Q: Who will they give it to?
A: People who bring them "Patrons".The Local Referral Value Chain
Q: So where are the foodie blogs, e-columnists and internet journalists represented in the value chain?A: They are being ignored.
Q: What is the difference between the Yellow Pages and Yelp?A: Google.
Getting a deal is great, but once the deal is over what really makes you want to come back? If you only came for the deal in the first place chances are that you did not come for some other reason, like because you love the business or what they do. There is no sense of trust or authority in the deal referrals, so the customer does not really care about more than how much they saved. Deals are great to get people into the business but they do little or nothing to build long term customers that will become "Patrons".Q. What happens when the deal is over?A. Nothing.
Q. How do the social aspects of LBS build upon expertise?A. Very Poorly.
Q. Is there a way to reach local markets without a giant sales force?A. Yes. Engage the experts in each market and make them a integral part of the Local Referral Value Chain.
