You may have noticed those red ‘Skout’ boxes popping up at the top of articles you are enjoying on our website, or will start to now. We recently partnered with Snap Skout, a media technology startup that automatically surfaces highly-relevant offers and deals to readers through its recommended offers engine. In layman’s terms – if you’re reading an article about a great new Seattle restaurant Snap Skout will pop up with dining deals collected from multiple discount companies – all in one place!
With Snap Skout’s recommended offers engine installed across Seattle magazine, online readers (you!) can conveniently access the best and most relevant local offers and deals. Snap Skout ensures high-quality offers by only partnering with the best deal networks-and advertisers such as Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon Local and Gilt.
Snap Skout’s content recommendation engine was installed on Seattle Magazine in mid-February and the key performance metrics from the 90 day pilot will be reviewed in mid-May. Throughout the 90-day period, readers can access the best local deals via the “Skout” button across the SeattleMag.com. Enjoy the great perks of being a Seattle magazine fan, and let us know your thoughts and comments below.
