You know that bidorbuy acquired UbuntuDeal several months ago. According to the UbuntuDeal latest press release, the newest member of our family is doing very well in the competitive environment of online group buying.
Since its launch in November 2010, UbuntuDeal has expanded into all major cities of South Africa. Their sellers are happy; over 98% of them return to offer more discounted deals. Their buyers are happy too; almost each and every user registered on the site has bought into at least one group buying offer.
Here is an excerpt from the UbuntuDeal press release:
We’ve grown at a strong pace, and recent research into our client base has shown almost all of our business clients returning, and on average almost all of our customers buying something.” says Ondine Mond, Senior Sales Consultant at UbuntuDeal head office.
Companies offer deals on various products and services such as restaurants, cafés, beauty salons, holiday accommodations, adventure activities, etc and are always on the lookout for the best offering for their customers. In return, advertising on UbuntuDeal gives businesses access to new high value consumers in a very short space of time.
Managing Director Jess Green explains: “We differentiate our service from other websites in our industry by working more closely with our business clients, and allowing them to choose a capacity that they are able to cope with. This ensures a better quality of service for both the vendor and the consumer, which is reflected in our database and site traffic.
Cape Town’s San Marco restaurant is an example of how businesses benefit. The campaign run on UbuntuDeal brought in over 1,800 new customers to San Marco. Thanks to the way the campaign was managed, San Marco was able to receive feedback from the buyers. An overwhelming majority of them thoroughly enjoyed the experience and are now regular customers.
