I would go with adding value instead of discounting. Trying to get loyal customers with a low price marketing strategy is not good business in the long-term.

With that said, Groupon and Living Social marketing campaigns can generate long-term ROI, but it takes a lot of planning and proper execution. Here are just 3 tips to consider for a successful Groupon or Living Social marketing campaign.

1. Be creative in getting contact info for email, direct mail and text messaging follow ups. I have bought numerous vouchers and not a single business has tried to follow up with me.
2. Must try to upsell and downsell and all employees must know how to handle promotion. Taking the redeemed coupon and throwing it in the trash can is not smart business.
3. Tracking the campaign

There are plenty of other things, but many small business owners spend too little time and effort on something that can take their business to the next level or ruined it.

Smile Best web hosting for small businesses.

Hello There.

You need a web hosting service which supports on line payments like, Master Card, Visa & Pay Pal. It is very important that your service be up time. It means that you can access your account whenever you want to update your web pages, and your visitors can view your website whenever they input your website address. If your hosting service is not up time it is real hell.

Thanks
Jason Kevin
