Fundraising, as well as connecting with the right investors, is important to all businesses, especially when the time is right for growth. As fast as we have grown over the past three years, aplez.com is planning to expand our horizons even further in the next few months. Aplez.com has big plans for the future, so the time is right to raise capital for continuing to build a solid and long-lasting foundation.
Here's some information to help you make up your mind easier.
Aplez.com is a complete, active deals platform, that is centered around New York City businesses, local residents, tourists and business travelers.
We like to think of ourselves as not just another deals website but as a whole new way to help businesses promote their deals and reach new customers. At the same time consumers always have quick and easy access to the best local savings.
Here at aplez.com we strongly believe that saving every day is one of the most important and useful habits that a person can develop. Saving in fact, is one of the keys to having disposable income. And as we all know, consumers with disposable income tend to shop more often and spend more money when they do shop. Aplez.com appeals to our human nature. We all love to save money when we're going out for a night on the town, grabbing a smoothie at a local juice bar, or picking up some wine for the weekend.
Living and working in the trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood that we call home, we noticed hundreds of ways to save daily. In fact, local, money-saving offers are everywhere. In newspapers, flyer handouts, mailers, online coupons, as well as on menu boards in front of bars, cafés, restaurants, boutiques, nail salons and the door of your neighborhood gym.
But it can all be just a little confusing and overwhelming. We are busy people and really, who has the time to look all over the place for the latest deals or search every business website to see their current promotions.
Wouldn't it be nice if there was one, user-friendly place where you could find all the latest deals and offers in the neighborhood? Well now there is. Welcome to Aplez.com!
Aplez.com is a complete online savings guide, where you can quickly and easily keep up with the latest savings all around you. An acronym for "always pay less ez", Aplez.com also features popular blogs where you can read about trendy hotspots, discover new chefs and their restaurants, as well as read interviews with local Entrepreneurs.
Another unique feature available only at Aplez.com, is what we call SMR. SMR is short for Social Media Ratings. With a quick glance, users can see the average social media star ratings available on Facebook, Yelp, Trip Advisor, Zagat, etc. for any selected business. This is the most reliable online rating feature available today, and helps everyone get a true sense of what the business is about.
Cutting coupons out of newspapers and wasting time while you're trying to find a flyer you were handed last week is so yesterday. Now, there's a easier and much faster way to find all the latest deals in your neighborhood. Aplez.com is on the cutting edge of the next generation in small business marketing/promotions and consumer savings, creating a win-win for all!
