Google recently launched its Groupon-killer, Google Offers, in Portland, Oregon.
We don't yet know how that launch went.
But Google is now planning to launch Offers in New York and San Francisco. And someone was kind enough to send us the briefing flyer that Google is sending to merchants in these markets to butter them up.
The flyer includes everything that Google is going to do on launch day and the day after launch day to make its first deals in these markets a success.
Specifically, Google is going to "stage events" on behalf of merchants.
