We knew we were in safe hands when we met with Kidoo and discovered that the founders had previously been involved in the world of Daily Deal aggregation. Like us, they understand that not everything is for everyone and that makes keeping you up to date on deals by your favourite children and family brands all the more straight forward.
Kidoo cover everything from baby essentials, children’s and maternity fashion, healthcare, toys, to soft-play activities, unique experiences, family holidays and everything in between.
We know they’re going to fit right in and look forward to working closely with them to really improve our family deals offerings.
With all the fantastic new Daily Deal and Group Buying businesses starting up, it was only a matter of time before someone I knew set something up. So when I heard about Savvy Mummys and saw the name of the founder I was straight on the phone. Savvy Mummys is a great concept – it takes the existing group buying model, but targets a very specific niche – as the name would suggest – expectant, new and more experienced mums can expect to find a fantastic array of discounted offers that really do target those things that mums need, want and deserve. Savvy Mummys was founded by Ali Harriss and a few other University friends. I spoke to Ali and got the following response:
” We’re part of a big group of Uni friends living in Clapham (AKA Nappy Valley), and we’re at that age where one by one we’re all walking up the aisle, having babies and buying prams. Being the entrepreneurial group that we are, we wanted to set something up together that would offer value to us, our families and our friends.”
Well, I can certainly say that they’ve created a gem, it’s targeted, relevant and genuinely useful, and the response they’ve had from the local community has been overwhelming. They’ve insisted that they aren’t rushing to branch out but there are plans in the pipeline. They want to make sure they’ve developed a great product that really does serve the community before delivering the concept to a wider audience and I for one look forward to helping them expand when the time comes.
We recently added Here For A Day to our list of featured partners. They’re a great addition to the Buyometric “family” and bring a nice selection of deals to the table that center around “Home & Family”.
As a family run business themselves, Mark and Donna – the co-founders of Here For A Day – have a real understanding of what a family is looking for and have really worked hard with us over the past couple of weeks to get things setup and ready for the launch.
Hopefully there won’t be too many more midnight emails bouncing back and fourth.
