Google expanded beyond its core search operation in mobile phones and other products, is developing a local coupon service like Groupon. As Groupon Inc., the service Google offers, offer limited-time offers from local suppliers, such as restaurants. Ten dollars, for example, could buy $ 20 in food at a local cafe. Google bids to operate similarly Groupon or social life – a daily email with a local agreement of days, which expires after a certain period of time. If enough people buy the deal, which goes through everybody has and half price mani / foot, or whatever. Mashable After putting the story out there, Google confirmed that it offers is indeed in development.
Google did not say when it would be available offers or provide more details about its plans. While it is obvious Groupon Google competitor when it comes to offering local deals, the scope of works coupon has rapidly grown to include sites as and Tippr LivingSocial. Gilt Groupe Sales Flash site and newsletter DailyCandy also offer local offerings.
Hat tip to Mashable for the purchase of a piece of confidential data establishing the foundations of offerings from Google, which seems an imitation of Groupon model (which already has a fair share of competitors cloned as LivingSocial, Tippr, and Dealmap Yipit la). The search giant is making some adjustments, of course, using the power of various tools in the toolbox of Google (Google Checkout, Google Analytics, the Google ad networks, etc). Google also has the advantage of being, well, Google. The weight of his own and his career mark with local advertisers can make an attractive option for local businesses that want the immediate injection of consumer interest in hysterics.
Particularly interesting about this movement is that, as we all recall, Google had recently tried to buy Groupon, but the popular promotional site rejected the offer for an initial public offering next year. Therefore, being Google, the spurned suitor proposed to create your own masterpiece. We have to wonder what Google will bring to the table that has not appeared. LivingSocial Groupon and coupons sites are higher profile, but certainly not the only ones. There are food and travel offers, events and salon appointments. There are offers group and individual agreements. We are so used to Google to remove the dust of their products with the charm and the presentation of Google services almost universally loved.
