Emeryville, CA, United States, 2009/10/12 - GroopSwoop.com - Social networking’s ability to create open dialogue for people to advise others where to spend money led the company to develop a platform devoted to the phenomenon of Social Bargaining.
Groop Swoop announces the official launch of their website. The understanding of social networking’s ability to create an open dialogue for people to advise others where to spend their money led the company to develop a platform devoted to the phenomenon of Social Bargaining. By negotiating incredible deals with local businesses, communities can influence the discounts offered with the help of Groop Swoop. The company is dedicated to saving locals hundreds of dollars a month by offering coupons to everyday things at a deep discount. Groop Swoop offers group discounts to locals for spas, events, tours, restaurants, concerts, classes and more! Members receive a daily email for that day’s deal, only available through the Groop Swoop Website. When enough people agree to participate in the promotion it becomes valid, encouraging participants to share the deal with their social networks, creating a way for businesses to be part of a viral marketing campaign.
Why Groop Swoop
In the wake of the United States’ Great Recession, Americans have woken up from their dream world of spending frivolously to the reality of buying responsibly. Groop Swoop is helping bring the locals out of the Dark Age of obscenely conspicuous consumption and into the enlightened Age of Smart Shopping. The old taboo of using coupons has become cool once again as consumers are finding ways to get the most out of their dollars.
According to Reuters, 89% of the population uses coupons when shopping. Applying that tactic to service oriented industries is a new phenomenon. Groop Swoop has found a way to bring the community and merchants together by offering groups of customers in exchange for deep discounts.
People are not spending less they are just spending differently. They are going to places they know they like instead of taking a chance on something they may not enjoy. In turn, local businesses are having a hard time attracting new clientele without offering a deal. Some consumers have become so thrifty that they refuse full price goods. Groop Swoop puts “social-bargaining” to use by giving people an opportunity to join “Groop-buys” that are negotiated by Groop Swoop staff. Users share each deal virally, encouraging their social networks on sites like Facebook and Twitter to participate. Groop Swoop negotiates the best deals in San Francisco and then turn to the community’s social networks to buy in and validate each deal.
