Great news: Referdia officially launched in January, and is now an International company!
What I am about to share with you all, is what I personally, have experienced as a Business Owner with these online daily deals websites.
Referdia is similar to Groupon and Living Social, but has much more to offer both consumers and businesses.
First, as a Business Owner, I can post deals any time I want. I can choose the amount of discount I want to offer. I choose how many I want allowed to be sold. I choose how many each person can buy. I choose the expiration date. I get paid within 2 weeks whether my deals have been redeemed yet or not.
The amount: 80%! We only made 50% on Living Social, and over 40 of our 4-week passes had already been redeemed in full before we even got a check from Living Social.
Don't get me wrong, it was still worth running deals on other sites too, because they have a different database of consumers, but we were teaching out dance classes for $3 each by the time we had to offer 50% off, and then had to give them 50% of that already reduced price.
On the Consumer side of Referdia—I can customize my interests to only receive deals that I may want. I can add other cities if I know I'll be traveling. I can choose how I want to receive the deals—on my email, iPad, iPhone, text. I can "follow" my favorite businesses to make sure I get an instant alert as soon as they post a deal. I also know that I'm putting more money in the pocket of the business offering the discount I'm taking advantage of.
I started attending Referdia informational meetings, watching Webinars, listening to phone conference calls, and receiving texts from a friend who was at their national convention, and it really made sense to me, so I bought in as a Rep. too! I invite you, the public to my place of business, Tropical Ballroom dance studio, this Sunday, March 18th at 7:00pm for a free informational meeting.
