Move over Groupon, there’s a new dog in town. Actually, it’s an old dog that’s learned a promising new trick. That’s right; Facebook introduced local deals, debuting in five cities including San Diego and Atlanta.
Bowling for 75 percent off? Wine tasting for 50 percent off? The deals we’ve grown accustomed to with Yelp, Groupon, Living Social and Foursquare are now combined with everyone’s favorite social media service.
What’s that mean for you? Well, all the more reason to Facebook, my dear! Never has marketing been so easy and so affordable to small businesses as the opportunities available via Facebook and social media.
So if you’re not riding the social media train, there’s no better time to hop on. You’ve got nothing to lose and a few thousand fans (and deals) to gain.
