Like its distinctively independent, hyperlocal approach to news coverage and commentary on the Sacramento area, The Sacramento Press delivers Deal Ticket, its version of the national trend in online deals, which is a weekly deal program that offers consumers 51-90% off on Sacramento’s top businesses every Tuesday through Friday.
Deal Ticket sales representatives are able to partner face to face with local businesses to produce effective offers for local consumers.
“Deal Ticket worked out really well for my business,” said Abraham Sanchez, owner of Article Consignment Boutique. “It was a great opportunity to have not only new people, it worked out for my existing clients to get some good deals and bring back recurring business.”
He added that it was very easy and well-organized and the deal process went exactly as it was explained to him.
“It was successful and profitable for me,” he said. “It allowed new people to come in and, of course, those people referred others. I would consider it a great success for me and my business.”
Deal Ticket has featured local greats such as Tuli Bistro, Article Consignment Boutique, Scrub Boys, Squeeze Inn and Asha Yoga. Deals have ranged from local restaurants, hair salons, yoga, photography, tanning, car washes, massages and much more.
The Deal Ticket team works hard to tailor every offer specifically for the local Sacramento market, even in the face of competitive national daily discount behemoths such as Groupon and Living Social. Deal Tickets local edge comes from their customer service – a real person is available to speak to businesses and customers that participate in the deal program.
“We’re trying to make Deal Ticket fun, affordable, easy to buy and, most of all, credible,” said Ben Ilfeld, co-founder of The Sacramento Press and Macer Media. “Our emphasis with The Sacramento Press and SLOAN has always been ‘hyperlocal’ for news, commentary and advertising. Deal Ticket is about taking branding to a ‘hyperlocal’ level for area businesses that participate.”
Deal Ticket is continually looking for ways to improve – The Sacramento Press recently relaunched its weekly deal program on a brand-new platform built from the ground up with all-new features.
Deal Ticket still provides consumers with a fantastic weekly deal program, but on a much-improved platform. With this new system, several changes have been made to benefit consumers and make the process of purchasing and redeeming Deal Tickets easier. They know that there are many daily deal options to choose from, but consumers can trust that every Deal Ticket is hand-selected.
Features on the new platform include:
– Manage and print purchased deal vouchers through Deal Ticket’s website.
– Access to personal accounts 24/7.
– Track purchased vouchers, both used and available to be redeemed.
– Sign up and log in with your Facebook account for more convenient access.
– Credit card information is securely saved to provide a smoother checkout process, and all credit/debit cards are accepted, making for easy, quick and secure checkouts.
– Share a $5 invitation bonus on featured deals (Each friend who signs up gets a $5 credit, and you get a $5 credit after your friend’s first purchase).
– And much more!
