Where.com – Hyper Local Group buying Mashup!

Where.com acquires hyper local group buying company Local Ginger!


Local mobile based advertising pioneer WHERE, Inc. is North America’s leading location media company. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, WHERE develops a range of location-based services, including mobile advertising as well as search and recommendation services.

Being a subscriber to Local Ginger;  a north shore hyper local focused group buying player has recently become Where.com. The e-mail announcement was ominous as it really didn’t spell out anything of the relationship other than Local Ginger is now Where.com.   All geo specific niche’ group buying entities best take note  as depending upon the end game of this type of parlay made with Local Ginger may work to a similar future for your business.  Local Ginger eased into the group buying space a little over a year ago with a hyper local niche’ business model.  The plan was to take it to other niche’ communities but Where.com came along short term and we are pretty certain will adhere to the LT model set forth by Local Ginger to alpha test group buying in unison with the Where Ads program to really surround the hyper local group buying space.  GREAT IDEA!
