Trend 3 of 10. Daily Deals
By now you or someone you know gets an email everyday with a daily deal. From Cudo, Jump on it, Spreets, Ouffer, Scoopon and the list goes on. I must admit I get 3 a day and I have grabbed a few deals, a half price meat pack and 75% off yoga. The deal only last 24hrs so they create urgency and emotive purchasing.

While consumers have always looked out for special offers and discounts, new technologies and services mean that 2011 is all about a daily deal.
> More consumers are constantly connected, and when they hear about new deals online they can quickly and easily spread them via their social networks.
> Increasingly, consumers will be part of exclusive networks or groups to either receive special deals or demand them.
> Mobile devices increasingly enable consumers to find or receive dynamic deals right at the point of sale, or to compare prices online. Case in point: Amazon.com
just released an iPhone app that allows users to compare prices by scanning the product’s barcode, photographing it or saying its name.
Get a head of the pack and get onto one of the current daily deal sites, they have massive networks and you can localize your deal, if you are part of a chain it can be even more beneficial with a larger audience. If you want fast numbers and have a fast deal try “Jump on it”. One fitness related deal I saw had over 700 takers of the unlimited one-month pass. Not only did it generate over $28,000 in 24hrs but they now have over 700 new leads to up-sell.
If you don’t need to go to the mass market then use the ‘daily deal’ concept and motivate your members on a daily basis with special classes or program, sign up for a ‘personal training pack’, if you have a retail area it is a great way to get some easy sales.
A few tips….
The deal must be a ‘deal’… It needs to stand out from the other deals… everyone has shop- smarts nowadays, use email or SMS to get the deal out and shared - and reward those that pass on the deal. Make sure you get the conditions right especially if it’s a joining or trial offer, and make it for first timers only.
