1. I have tons of goodies coming up.
2. Groupon and other “deals of the day” and plastic surgery.
I have not done any of these. Today I got the Plastic Surgery Practice magazine, and their lead article was about doctor offices and the “deal of the day” sites. They state “Partnerships between medical practices and third party “deal of the day” organizations such as Groupon, when based on compensation per lead is fee splitting, which is violation of the law in many jurisdictions.” I do not mean to single out Groupon. There are many sites: livingsocial, dailydibs, etc. In the article the people interviewed do feel these laws are antiquated and have not caught up with the internet and e-commerce age. But as of now, deals of the day are in a legal gray area.
Until everything is clearer, I will stick with the good old fashioned specials. They might not be broadcast widely, but I am more about grass root support anyway.
Please feel free to forward on to a friend.
