A Groupon nightmare
“Is advertising through Groupon worth the money?”
One of the most popular questions for a restaurant owner to ask themselves nowadays.
I would like to share a blog post with you from a restaurant who used Groupon. I warn any restaurants I can from using Groupon, or coupons in general. There is no more expensive way than Groupon to advertise for a restaurant because you lose money on every deal you sell. No restaurant should ever make an offer that loses them money. That is counter-productive.
Please read this one restaurant’s experience using Groupon. There are over 125 comments to their blog post that you should also read.
Here is the blog post from Posie’s Cafe Blog:
There are many other restaurant owner personal accounts of their troubles with Groupon. If you have one of your own or know of someone else’s, please share it here.
