FAQ's

For Vendors

How soon can I expect to see results?

We’re delighted to say that many of our advertisers see results on the very same day that their listing goes up- that’s how fast our app is!

Are there any other companies doing what you’re doing?

We’re proud to say that the options and services that we provide are unique, and no one else offers the combination of service like ours.

Do you offer a guarantee when using your service?

Yes- if you don’t see positive results when using our service, we’ll happily refund your money.

What makes mobile advertising the right choice for me?

Mobile advertising is a far more cost-effective method of advertising, and reaches out directly to people who are genuinely likely to buy from you.

We can even provide you with statistics on your mobile advertising, to show you the exact results you are achieving. We instantly publish your advertising to the thousands of people in your area that are looking to buy right now- and who will soon walk through your door to take advantage of your latest promotion.

Our subscribers are also able to share your business directly to their social media accounts, meaning that they do some of the advertising work for you. Their friends and family are then much more likely to visit you based on this personal recommendation than through traditional advertising.

Is Pocket Deals anything like Groupon?

Not at all! While services like Groupon and other daily deal sites have become increasingly popular, business often report that they have had a disappointing experience with them. Instead of asking you to make a huge discount on your goods or services, and then taking a large commission on each deal, we allow you to control everything, and don’t take any commission based on sales.

We ensure that you get the traffic you need, and only show your deals to people in your area who are genuinely likely to buy from you. That way, you get the best value for money from our service, and your customers get special deals that you have created- everyone is happy!

What demographic does Pocket Deals reach out to?

I run an e-commerce site. Can I advertise through Pocket Deals?
