5) Gap / Groupon – This may not be considered one of the best social media campaigns ever by most, but I believe that Gap had the right idea and they succeeded. Gap offered a $50 gift card for $25 as a nationwide offering on Groupon. That alone brought in $11 million revenue and is probably one of the most successful Groupon campaigns ever. Their goal was to bring in new customers and they believe that they’ve succeeded initially. They will only really know their level of success by card redemption’s and surveying those who use them to see about repeat business.

Apart form the obvious checking to see if their photo appeals to you, there are other things to look out for. See if there is a number of photo’s in different situations, maybe with friends on holiday etc. The more the better, this will help you to know that the person is real (safety is critical) and gives you an idea of their life style. One photo is concerning because it might not be the person your replying to. If you are interested in this person ask for more photo’s to be sent to your ‘dating only free hotmail account’. It’s not difficult to get a digital photo, cameras are everywhere, even in phones. If he or she refuses then walk away.
