SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - A Sioux Falls developer is hoping he will create new relationships between businesses and their customers.
'Cheapest Best' is launching at the end of this month. It’s an app for tech savvy consumers looking for deals.
‘Cheapest Best is unique because business owners can post discounts at no cost, very simple and very easy to do on our website," Cheapest Best CEO, Patrick Masur said.
And CEO Patrick Masur tells me he has hundreds of businesses signed up for the launch.
"I’m very humble to say that we have a lot of businesses that are interested in getting on board when we release our dashboard here in the next week for business owners to post discounts," Masur said.
He said he wanted to create an app to help businesses and consumers find one another. He believes the potential of online shopping hasn't been reached yet.
“I thought of Cheapest Best because I want to make a difference in this world no longer businesses have to pay for advertising when they can get it for free on Cheapest Best, Masur said.
KSFY News spoke with two business owners that will be using the Cheapest Best app to advertise their businesses and deals on their services.
"It kind of takes the advertising budget out of the actual dollars involved with marketing. It’s direct, there's tons of businesses already ready to go and signed up for it," 605 Real Estate Broker, Brad Stearns said.
"It really affords us the opportunity to reach thousands of consumers monthly at zero cost," Car Swap Store Manager, Doug Inlay said.
Both say this is better than carrying around a coupon book since most people always have their phones with them...putting the power of shopping in the palm of your hands.
"This gives all generations the opportunity to take advantage of discounts. Everyone’s embracing technology today and you have to be on social media to grow and expand your business," Inlay said.
Masur is only 23-years-old and he's making his dreams come true.
“I never went to college, but I got the motivation and passion that anything I set my mind to I do it big or I don’t do it at all,” Masur said.
