy marketplace.” – Alan Fisher, Chairman, Buckaroo (Iron Speed, Inc.)
Buckaroo is free during the beta period and is currently available.
Buckaroo’s parent company, Iron Speed, Inc., founded in 1999, is well funded with a capital base of over $20M and strategic investors that include Arrow Electronics and Avnet, as well as executives from AMD, Excelan, Onsale, and Oracle. The company is based in San Jose, CA.
