NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -03/02/12)- Signpost, the leading alternative to local advertising for small businesses, today announced that it has partnered with NimbleCommerce, a leading local marketing and commerce platform. The partnership brings Signpost's white label hyper local ad content to NimbleCommerce's network of more than 100 local and national online publishers, helping both merchants and publishers capitalize on the rapidly growing local commerce market.
Through this partnership, merchants using the Signpost's platform will benefit from expanded exposure to local customers by having their deals syndicated across the NimbleCommerce network. In turn, these publishers will have access to high-quality deals to monetize their local content without having to employ a sales team to source ads.
"Our customers are looking to capitalize on the daily deals and group-buying trend, and they turn to us to help them quickly and efficiently scale those efforts," said Kevin Wray, SVP of Global Sales at NimbleCommerce. "With this partnership we're able to expand their access to valuable deal content from Signpost's expansive base of high-quality local businesses."
"Our number one goal is to help the merchants we work with get new business in the door, and through this partnership, we're able to open up new avenues of customer acquisition for our merchants," said Stuart Wall, Signpost founder and CEO. "NimbleCommerce's network of publishers provides the targeted exposure our small business customers need, and in turn, we're allowing them to drive revenue off of their hyper local content."
