Living Social works by offering a direct deal to subscribers, with the participating merchant getting a cut of the proceeds. It is well-established in the Internet marketing industry, but does not partner with every business that applies to be a merchant. Before applying through the Living Social website, peruse the deal categories and promoted businesses to assess whether you're a good match.
To become a Living Social merchant, you must first fill out the online application form. Living Social asks about your business and goals for partnering with the site. Be prepared to divulge your reasons for choosing Living Social -- such as to promote a new product or location, or to jump-start sales for a new business. Provide information about your business size and number of customers, as well as your business' basic contact information and social media sites.
Await a Response
Living Social will contact you upon receipt of your application if they are interested in setting up a deal. When they do, they will consult with you about the terms of the deal and what your business can expect.
