You are NOT alone. They are both Great business and great Ideas When Done Properly, It works very well..
The reason Most Groupon Campaigns Dont work for the majority of people is the same reason their marketing strategy does not work very Consistently.. THEY DO NOT COLLECT EMAILS & They DO NOT Follow UP with Customers..
Pretty much that's what it comes down to. When You Look at it, That is Groupon's entire business model. In The fact they command about 50-60% on every customer they Send You (even if they LIVE IN YOUR BACKYARD) Depending on your negotiating skill) But their ENTIRE Business relies On Email.
in fact, Id bet the companies that Do well with Val-Pack & Groupon Collect every email & make it a point to follow up consistently with offers
Not To Worry, IT is a common mistake that Busy Business Owners Make all the time
Similar to how a-lot Of business owners Dont Post consistently to their Facebook fan page - I see SOme companies go 30, 60 90 days without posting anything
Whats Worse is a-lot of time When they do get around to posting, They get low engagement because the people That Did Like Their Page, in the past just have not heard from them in a month or three.
this is a cycle that s easy to break by deploying a simple strategy. it takes a little bit of effort, BUT is Going to be worth it when it you consider that You are building a solid foundation, NOT just on Social media for your business; But also With Email, Solidifying your relationship with your clients in the future (where having text & email is going to be far more important than it already is) especially as social media sites clamp down on certain people, what happens if your perfect prospects gets banned for 30 days for whatever reason? IF your prospects lose their accounts & You Dont have a back up plan to reach them like text or email, then that becomes a problem. So Dont Wait,
