Featured Groupon Now! Merchant: Rain Boutique & Salon

Today’s featured merchant post is guest-authored by Merchant PR Coordinator, Tom M.:

A milestone is a way to track where you’ve been, how far you’ve come, and how surprisingly useful that rock tumbler was as a gift. We’re excited to announce that Groupon Now! recently sold its 1.5 millionth deal in just under a year’s time. To commemorate this historic event we’d like to highlight one of the merchants that helped push the sales tally past this milestone—transaction number 1,499.616, a salon service at Vancouver’s Rain Boutique & Salon.

Having already sold hundreds of Groupon Now! offers, the success of the real time deals platform isn’t a surprise to Rain’s marketing manager, Raissa Alvero.

“Groupon Now! is a great marketing tool for us. These deals really help drive traffic during off-peak hours,” Raissa said. “The customers who come into our business are consistently awesome clients who come back on a regular basis.”

Raissa likes the fact that merchants have the flexibility to start and stop Groupon Now! deals through a personalized dashboard, providing Rain with the power to manage the flow of customers coming into the business in real time and the ability to analyze the return on investment for future promotional efforts.

Additionally, according to Raissa, Groupon Now! customers have regularly purchased above and beyond the value of the deal in the form of sales in the boutique area of the business and products from the salon.

The 1.5 millionth Groupon Now! deal was sold at CiCi’s Nails right here in Chicago. If you’d like to learn more about becoming a Groupon merchant, please visit www.grouponworks.com.
