We recently acquired the London-based online deals website, Hungry Local….
Hungry Local was born out of Hungry Media in January 2011. The service was launched and piloted in the Clapham and Balham areas, to provide local businesses with a sustainable marketing service, offering deals on a local level. By July 2011, the site was running deals across 15 areas of London.
Following the sale, Hungry Local will be run as a standalone service under the new name, Hungry Deals, where the users will be migrated over to the main Buyometric offering. The typical number of new deals available to Hungry Deals users will increase from 5 to over 200 per day.
The news follows hot-on-the- heels of our partnership with Kate Garraway’s Goodypass, underlining our growth strategy through acquisition and partnerships. We are pleased to be able to offer Hungry Local users a wider range of local deals. We have experienced first-hand how personalisation revives consumer interest in local offers and keeps them engaged in the longer term. We’re confident Hungry Local users will respond positively to the change.
