@elauragreen you are right–connecting with buyers is a challenge, and requires time and research, and a thorough understanding of your business. I like your point about setting limits.
My perspective as a “daily deals” buyer is perhaps a bit different because I have moved to a new community at the end of the last two years. As a newcomer, I heard about and used businesses I might have never found. They provide a low-risk opportunity for me to engage perosnally with a business. But again, it comes back to the fulfillment side. There are many where I am or will be a repeat cusotmer, but close to an equal number where I was disappointed in the service, product, or treatment.
The internet and social media have profoundly changed the way we buy many things, and I think many business owners have been lulled into a false sense that it’s easier to find buyers/customers. I believe it is the opposite–if you dont’ know what YOU are (as a business) and who your profitable custeomers are, it is too easy to miss the mark.
