MyVoucherCodes to help small businesses offer online vouchers

Launchpad programme will look to provide an affordable way for small firms to tap into "millions of UK consumers"

UK voucher code website has announced the launch of a new programme to help small and medium businesses reach their current and potential customer base with online vouchers.

The Launchpad programme will look to make it easier for companies to advertise discounts and benefits and is free to register with no commission for the first three months.

MyVoucherCodes was founded in 2006 by Young Gun and former chef Mark Pearson. The entrepreneur funded the entire venture himself and, after selling his wholly owned company as part of a £55m deal last year, has built up a personal portfolio of 20 investments in the e-commerce space.

Pearson commented: “As vouchers are responsible for billions of pounds of UK transactions every year, they are a critical piece of the ecommerce pie. Until now, the high barrier to entry meant vouchers were really only affordable for big box merchants, so we are thrilled to now offer small businesses an affordable way to offer discounts and deals for their customers.”

“This initiative bolsters our ongoing commitment to supporting the growth of UK enterprise, helping small businesses with brand awareness and customer acquisition and consumers to find great deals!”

Business owners can sign up for the MyVoucherCodes Launchpad programme from 31 March here.
