LivingSocial are one the original group buying companies. Hailing from the USA, they first launched in Australia in 2010. Their group buying model is simple. They offer a no cost marketing opportunity for local businesses who are in looking to expand their client base. The businesses work with LivingSocial to put together a great deal on their service, which LivingSocial then markets to their audience of millions of Australians.
It’s a model where everyone wins. Customers get great deals across new and exciting local businesses! Businesses get an influx of new customers, which they are able to convert to loyal users by providing an exceptional service or product. LivingSocial takes a small commission from each sale which helps them grow their audience and improve their product.
LivingSocial has grown very quickly, with users loving the wide range of deals on offer including local restaurants, activities, beauty salons and hundreds of other businesses. The business expanded further when they acquired local group buying start up JumpOnIt in 2010.
Since launch LivingSocial has expanded the types of deals that they offer. Alongside local deals they now also offer travel deals (escapes), deals on physical products (shop) and a wide range of gifts specially selected for upcoming events like Easter, Christmas or Mother’s day.
All The Deals has partnered with LivingSocial since the very beginning, providing additional exposure of their deals to our audience of deal hunters. Both the Australian and US teams are true professionals and they have been great to work with in every way. We look forward to showcasing their deals for many years to come.
