O TB findings completes one year of life this Saturday (22). Born a month before Black Friday, the group of offers from technoblog already has more than 20 thousand members in Whatsapp and telegram who receive first-hand tips daily. Many people saved by buying better, taking advantage of real promotions, mined by those who understand the subject and don’t have a tail with anyone. 🙂
In 365 days, the team at the largest independent technology site in Brazil published 4,000 offers in groups alone. “Only” because Findings goes beyond messaging apps: we also chose some offers that are shared here in the TB editorial. Not everything makes it to the site, as the biggest discounts end soon, so groups end up being the simplest option so you don’t miss any opportunity.
There’s even smart lamp fandom 💡
Laura Canal, content assistant at ALSO, has been in Achados since day one. “The launch Friday was very busy, but at the same time everyone got excited and got together in the biggest ‘come here’ mood, which was amazing because until that day the project was happening more separately from the rest of the team”, remember.
“I imagined the groups growing and I kept thinking about the reaction of the people of the site knowing this new project. But I couldn’t imagine such a nice exchange with some members of the groups and the Community that we know always participate. There are people who even give their feedback after buying a product they saw on Achados, which even created a fandom of smart light bulbs”, jokes Laura.
Gustavo Guerra recalls one of the best tips of 2021: “I was already following the technoblog because of the technology news, and on Black Friday I was attentive to all groups, but nothing very relevant caught my attention. When I saw a 25% cashback offer on the MacBook Air M1, I almost fell out of my chair, because when you do the math, the final value was even cheaper than importing”. He was invited to join Achados later that year as a bid analyst.
Findings is an extension of the TB team spirit
As you can imagine, the team at technoblog loves technology, because it analyzes, reports and buys TVs, cell phones, headphones and many other products (not just electronics!). And Achados is an extension of what we were already doing on our internal Discord server: there was always a Lucas Braga or a Felipe Ventura with a tip to buy the same product cheaper, recommend a better cost-benefit option or even let a colleague know not to get into a cold.
It is this spirit that we decided to bring to the groups. At the telegram and on Community you can even comment on promotions, even with a tug of the ear if we haven’t found the best opportunity. And anything goes: in addition to coupons from the stores themselves, we go after higher cashback percentages or good rewards in miles (whoever heard the Tecnocast on credit card points You know).
Of course, always prioritizing the best opportunity means that sometimes we won’t make money from the referral — we also publish offers without an affiliate link, which don’t generate commission for the ALSO. But we believe that this is a differential that brought Achados to this point, and that only the largest independent technology site in Brazil could offer. Nobody needed another offer group like all the others, right?
