If you鈥檝e quit your day job in pursuit of that full-time #girlboss life, you know that you need to use every trick in the book on聽how to make your business take off. From networking聽IRL to building your personal brand online, you鈥檝e got it all covered. And now, Groupon, an online service that offers group-based online deals,聽is making it a little easier for you to use that avenue to make sure people are buying what you鈥檙e selling聽鈥 because we know that what you鈥檙e selling is聽awesome, and the rest of the world should find out too!


Groupon has offered聽an online platform for local merchants that鈥檚 made it possible to offer customers deals, track sales and even process payment. But now, the company is taking things a step further by launching a tablet (iPad or Android) app for the platform, just to make it聽that much聽more convenient to access. You鈥檒l be able to use the app to 鈥渞edeem Groupons, monitor campaign performance, share positive feedback via social media and respond to customer service inquiries.鈥 AKA all the things,聽according to Groupon.

And not only is Groupon launching this new app, they鈥檙e actually doing some revamping of the whole merchant platform, including interface updates on the web and mobile tools and expanded options on Deal Builder platform (a self-serve option for businesses to create and promote their own deals).


鈥淲e鈥檝e seen first hand that local businesses can compete in an increasingly connected world and against online giants, and we鈥檙e focused on continuing to enable that competition,鈥 said Aaron Cooper, SVP of Groupon鈥檚 North America services, in a statement. 鈥淭here is no one-size-fits-all approach to bringing in new customers, which is why we鈥檙e giving merchants every option they need to run a promotion with us in a way that鈥檚 the most advantageous for their business.鈥
