A new e-mail service and Web site designed to help resellers pick up the best deals from distributors has been launched by ARN.
The Deal of the Day service (www.dealoftheday.com.au) kicked off this week with a host of first-up deals on a large range of components and peripherals, as well as complete PCs and notebooks.
Deal of the Day's easy-to-use Web site is accompanied by a weekly e-mail newsletter, which allows resellers and dealers to quickly peruse what's on offer. A link to the relevant item on the Web site is also provided in the e-mail, for use when any of the items are of interest to users.
According to Glen Myles, ARN's national advertising manager and the developer of the concept, Deal of the Day will quickly become a valuable marketing tool for distributors and vendors requiring quick turnaround on certain stock items.
"Deal of the Day is a whole new concept in delivering immediate and tangible results for the channel," Myles said. "In doing so it is also offering resellers the opportunity to buy popular products, peripherals and components straight out of distributors' inventory at the best prices.
"The early response from buyers and sellers clearly shows that we are onto a winner."
Early supporters of Deal of the Day include Achieva Technology, Dovetail Distribution, Ingram Micro, Synnex Australia and Tech-Excel Distribution.
