So with all these social sites like Facebook and Twitter that have a large percentage of the population addicted to there computers,whats next? My thought is that the new trend is leaning to group buying sites or "Daily Deals" sites. They really are an amazing thing. They make deals with businesses like restaurant, salons, massage etc, in your areas to offer there product at 50% off minimum! Some deals have been 90% off! The advantage to this for the business is that they get the shotgun affect of advertising. They are exposed to hundreds of thousands of local consumers in a 24 hour window that they are featured and they pay for the advertising with there own product, virtually cost free. These sites are starting to pop up regularly now. My friends just started one here in Salt Lake. They are building there email list up so they can start offering deals. They plan to offer deals that no other group site has before! Do you think that these sites will be the "new thing" or just a flash in the pan? If you want to support a local company start up, please visit there site.... No cost to subscribe. In fact it will save you money!
