10 Group Buying Services That Can Help Chiropractors Get New Patients

Have you found yourself eagerly awaiting the next deal of the day to hit your email? You know the ones I’m talking about… The ads with the corny slogans that feature offers ranging from elegant three course dinners to speedy oil changes.

If you’re a fan of the deals offered by these websites, you’re not alone. In response to overwhelming demand, group buying services have sprung up seemingly overnight across the country. They range from small local buying services that target only a city or two, like Daily Deal Omaha and Get Sugar, to the more well known heavy hitters like Groupon, LivingSocial, and Dealster. A recent directory of such services listed over a 100 different sites.

Here are 10 of the top listed:

  • Groupon
  • Living Social
  • Buy With Me
  • Home Run
  • Town Hog
  • Social Buy
  • Twongo
  • Group Swoop
  • Yipit
  • BloomSpot

Make no mistake, these group buying services carry a great deal of consumer clout. Groupon boasts over 37,250,00 subscribers and claims to have sold over 41,250,000 deals. This combination of social networking and collective buying has caught on!

The demograhics are encouraging. Followers are avid users of social media, relatively affluent, well-educated and ready to buy. Many of the services use Twitter and Facebook in their campaigns, helping you find consumers you might not ordinarily reach.

How it works

A representative from the group buying service will help you design an appropriate offer and write a promo for your business. On the day of the feature, subscribers will be emailed your unique offer. Many of the companies, like Groupon, require a set number of sales before the deal is officially on. This insures the deal will be profitable both for your chiropractic business and the company running the ad.

The advantage? No upfront cost. Most group buying services take a portion of the deal sold. Payout is quick— Groupon says the check is mailed when the deal is done. Living Social states they mail a check within 15 days.

Does it work? Groupon claims that that 97% of businesses who’ve used their services want to be featured again. So if you’re in need of new patients, you may want to cash in on this unique social networking trend. Give it a try, then let us know how it works for you!
