Hi everyone. My name is Alvin, and I'm a software developer.
My co-founder and I have recently launched a new group deal application/add-on for online stores.
-Basically, our add-on allows retailers to run deals.
-Deals are by default inactive and require group action to unlock.
-Only way to unlock deal is by clicking the Facebook Like button of the deal.
-Deals each have a Like threshold. Once the Like threshold is reached, the deal is open to its participants only.
-Participants have incentive to share with friends, i.e. to reach Like threshold faster. Others have incentive to Like it more urgently to "squeeze into" the deal before it hits its Like limit.
Benefits are to build traffic and increase brand visibility on Facebook, plus list-building.
What do you think of the product concept?
