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.

Really excited to be working with sencha, and would love some feedback from the community on ways to improve the Sencha Touch version of our application.
RateCred is the social game that lets you rate any place and then share with your friends using Twitter to earn cred and offers. We recognize that your opinion is valuable, so why shouldnt you recieve recognition for your expertise? That's why leaders in the game get special awards and recognition for being a thought leader, what we call "cred". RateCred makes it easy to share opinions about your likes and dislikes for any place you go. If you have a Twitter account you already are signed up for RateCred.
Our application is currently available for free on android market, the Sencha Touch effort is intended to at least provide iPhone support and at best to converge our mobile client platform.
Any advice, critique, or comments are greatly appreciated.
