EatClub aims to help restaurants to fill their empty tables in off-peak or slower periods by helping them communicate deals to diners.
By far the biggest challenge that Deal Tap is going to face will be driving downloads of the app from consumers, and then getting them to use it regularly.
We’ve seen a number of startups emerge in our ecosystem that focus on coupons, discount deals, rewards and vouchers – examples include Aston Club, BigDeal, Buzzingaa, Coupay, OzSale, Rewardle and Swoop. Each has its unique point-of-differentiation, but not all have maintained strong momentum. The latest to enter this highly competitive space is Melbourne-based startup Liven.
Launched in June, a new smartphone app is getting retail bees buzzing to get their hands on the new marketing tool – with over 12,000 download to date. Buzzingaa offers retailers the opportunity to boost traffic, sales, turnover and profit by targeting customers through GPS-linked app alerts that direct them to special deals and discounts the minute they are within close proximity to a particular store.
No more printing vouchers, paying online or making reservations, because new app bigdeal brings it all to your fingertips! This all-women Aussie startup is going against the grain of other ‘deal’ providers by allowing users to redeem offers instantly from their smartphone.
