In our research, nearly half reported using Facebook for advertising or promotion. 40% said they have a Facebook page specifically for their business.

The Move Away from Horizontal Media Inevitably, there is a move away from Horizontal media (newspapers, Yellow Pages) to specific Vertical media focusing on one segment or theme. Verticalization is a smart move as horizontal media begins to decline. Verticals provide different entry points for consumers, and boast synergies among related categories (i.e. dining, events) The promise of vertical media is: Focused content Higher value search Better leads Better conversion rates
Verticals: High CPM Rates CPM rates for verticals are highly attractive. They range from $5 to $60 depending on the vertical. As a general rule, rates are higher when they are more specifically tailored towards high value customers. Sources: Adify, Centro

Classifieds on WalMart? Deals from AARP? The new marketplace platforms have extended the reach of items and services to be sold. Walmart, MasterCard and AARP are among the non-media brands that are now posting classifieds and offering deals.
Group Buying: THIS is ECommerce More than 95 percent of $2.5 billion space is oriented toward local. Daily deal publishers earn ecommerce revenues with a no money down model. Deals represent an alternative to a non-intuitive, search-centric approach. Deal participants can see higher impressions than traditional media. They can be upsold with product add-ons.
The Disruptive Potential of Deals The ability to effectively target consumers based on transaction and search is creating an inevitable clash between: Destination deal sites (Groupon and Living Social) Search giants (Google); Sales leaders (AT&T) Financial Institutions (MasterCard, Visa, Amex).
Chicago’s Most Subscribed Media The size of Groupon’s base in each market generally follows population size. The exception of Chicago, its headquarters. Although Chicago is the #3 market by population, it is Groupon’s largest market. Groupon’s email subscriber count in Chicago is much larger than both major Chicago papers together.
Advertising + ECommerce “They get huge exposure exclusively about their business….300,000 emails (in Chicago)….. It is better than Thrillist and Daily Candy, which have CPMs of $250. That would be about $75,000. But with us, it’s all free.” Andrew Mason, CEO, Groupon
