Group Deals for CPE
Looking for a great deal on CPE? You’re likely to find one at CPE Link for you--and all your friends.
CPE Link has just launched a new “group deal” app on its Facebook page. Just like the model that GroupOn has pioneered since 2008, the deal only kicks in if a certain number of people commit to it by the set deadline.
The group deal concept has been catching on across a variety of industries, and CPE Link is now testing it on the national CPE market. CPE Link creates its group deals within Facebook. The user selects the deal, enters their personal information including credit card, but they are not charged unless the deal parameters are met. Once the deal is activated, the buyers are notified and registered to their CPE programs.
For its premier deal, CPE Link is offering a deep discount on the Federal Tax Update webcast series scheduled for December and January. Participants will get 16 CPE hours for only $236—a great price for this highly-rated live webcast training. To activate the deal, 50 participants must sign up for the deal by November 30.
Using social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, users can spread the word, tell their colleagues, and get the deal to the required number of participants quickly. Once critical mass is reached, everybody wins!
