Find Deals on Facebook

There were 23 million Americans, about 10% of the U.S. adult population, who found deals online last year. Groupons has 70 million members; Facebook has 500 million users. Now, Facebook wants part of the business by introducing “Deals” in selected cities. Facebook users can purchase a deal on Facebook. Then, the transaction will be updated within the user’s Facebook network.

Business wants Facebook users to “Like” the deals and promotions, more or less because of the power of “Like” on Facebook (for sure, there is a price tag associated with Facebook’s “Like” button). After watching this ABC News video, would you promote your business on Facebook Deals? In the future, do you think Facebook will take over other online discount coupon providers like Livingsocial and Groupons?

  1. Groupon (a portmanteau derived from "group coupon") is a deal-of-the-day website that is localized to major geographic markets worldwide.Groupon also owns several international operations, all of which were originally deal-of-the-day services similar to it, but then re-branded under the Groupon name after acquisition。 Groupon is a kind of popular website in America, cause there are 23million Americans, about 10% of the U.S adult population, and the basically get something just online. To be frank, i will promote my business on Facebook Deals after i have watched this ABC news video, because i can see some oppotunities in this kind of program, i mean the profits of advertisement. Actually, i do not think Facebook will take over other online discount coupon providers like livingsocial and Groupons. the reason why i disagree the former idea is i think the facebook is not mature than other commercial company currently, it should get more chance to inspire some other program as if a kinda system of management !

  2. I think that Facebook is a very useful internet site for promoting and advertising. With such an enormous amount of people using Facebook, it is so easy for people to see certain ads and or coupons. When you see your friends or family "like" something, you are already interested to see what it was that they "liked". Not only is Facebook an easy way for advertising, the word spreads quickly which is great for businesses who have chosen to advertise on Facebook.

Is today's market too tough for upscale restaurants?

Operating a restaurant is never easy, but is it particularly challenging for upscale restaurants?

Restaurants Unlimited Inc., for instance, which operates 35 fine-dining and “polished casual” eateries, filed for bankruptcy in Delaware last week. Earlier in June, the Four Seasons Restaurant, an iconic spot for power lunch in Manhattan also closed for business after its reopening within less a year.

Are these two examples an isolated case or the tip of the iceberg? Then, if upscale restaurants are struggling to survive in today’s market, what challenges are they facing?

The rising labor cost

According to the Bloomberg report, Restaurant Unlimited Inc. hires 50 salaried employees at the chain’s headquarter in Seattle, plus another 168 full-time and 1,885 part-time restaurant workers. The rising wages in Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland have resulted in a total of $10.6 million wage expenses in the fiscal year of 2019. Nevertheless, its revenue for the year ended in May dropped 1%, at $…

Suggestive Selling – All You Have to Do is Ask!! (By Nicole Lee)

A simple, relatively normal thing occurred while in the drive-through at Del Taco with my boyfriend the other day.After placing our semi-high maintenance food order, the person taking my order, in a forced monotone voice, unenthusiastically asks, “Would you like to add our new blah, blah, blah for dessert?”All my sweet-tooth-driven ears heard was “dessert” and I wanted something sugary to complete my four-course drive-through meal. My boyfriend asked if I wanted the donut thing they were trying to push, but I ended up going with a churro.As we received our food, my boyfriend told the server, “Good job on the upsell.”In which we received the same unenthusiastic “thank you” in reply. This all led to a discussion about suggestive selling, how easy it is, how to do it correctly, and how beneficial it is.Of course, this Del Taco drive-through upsell experience did not meet our standards of how to do it correctly, but it worked!
