Today I stumbled upon a post on BlackySky.com that seemed quite interesting. S/he discusses some research that they were doing about Groupon and whether or not a friend should use the service to promote their small business [worth the read].
From there, I went on to a source article at AllBusiness.com. Now I should note that in general I am suspicious of anything on the internet that is so popular. A sort of path of least resistance fear. While I have never used Groupon myself, I can see what happens – you find a great deal – use it – and now I move on to somewhere else.
Every now and then it seems like it is 2000 all over again, and everyone is trying to jump on some magical bandwagon.
