Since its debut in January 2011, Dealmates has experienced steady growth which can be attributed to their knowledge and commitment to the local market. This growth has also been accelerated by a sizable investment by Intel Capital which made headlines several months ago. The benefits of this investment are already beginning to take form through key indicators such as the site’s ever increasing member list.

Having recently tripled their subscription base, Dealmates’ Chief Executive Officer, Erman Akinci expressed the importance of maintaining the quality of service offered to consumers. “While a large member list is the key to attracting new vendors, there is no point in having one unless you are able to keep up with their ever changing needs”.

“We are pleased with the success we have experienced thus far and have initiatives in the pipeline to ensure that this momentum continues. It is an exciting time to be part of an industry that still has tremendous potential for innovation and growth”.

    286,000 unique visitors that’s all?

  • I dont really trust the number, since lots of deal sites (including groupon malaysia) buy their traffic from PPC or those popup/popunder sites. I’ve saw tons of them. I would like to see which site’s coupon sales number is better! 

    • Numbers will be numbers I guess 🙂 And yes, coupon sales would be a good indication. And sales conversion.
