Products vs. Services
Like a lot of people, I’m sure, I have a drawer-full of coupons — for restaurants, haircuts, and even a massage — that are set to expire unused Monday (Dec. 31).
The lines have been too long.
It’s not a deal if you can’t take advantage of it . . .
Oversold and Overcommitted
Which is why I’ve always been leery of Groupon offers for discounted services (vs. products).
The logic: you may have scored a great deal on computer consulting, home contracting, studio photography — you name it.
However, if the small outfit simultaneously (pre)sold services to hundreds of new customers, good luck getting the work done.
