I haven’t read one of these stories in a while….. but Mashable have posted a story about a London based cupcake business that once again underestimated capacity planning and the Groupon spike.
To any business….
Think best case (low sales volume via Groupon)
Think worst case (high sales volume via Groupon)
Think ohmigod I’m gonna have to hire temp staff (wave goodbye to the bottom line)
Shall we have a sweepstakes on when these stories will stop?
