I have had a really difficult time having any of them actually USE me or my classes on their sites: they have me sign the contract, establish parameters where they take 50-70% of the “deal” (I get less than $10 for a $175 class offering) and then they don’t ever even list the class at Groupon or one of the several deal sites.
It’s incredibly frustrating and I don’t plan on repeating my experiences.
Also be aware, Living Social has told me that they aren’t having as much success with fitness offerings so they are taking a bigger chunk (I think more than 60%) “to make it profitable”… for them! They also wouldn’t list the class for more than $30 ($145 discount), then they take 60% so I would offer a month of daily classes and receive $12. There are a ton of classes in the area so I would not expect repeat customers, regardless of the quality of my class.
As you can tell I’m fairly bitter about my experiences. If I sign a contract I don’t like being stuck in the trash for months and months! Good luck with your venture!!
