Superfly Ready for Take Off

Forkfly, a merchant marketing and promotional social platform, launches new daily deal service, Superfly, in Portland market

Portland, Ore., May 10, 2011 – Forkfly announces their new service, Superfly, has launched. Superfly offers exclusive daily deals, bringing additional value to Forkfly members and merchants alike.

Forkfly has been providing its members with ongoing merchant deals via social media since 2009. According to Paul Wagner, Forkfly’s CEO/Founder, “The ongoing Forkfly deals will continue – we are just adding Superfly deals exclusively to participating Forkfly merchants, which will help them build loyalty and engagement.”

Forkfly offers participating merchants the benefits of bringing in new customers while building loyalty with their existing customer base through rewards. Due to the unique nature of these deals, participating Superfly merchants see an increase in new, loyal customers almost immediately.

“The Superfly deals essentially provide local merchants with a form of risk-free advertising,” says Stephanie Hooper, Chief Marketing Officer at Forkfly.  “Portland retailers will benefit from the ‘buzz factor’ associated with exclusive, limited-time deals.” Merchants can set a maximum number of Superfly customer redemptions that can be sold within the 24-hour deal offer. Superfly merchants receive a payout check within three business days of the promotion date.

In addition to visibility through Forkfly’s expansive member network, Superfly deals will be promoted via targeted online advertising on Google, Facebook and other popular websites. A percentage of revenue from every Superfly deal will go to local non-profit organizations.

Day spa known for their holistic and organic approach to health and wellness now offers unique program with in-house Health Coaches

Portland, Ore., May 20, 2011 – The Dragontree Day Spa announces Holistic Health Coaching services, aimed at providing structured programs to create lasting change.

With chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes taking a choking hold on American society, the new concept of the health coach is about proactive lifestyle changes as opposed to reactive. The Dragontree Spa, long known in the community as a place of holistic health, is embracing this idea by offering health coaching as a treatment to clients.

“Through education and encouragement, participants can take a proactive role in getting and staying healthy,” explains Dragontree owner Briana Borten.

Participants meet every other week for one hour and can choose between a three or six month program, with an option to extend indefinitely. The sessions include discussions of goals, progress, recommendations, and resources such as books, recipes and cooking classes. An optional grocery store tour is available, as well as free invitations to all events, lectures and workshops offered at The Dragontree.

“The three-month option is for those who already have some knowledge of healthy eating and lifestyle but need extra support to move past blocks,” says Health Coach Heather Wade. “As a wellness authority and supportive mentor, I want to motivate individuals to cultivate positive health choices.”

“The six-month option is targeted for those who know that change is needed but are overwhelmed and unsure of where or how to begin,” explains Health Coach Kelly Hirstein. “It takes time to integrate new habits and we can work at a pace that helps make those changes sustainable.”

This program is about more than just diet; it is aimed at creating a better quality of life. The program is designed to assess the areas of a participant’s life that are out of balance and work with them to make progress to nourish those needs.

The Dragontree Health Coaches fully support the recommendations given by doctors and any medical professionals. Their main goal is to provide participants with the practical knowledge and resources to participate in creating and maintaining a foundation of high quality health throughout life.
