Yawn! Deals and Location “Giants” Pair Up
It feels like every time something happens in the deal space, especially something that involves Groupon, it’s important to tell our readers about it. Then when the post goes up there is literally little to no response from our readers and I honestly don’t know why. Maybe today you can help us out here at Marketing Pilgrim to figure this out.
Last week, Groupon and Foursquare joined forces. This in and of itself is not that earth shattering because Foursquare has proven itself to be a deals slut by partnering with LivingSocial, AT&T Interactive and anyone else that comes along with a deal, so to speak.
The difference here is that the godfather of deal sites, Groupon, has let Foursquare kiss its ring and is allowing the location based service provider to associate it with the don of deals.
Now, here is the question to you the readers. Why is it that when we discuss the deals space, which seems like one of the hottest spaces in the Internet marketing world considering the amount of press it garners, do you show little interest?
- Deals are deals are deals?
- Enough already with the deals “news” my inbox is bulging with these online mailers?
- It’s simply overhype?
- My business doesn’t participate in the deals space?
- The reality is that I can only eat so many meals at restaurants desperate for any business?
- Something else?
Do us a favor and let us know whether you even give a rip about the deals space anymore. It would be great to get your feedback on this area of Internet marketing with regard to its newsworthiness.
After all, if it’s not a good deal for you when we write about the space then maybe we need to focus somewhere else. Deal?
