Buckaroo Localizes News Releases in Partnership with PR Newswire
Local News Site Furthers Acquisition of Local Content
(San Jose, Calif., – January 15, 2013) – Buckaroo (www.buckaroo.com), the largest hub of local news and events, is announcing a partnership with PRNewswire, global leader of innovative marketing and communications solutions. The decision follows a similar partnership made several months prior with a popular online news group in an effort to foster a relevant and timely atmosphere for Buckaroo’s platform.
The integration of press releases will not only benefit the business-oriented users, but will also set Buckaroo apart as a multi-topical hub of local news.
Known for its online daily deals, Buckaroo is progressing into a “newspaper-like” presence. Designed with a local aspect in mind, Buckaroo is building a method of distributing information that is unique compared to some of the bigger players in the daily deal industry. The site uses geo-location and filtering features as a way to customize the user’s homepage.
Co-Founder and Chairman Alan Fisher describes the Buckaroo experience as “informative and communal”. “It’s exciting to see the progress of Buckaroo as a source of local news and the influx of a new audience. We’re very proud to have PR Newswire on our site and users will benefit as a result.”
Buckaroo continues to cater to a substantial merchant base. Businesses can post advertisements for free or purchase affordable, locally-targeted email packages. Likewise, the average user can also create free posts that announce anything from a garage sale to local gossip.
46 million people are currently subscribed to Buckaroo’s e-newsletter in the United States and Canada.
Buckaroo is the online hub for local shopping, news and events. Buckaroo’s parent company, Iron Speed, Inc. (www.ironspeed.com), is well-funded with a capital base of over $20M from several strategic investors and executives from AMD, Excelan, Onsale, and Oracle.
