This company is positioning itself to bring about much needed positive changes to a highly negative deal site industry.

'The People's Website'

"The site that's as good for your business as it is for your customers"

Launched this summer, Birmingham based is a digital platform that transcends the typical daily deals model, equipping small businesses with the online tools and features needed to maximise their profit and compete against larger, better financed competitors. The Only Uncle mission is to provide consumers with a friendly environment to find and engage with local businesses while supporting SMEs across Britain and revitalising local economies.

Only Uncle helps businesses showcase their services and products using a vast selection of tools, from creating an easy to use tailored profile, building in SEO, sharing promotions across social media platforms to gain more exposure, networking with other businesses, developing loyalty with customers plus many more features at a price they can afford. Being a small business in itself, Only Uncle understands the importance of giving sellers complete control on every promotion, instead of the deal site.

Not only is the platform a necessity for SMEs, it’s also a great place to shop and save because sellers pay no commission meaning that they pass the savings onto the customer. Also, buyers can express what businesses they like by making them favourites, posting feedback and sharing the information with friends. They can also get up to date offers directly from their favourite businesses, making sure they don’t miss any great deals.

“Why is it called the People’s website? Because we are giving people the power to choose and decide who they shop with. It’s about building local community based relationships between customers and businesses. Businesses have two options, they can list for free or upgrade to our Premium package giving them unlimited ability to promote themselves for a one off set up fee of £29.99 per year, with zero commission, something other deal sites don’t offer” said Vinny Hira, Founder of OU.

“We are consistently looking at ways of making our platform that much more effective and innovative. There is a vast amount of creativity waiting to be developed by the OU team. We are determined to step up to the podium and deliver more than any company in this industry” said Operations Director Harjit Hira. has no desire to become a deal site clone. This platform is about business development for SMEs and superb offers for consumers. We want to develop an online community that has a strong voice by helping its members grow and support one another. That’s what the People’s Website stands for – the people!” added Business Development Manager Paul DeCouto.
