- Purchasing search terms so that businesses appear in desired or targeted placement positions during a consumer product search.
- Applying advanced search engine optimization and listing techniques to localize small business reach and marketing spend.
"We have been waiting for the right time to partner with a company like Monster Offers, and we believe that this is definitely the opportunity we have been looking for.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
