Quopons is another daily deal website that launched this week in Miami, Florida. Quopons offers consumers “Fantastic Deals” on the best food, services, goods and events. The discounts can reach as high as 90% like Groupon and Livingsocial.com. So, what is so different about Quopons?
From the looks of it, the new social shopping company is truly social. Quopons and merchants create unbeatable deals that consumers really want. “We only send out one email per day featuring one deal to our subscribers,” says Stan Eyler, CEO of Quopons. “They can buy the deal but in order for the deal to reach the ‘tipping point’ and ‘activate,’ a minimum number must buy the deal or it is ‘No Deal,’ which encourages buyers to contact friends about the deal through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.”
Merchants are encouraged to make deals, so customers visit their stores, usually with friends. It’s a fantastic advertising opportunity to attract new customers they were not able to reach with traditional advertising.
During Quopons’ first month, the company featured European Facial Massage, teeth whitening and Brazilian Hair Straightening. The customers tell Quopons what they want and then the company delivers.
Another unique feature is a drawing for a free daily deal.”Quopons hopes to attract new subscribers because customers are buying deals they want regardless of who offers it – meaning deals are not mutually exclusive,” adds Stan Eyler.
Eyler also commented on starting in Miami, “a great place to reach millions of people due to the proximity of Boca Raton and Ft. Lauderdale. Shortly we will be going to other cities throughout the U.S.”
