Want a business idea? If your country still doesn’t have a clone version of groupon.com, then it’s the right time to start one.
I am bit late in this, since in Malaysia there are almost 20 sites with the same type concept like Groupon has pop up in the last few months. So, it’s not much worthwhile to stick my head in this business.
To setup your own groupon.com clone, it is very easy. Don’t waste your time developing the website yourself. You could easily setup your clone site within days, by buying the script from Group Script. They will customize your site for you.
By using Group Script solution, you could easily post new deals, plus the system could be integrated with Paypal or Authorized.Net. Just like groupon.com you could share the deals with your friends and family via Twitter and Facebook. It’s has newsletters feature to keep your subscribers up to date with the latest deals in town. Plus, lot’s of interesting features.
Setting up your site is the easy part.
The challenging part in this business is to pull the crowd to your site. So, this is where you need to be creative. You could kick start your project by using Google Adword, do some internet marketing stuff. And if you have thick skin, do some pr job by introducing your site in the newspapers and television stations.
