It’s a website called http://www.isleofdeals.com/
It is a great new online service for the Isle of Man that harnesses the power of group-buying and enables customers to get unbeatable deals of at least 50%, or more at local businesses. One fantastic deal is featured on the website at a time which showcases a restaurant, outdoor activity, spa, salon, an event or many other things. The deal is featured on the website for a few days and consumers have the chance to buy a voucher for the deal to use within a set period (usually 3 months). Only if a minimum number of people purchase the deal does it goes ahead.
Despite the current economic climate, IsleofDeals provides a win-win situation to consumers and businesses alike. Manx consumers will benefit from the best deals the Island has to offer, and participating businesses will see a huge increase in sales due to the exposure, marketing and promotional depth IsleofDeals provides.
I have been extremely lucky in my career so far and during travelling to competitions around the World, I've noticed many successful business models that for whatever reason never make it to the Isle of Man. I have set up IsleofDeals to offer great benefits to Manx businesses and consumers alike. The website will help people find some of the hidden gems and great activities the Island has to offer that they might not otherwise think of trying. While visiting businesses to get deals over the past 2 weeks I have found loads of great businesses that I didn’t even know were there!
Initially, deals will run for approximately 7 days but I aim to run one deal every day as it picks up momentum. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Duke karting who were the first business I approached with the idea and who have been really supportive ever since, I am featuring their business as our first deal which is online now. Half price for 30 minutes Karting.
If you live on or regularly visit the Isle of Man sign up now at http://www.isleofdeals.com/ to make sure you don't miss out. There is honestly going to be some awesome deals on there!
