Groupon is a deal of the day website that offers time-sensitive group discounts to members on products and services. A lot of times members can save anywhere from 40-60% off of regular retail price on items and services such as supplements, haircuts, massages and even Thanksgiving dinners.
For this post, I’ll show what kind of deals a user can get on GroupOn. More specifically, somebody interested in becoming a photographer or videographer.
Some of the things need to become a successful photographer or videographer include the obvious, like a DSLR or mirrorless camera, microphone and memory cards. As well as the not so obvious, such as training materials, lens filters, a tripod/monopod and photo editing software.
When I searched for these items, I found the following deals offered by businesses in the greater Los Angeles area:
As you can see, there are a lot of deals to be found on GroupOn if you’re an aspiring photographer or videographer. You can buy your camera, tripod, memory card and lens filter separately or piece by piece, if you’re on a budget. Or buy the complete starter bundle at $799, for a 20% discount. You can also get great deals on photography and video editing training at a discount of 50% or better.
Although some of the items needed to be a successful photographer or videographer weren’t found on GroupOn like photo editing software or brand specific lenses, users can still find good deals, if they look hard enough and frequently.
Some of the deals are not as good as the one’s to be found on Amazon.com, especially for electronics. So, I would have to say Groupon is best for service items, such as training courses and personal services. You can find great deals on learning lessons, like real estate license training, social media marketing course and of course, photography lessons.
