Try-It-Local Joins Local Coupon Craze in Grand Haven

There's a new player in the hyper-local social media coupon craze. If you are already familiar with Daily Deals or Groupon, take a look at another local deal vendor, with a slight twist.

Try-It-Local has just been launched by the Chamber of Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Ferrysburg (interesting that the tryitlocal.com site read my IP address and took me directly to the Grand Haven portion of the site). The chamber involvement is the added feature in this case, and it works like this:

  • The Chamber features an offer from a member business that has a discount of 40% off or more for a product or service.
  • The offer is delivered to Try It Local subscribers via email, the Chamber's Facebook page, Twitter page and TryItLocal.com
  • The featured member business collects 70% of each day's total sales and is charged no fees for the promotion.  
The video tutorial does a nice job of explaining the details. Looks like a win-win for the chamber, member businesses, and customers.
