In a sense Groupon has become a leper in the industry it pioneered: Some competitors are trying to “un-Groupon” themselves with customer loyalty programs. Where does that leave the company with its own version, Groupon Goods?
Still, Groupon’s ahead of its competitors with money made from daily deals.
And one firm that grabbed on to the daily deal model is claiming that its sales staff will soon surpass that of Groupon. That boasting might fall a little flat in the business community.
