Week 3 Discussion
Before beginning work on this week’s discussion forum, please review the link “Doing Discussion Questions Right,” the expanded grading rubric for the forum, and any specific instructions for this week’s topic.
Recently a number of companies have offered special discounts to customers who subscribe to electronic coupon services. For instance, an electronic coupon provider will establish a relationship with a restaurant to give discounts to customers who show the restaurant an electronic coupon displayed from their Smartphone.
Clearly, those who have smart phones, are members of social networks, and subscribe to a coupon service, may benefit from this offering. The coupon service can also collect subscription fees from subscribers as well as electronic ad fees from restaurants. The restaurants can benefit by capturing sales they may not have otherwise obtained had they not advertised a discount using this medium.
There are pros and cons to this marketing approach. Research electronic discount coupons.
