Are Daily Deals Next for Medical Industry by PulseOximetersPlus.com
ROCKVILLE, Md., June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — E-commerce is an ever changing industry. Only ten years ago there were many critics that said online shopping will not take over traditional shopping. Now we all know that prediction did not hold true. Over the past few years, the e-commerce industry has taken another drastic turn. We have entered the new discount age. Nowadays, there are plenty of daily deal sites since the success stories for Groupon and LivingSocial fill the online headlines. Daily deal sites have altered the way people discover businesses in a city. We are now seeing the next phase in the daily deal craze with niche sites and other languages, like www.ofertaslocal.com and major corporations like Univision beta testing the daily deal model.
The notion of impulse buying has created a way to drive buyers. Once an offer is made, they are sold within a timeframe of 24 hours as discounts starts at up to 50% or more off. With online marketing becoming a major part of online and offline companies, daily deals site have created another affordable way to capture new clients. Google has shown interest in the industry as well by offering to buy Groupon several months ago without success.
The idea of daily deal coupons and discounts first started for services to be provided but we now see more industries testing out its success. Service based businesses have seen great success, since these services have little or no overhead. These discount websites have now brokered deals for restaurants and even products. The medical device industry is currently beta testing some deals with these websites.
