was initially aware of this pattern of Groupon, I think it is very interesting, then the heart was so low cost of entrepreneurship seems to be able to create such a miracle, if in COPY TO CHINA, it also got. Indeed, after 1 months, China everywhere Groupon imitators, hundred regiments kicked off.
Chinese earlier launched the group purchase website is the beginning of Wang Xing team launched meituan, launched in the U.S. group net in just two or three months, the domestic is the emergence of a large number of followers, or copying plagiarism GroupOn in web interface, business model and process design etc.. Among them, the more well-known are: handle network, glutinous rice network (thousands of oaks), fierce buy network (physical goods to buy more).

In addition, for many catering, leisure, entertainment and health services businesses, on the one hand, can greatly enhance the popularity, on the other hand, for their own brand of propaganda also plays a very important role, is a kind of effective advertising channels.
Unpopular with the technical threshold of
