News: Rotherham company starts a discount revolution


With fears of a credit crunch hitting people in the pocket, a Rotherham entrepreneur has started a national discount revolution. And he reckons it has already saved the public £30m. Mark Pearson started MarkCo Media a year ago and set up the UK’s biggest discount codes website, and MarkCo has deals with hundreds of companies who provide it with discount codes in return for the extra business the Rotherham company supplies for them. “The companies are happy for us to have the codes because we generate so much more business for them,” said Tom Packer, head of web development. The company has around 2,500 codes for discounts on different sites – with a massive range of products on offer. From GAP to baby-care to DIY, the websites will have a code for it. MarkCo Media has been working out of Moorgate Crofts, one of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council’s specialist business centres for start-up and growing companies, for the past month. The company has been gradually increasing its internet-based trade with the help of business advisers from the council’s regeneration arm, Rotherham Investment and Development Office (RiDO). “We’ve had some great advice from RiDO,” said Tom Packer. “They’ve helped us recruit five new members of staff so far and are always on hand to give advice and tips about the business. “And Moorgate Crofts has been a really good venue for us – it’s given us the opportunity to grow without adding in the costs that that would otherwise incur.”
