WhoseView social network gets UK launch
Customer review site branches out
Tech4Biz | 09 Jul 2010 :
WhoseView.ie, the social review based website that allows users to review locations in Dublin, Cork and Galway has expanded to cover six cities in the UK. WhoseView.co.uk is now available in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
With 100,000 unique visitors a month now visiting WhoseView, adding the six UK cities generates the possibility to expand the knowledge of individuals trying to find top-rated local services. With an average of 60 reviews now being posted daily and a total of over 12,500 customer reviews, we are fast becoming a quality and trusted source for local recommendations.
"It is our goal to double our traffic to 200,000 unique monthly visitors by the end of 2010 and to increase our reviews to 20,000," said WhoseView co-founder Helen McCarthy. Ireland was always the test bed for WhoseView and we are delighted with the traction achieved in the 11 months since launch. The objective now is to establish a presence in the UK with our unique offering from that of our leading UK competitors."
Launched in July 2009, Whoseview.ie now receives over 100,000 unique visitors a month from Ireland who have posted over 12,500 customer reviews. In addition to posting reviews and comments, members can invite friends, share their experiences within their trusted network of friends as well as availing of special offers posted by local businesses.
The WhoseView App is also available for download for iPhone on the Apple iTunes store.
WhoseView.ie was co-founded by Helen McCarthy and developed in conjunction with Tom Hayes (pictured). The site won the Best Indigenous Website at the 2009 Golden Spider Awards.
