The Office Ninja Blog has a new 'friend'. I say friend because this new partner I can consider as one that resonates the same advocacy that this blog has. It is providing opportunities for 'YOUNG PROFESSIONALS' to enjoy, have fun and offer ways for them to spend their hard-earned money THE RIGHT WAY (or at least the most 'sulit' / economical / efficient way possible).
I had always envied my friends from Manila for having the privilege to bask-in on the seemingly endless 'deals' available online of discounted food, gadgets, events, massages, flights, etc. offered by the many deal sites on the web. Yes, to those not yet in the know, this is the latest yuppie craze there is on that side of the country. That's why when I saw that there is this group from Pampanga with the same 'portfolio', I immediately added them on my social network list and it did not take long before I received a message from them asking if I can feature them. I immediately confirmed as I thought readers like you would be very much interested in what they may be offering. So after exchanges of messages and seeing their website as well as their business proposals, here goes my feature of them! I am talking about 'BIG DEALS'
(Note: The details of the succeeding content were gathered from their business proposal portfolio, which are thereby part of their licensed intellectual property).
Big Deals is actually a type of online marketing & promotions strategy with a two-pronged target. For business owners, it is an opportunity to get their brands, services or products across various populations or groups. On the other hand, the consumers (the 2nd target) are also expected to benefit as discounts and information sharing of business's products and services are advertised and made known to them straight via their social media accounts, emails or bookmarked blog sites. Win-win scenario, right? The term commonly used on these transactions is what you call 'promo deals'. These strategies provide the business owners the opportunity to create bigger waves of marketing and promotions of their services, increasing the chances of income. We consumers, on the other side, may expect the chance to avail things at discounted prices that we would otherwise not readily take in considering their original price tags.
THE TEAM BEHIND
The 'Big Deals' project is the brain-child of Greecos Software Solutions, Inc. a registered company in Angeles City Pampanga. The team is comprised of young group of entrepreneurs from various fields (engineers, software developers & marketing professionals --- wonder if they need a part-time psych grad??)

An email exchange with their HR and Sales & Marketing Manager outlined the following past and present partners they have and with this initial line-up, they sure are going a long way in the future: Century Hotel (Balibago Angeles City), Wishing Well (Diamond Balibago, Angeles City), Prism Hotel (Friendship, Balibago Angeles City), Velvet Spa, ShangHai Restaurant and Do-It Printing Service (all located in Angeles City Pampanga.). They also have a few clients from Manila, Top Mama Enterprises. RBV Cosmetic Surgery, Studio 1, Onyx Photobooth, Reyes Haircutters, CGM Balloons and Party Needs, Happy Shirts and a lot more.
