I am a foodie and everyone knows this. I had heard so much about living social from my coworkers that I decided to check it out for myself to see if I could find any good deals for restaurants in NYC. So I sign up, put in my email, name and city and I go to my homepage to look for some restaurants. But there is no tab for restaurants or food… Weird.. Their categories are really vague and so I click on each of them to see what they have to offer.
I click on each category with the hope of finding some restaurants but I see nothing. I guess there are no restaurant deals for today.
Living Social, I suggest you have a drop down menu for each category with sub-categories because at the moment they are too broad and might turn your clients away.
I realize there is no search bar so I can’t even type in ‘restaurants’.. I’m stuck. It would also be nice to have a search bar so that we can look for specific deals.
Because I was having a hard time on living social finding exactly what I wanted, I went to look for other deal websites. And guess what? Quite a few of them had similar issues with categories. Why? Is this some sort of way to get us to not find the deals we are looking for?
Instead of categorizing them by location only, why not include other categories like restaurants, products, family etc
Same goes for Deal Find.
We love your deals and it would be great if we could find them without navigating through your whole site.
