Feb 11, 2014 (Tue): Groupon launched its Deal Builder, an online platform that allows local businesses in the U.S. to build their own Groupon deal anytime. The platform which lives on GrouponWorks.com, guides merchants through a step-by-step process and enables them to choose from a series of popular deal templates to construct a promotion that best meets the needs of their business.
Once a merchant is finished, and they have opportunity to review the final product, they e-sign their contract and the deal goes live after a short review process. If at any time throughout the process a merchant needs to speak with a Groupon sales representative, they can reach someone via a live chat button.
“Merchants can tell us how many customers they need and what type of discount they want to offer, and we’ll use our expertise from working with more than 500,000 businesses worldwide to help guide them to create an effective Groupon promotion for their business,” said Dan Roarty, vice president of product development at Groupon.
