Online Auctions Company, Flutteroo Celebrate 1 Year Anniversary

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) - The successful pay per bid auctions website, Flutteroo, is toasting its achievements since it began a year ago, with its launch six months after. The team behind the privately funded business have a lot to celebrate as the site has been a hit in providing fun, money-saving auctions.

The company, based in West London, combine traditional retailing with skill, strategy and fun. Led by Dave Hobday, previously from a senior management and marketing background for companies including Procter & Gamble, Sportingbet, HBOS and Telewest, they have blazed an impressive trail within just a year. They set themselves apart from other auction sites by offering three different ways to win bargains; penny auctions, lowest unique bid auctions and price drop auctions, which have all proved extremely popular with players.

Reaching the 1 year mark is a great milestone for Flutteroo, who have achieved big things in just a year and promise to go on and do even more. In a relatively short space of time, they have registered over 40,000 players, closed and won over 5000 auctions and the average discounts enjoyed by winning players so far are in excess of 90%.

They have also struck up partnerships with the Daily Star and Express, which as a result have brought auction games to their websites and widened their reach, plus there is also a recent deal with T3, which will be launching in the immediate future.

Another major success for the online auctions company is the signing of key star auctions, including the new iPad that should see a somewhat significant increase in the number of players signing up.

Dave Hobday, Managing Director and the brains behind the company says that this is just the start for Flutteroo: 'It has been a remarkable year for us and we plan to continue our success with new plans, which we hope will help to develop the company as well as expand our community of players even further'.

The community in question already has a following of over 1000 people on social networking site, Facebook, but Hobday is keen to spread the word about Flutteroo further afield. He is already in the early stages of developing plans for international business, which would see his unique concept for pay per bid auctions being enjoyed by players from all over the world and exposing even more people to the Flutteroo name.
