Suffice to say, the internet is officially huge: 132+ million .com domains, more than 328+ million domains, and 14+ trillion web pages.
So, amidst this universe of data, it’s Friday night and you just want to try out a new restaurant to take your significant other. You will probably do a Google search and then, to be sure you found all of the potential results, you might also perform another search on Bing or Yahoo. These search engines do not give you the full range of reviews, so you might check out Urbanspoon and Yelp. If you are a bargain hunter, you will then probably head over to Livingsocial or Groupon for any pertinent deals.
Chances are, by now, you probably suffer from “internet fatigue”—simply exhaustion from using the internet. Why, after decades of technological improvements, does it still take so long to find what we are looking for?
If you are a small business owner…tell me if this doesn’t speak to some of your frustration marketing your business online!
You probably spend a lot of time and energy, away from actually running your business, on a variety of sites and services doing everything you can to get your business in front of your potential customers. You probably aren’t really sure which services and platforms are best to use, how to use them very well, and more importantly how to actually get them in front of the right people. It’s a daunting challenge for sure and with the number of services out there, many of which are trying to get your every dollar, it can be frustrating and exhausting, leading to that analysis-paralysis state of mind that leaves you checked out and wanting to throw your hands up in the air saying “The heck with this!”.
The hunt for deals and coupons typically involves multiple searches at popular sites like Living Social and Groupon, among others. With the recent addition of more than 100 deals and coupon providers, Bliips.com continues to simplify local business search by providing access to these and many other deal and coupon providers from a single search.
Bliips.com is not just a site for deals and coupons, but also the place to check out a business’s social media, reviews, and location on Google Maps. “Our goal has always been to simplify online search and adding deals and coupons makes our service even more compelling,” says Ken Jackson, CEO of Bliips.
The Internet is only as useful as each user makes it, but a new website developed by two Cedar Park brothers aims to simplify that search process.
After more than a year of development and testing, startup website Bliips.com officially went live May 31. Duo Ken and Justin Jackson worked to help make the project a reality, and they both agree their website helps clean up the Internet for those who need it most.
The “one-stop shop” pulls business information from social media outlets and coupon websites so users do not have to browse site to site. Users can also easily access directions and contact information automatically, and owners can modify their business listings with additional information.
Through aggregation software technology, consumers searching for businesses or professionals at http://www.bliips.com can now find social media, deals and coupons, ratings and reviews, and more, all in a single search. Bliips demonstrated its service on April 30, 2013 at the Techcrunch Disrupt NYC conference in New York City and prepares for its official public launch on May 31, 2013.
“For more than a year we have worked hard to develop the ideal consumer search experience, tailored to businesses and professionals,” says Ken Jackson, CEO of Bliips. “Now, for the first time, a consumer will find a more comprehensive search engine- presenting a range of information that once required several searches across several websites.”
Cedar Park, Texas, March 22, 2013 — Bliips Media, Inc. announced plans to move to the forefront of consumer search through the launch of their proprietary search engine API aggregation software technology at www.bliips.com. Bliips demonstrated their technology at the Launch Festival in San Francisco, California, earlier this month and will also present at the Techcrunch Disrupt conference in New York City, New York on April 30, 2013.
“We set out to reduce clutter on the internet by consolidating the best services and information that consumers rely upon in evaluating businesses and professionals,” said co-founder and CEO of Bliips Media, Inc., Ken Jackson. Among the information aggregated by Bliips are social media, deals and coupons, as well as ratings and reviews. “We showcase all of this information in a simple and visual user-experience.”
