Want to gain exposure online, or just find bargains?
One day deal sites are a new wave in online marketing and exposure on the Internet
One day deal sites are a win-win situation for bargain hunters and business looking for exposure. People who want to get an inexpensive deal become fans of 1 day deal websites and email lists, and companies can gain an instant fanbase by offering products and services for sale at a discount. For example, a restaurant can offer a cheap meal or special that actually becomes more discounted as extra people sign up to take advantage of it. Stores can offer deals on products or even excess inventory at steep discounts. Test marketers who want to see how well people respond to new foods, gadgets, or offerings can use 1 day deal websites to understand how customers react to a product.
While the most famous daily deal site is Groupon.com (which rejected $6 billion from Google) there are quite a few other sites out there which offer one day bargains. Living Social, BuyWithMe, and Google Offers are all competitors in this arena.
