Business Webinar – Marketing Concepts

December 14, 2013

file0001523070476 - resize

People go into business to market sell their great ideas.  In order to do that, they need customers who need or want what they have to sell.  Marketing is about how to attract those customers to the business so that they can purchase the products and services.

In order to attract the customers, the business owner must learn everything he/she can about the business, the products, and the customer.  If the business owner does not learn the steps to successfully marketing the product, the business will fail.

In order to help the start up business owner or the person who has been in business for several years to become acquainted with marketing the business on the Internet, I have developed a series of weekly webinars entitled “Marketing Concepts.”  (To register, click onto “Marketing Concepts.”)

Are Coupons a Good Marketing Tool?

October 2, 2011

If you are considering offering a coupon to you customers to increase your sales, think again. Internet coupons are not as profitable and popular as they used to be.

Business owners are reporting that people are calling in to ask if the company would match a coupon from another company. Because of the many deals available, there is no loyalty among the customers. If a customer took advantage of a price discount, they often would find a similar offer with another company and buy the same product or service again. Business owners have found that the people who use coupons are hard to please and complain about their purchases on the review sites on the Internet.

Groupon, which is the largest coupon site on the Internet, is now facing financial woes, because their business is no longer profitable. Eighty percent of the people who subscribed to the site never made a purchase. At one time, Google offered Groupon $6 billion dollars to purchase the company, but they turned it down, believing the company is worth more.

Compounding its troubles is the appearance of copycat coupon sites which have saturated the coupon market making it difficult for Groupon to make a profit. These copycat sites have closed, reformulated, or merged and Facebook and Yelp are no longer interested in entering the market.

Although the daily deal coupons do create brand awareness, they are not cost-effective, because the coupon site has to share the profits with the merchant. The future of Groupon is uncertain as they struggle to make profits.
