Google Set To Enter Daily Deal Market with Google-Offers


Google is set to launch “Google Offers”; the search giant’s competitor to popular daily deal sites like Groupon and SocialLiving. Google Offers is structured as a group buying service that will attract customers with daily deals sent via e-mail. Like other daily deal sites, Google Offers will give its users a chance to purchase the localized “deal of the day” which will have a fixed time limit (24-48 hours). Once the required number of people have signed up for a deal, the Google Offers discount will be triggered.

Google Offers is also expected to use a number of social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader and Google Buzz to market its daily deals. → Read More
