London, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 November 2012
Pearson is launching http://www.HushHush.com having already had more than quarter of a million people sign up using the site’s placeholder signup page. Once signed up, the site has been offering users cash to use on the site as credit by referring friends.
The site will give users up to 75% off handpicked exclusive sales, showcasing popular brands and great designs for the home and wardrobe.
The success of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk led to the launch of more than a dozen international variants under Pearson’s company Markco Media, helping millions of people save hundreds of millions of pounds. Markco Media has built a database of more than 4.5 million discount-savvy members of public within the UK.
Using the discount platforms as a springboard, Markco Media is launching HushHush.com with a £1m budget, ensuring no expense is spared in terms of the products and team built to source them. The project has received no external funding.
The team, including buyers who bring a wealth of product-hunting experience, include professionals from the likes of Harrods, Net a Porter and the Arcadia Group.
Shoppers will find items from brands such as Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabbana and French Connection forming part of the launch range. From festive decorations to designer gifts, the team has pulled out all the stops to deliver discounted collections from brands not traditionally associated with sales.
Mark Pearson, founder of HushHush.com had the following to say,
“Saving consumers money has always been a huge passion of mine and now I’m in a position to launch a site that delivers designer home and wardrobe collection savings, I’m very excited.
“The team I’ve built and the money I’m putting into it has already started reaping rewards given the incredible number of signups we had, before so much as listed one product. To have so many people signed up and excited about the launch is very promising. We’re confident we’ll have the products to grow and keep consumers coming back.”
HushHush launched in November 2012, having amassed more than 260,000 pre-launch signups.
