Here’s what we’ve learned in talking with you about Groupon: You love the exposure—particularly new businesses trying to get known. But the margins are thin, and it’s hard to predict when and how many deals will be redeemed.
Some of you told us you felt crushed by Groupon’s pricing and your inability to turn the deal off before its scheduled time.
We built a deals module for The Alaska App that solves these problems. Unlike Groupon, our deals are free to sponsors.
Want to offer half off? You keep the other half; we’ll keep our fingers out of the pie.
You maintain complete control over your deals from start to finish. Easily turn deals on or off with one click, run multiple deals at once, and target local areas or times of day. Let’s say you’re a tour operator, hotel, or restaurant; it’s Friday, and the weekend doesn’t look busy. With The Alaska App, you can publish a deal instantly—and pull it just as quickly. No paper coupons to redeem or bar codes to scan.
Customers can see all nearby deals on a map; or sort by new, expiring, or hot.
We’ve designed a solution for the Alaska market, and we plan to grow and change with feedback from you. Groupon has a huge following, but with over 60,000 downloads and growing, The Alaska App is not far behind!
