We think Irish online shoppers are really looking for the whole package. That is why we want to help them save with our discount codes, free to enter competitions and freebies.
Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
On the 20th of August, 2012 PromotionalCodes.ie acquired Ireland's leading competitions website Competitions.ie with the aim of helping users from both save even more money. It all started when, Neil Anderson the founder and Managing Director of the site started running competitions on PromotionalCodes.ie.
“It was only when we saw how popular these competitions were proving to be with our users, that we realised we needed a dedicated competitions portal to help compliment the site”
Instead of starting our own site from scratch, we decided it would be much better to tap into the already excellent potential of Competitions.ie. So now when customers visit our site looking for competitions, we can direct them to our dedicated competitions site. On the flip side, a lot of the people who were signing up with Competitions.ie, were really interested to find out they could save money with voucher codes. A win win situation for everyone.
To coincide with the acquisition, PromotionalCodes.ie has been hard at work making the website more user friendly. Whilst they found that the site functioned perfectly well two or three years ago, users nowadays are really looking for a much more rounded shopping experience. The site now offers the voucher codes, (the unique string of numbers and/or digits that get added at the checkout) in a much larger and more readable format, as well as giving people the option to “like” and share the codes much more easily. In fact, integrating the social element to the site, has already brought in over 2500 readers from the social sharing site Stumbleupon.com.
These improvements to the site have made significant changes to the length of time that people stay on the website, and the number of pages that people visit. A brief glance at the analytics, shows page view per visit up 9.04% and the bounce rate dropping by 1.26%.
PromotionalCodes.ie has also been hard at work finding exclusive voucher codes for Irish websites. Some of the more recent deals include vouchers for pixmania.ie, flowers.ie, interflora.ie, M and M Direct Ireland to name just a few. In addition to this PromotionalCodes.ie are also featuring fantastic discounts for Hotels.com Ireland.
In the next few weeks we will also be adding freebies.ie to our portfolio. “We feel this is the perfect fit in terms of what our visitors want” quoted Mr Anderson. “I think Irish online shoppers are really looking for the whole package. That is why we want to help them save with our discount codes, free to enter competitions and freebies.”
The savvy online Irish consumer will now be able to save 3 times as well as before. Voucher Codes, Competitions and Freebies could well end up being the perfect frugal recipe.
