The explosive growth in the group buying market has created an immense online forum connecting merchants with tens of millions of active consumers. Led by fast growing companies like Groupon and Living Social, the group buying market generated over 300,000 consumer offers in 2011. The salon and spa market is the largest vertical market within group buying, on plane to generate over $1B of merchant revenue in the US in 2012.
Many salons and spas that were part of the first wave of group buying had unsatisfactory experiences. They generated lots of revenue, but many lost money on their offers and had a host of operational problems with that resulted in unhappy staff and unhappy guests. They learned the hard way that using group buying is like using a chainsaw: a really effective tool in the hands of a pro, dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.
HeavenGroup’s DealTogether service designs effective, profitable offers for salons and spas and places them with market leading group buying sites like Groupon and Travelzoo. Based on our market aggregation of offers from salon and spas across the US, HeavenGroup is able to provide better splits and terms than salon/spas can do on their own.
When it comes to designing group buying offers, no one better understands how to design offers that sell but also generate an operating profit for the salon/spa. HeavenGroup has designed and placed hundreds of offers for every service in the category. And HeavenGroup’s design expertise leads to offers that generate an average of more than 3 times the national average1 for both salons and spas.
