Aklamio, the leading European technology company for refer-a-friend and referral marketing programs takes over firal, a Hamburg based Startup and its software Pay with a Tweet. In 2017 further expansion in Europe and U.S. are planned.
Since its start in 2011, Aklamio has grown to become one of the leading European providers for referral marketing programs. The company is based in Europe’s Startup-Capital Berlin and currently active in seven countries on the continent. Market leaders like PayPal, Vodafone, E.ON, REWE, Telefónica and others are using Aklamio’s technology for their referral programs. Further expansion plans into the U.S. and U.K. markets have set the ground for the acquisition of firal.
firal is connecting referral marketing with the reach of social media channels. Users receive discounts, vouchers, and other goodies for the referrals. With its marketing solutions firal convinced over 150 online shops in Germany, U.K., Spain and the U.S. to use its sophisticated technology. Through its online campaigns firal generated over 10 million social media shares.
With the takeover of firal, Aklamio wants to offer its service as well to smaller and medium sized companies.
