I’m interested in meeting with Groupon employees and former employees when I visit Chicago next week.
I will be in town from the evening of Sept. 1 through the evening of Sept. 6 and would love to meet with you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please put “chicago” in the subject line.)
Some things you may be wondering:
Who the heck are you and why do you want to talk to Groupon employees?
I’m a journalist who has been writing extensively about Groupon and the daily deals space. You can read and watch my coverage on my Groupon resource page. I want to talk to Groupon employees to share a more complete picture of what Groupon is all about.
Are you interested in only negative stories?
Absolutely not. I want to share the good and the bad about Groupon. Yes, my reporting has been largely negative — but that reflects what I’ve been able to cover in talking with merchants and employees. If you have a positive story, I’d love to share it.
Will you keep my identity confidential?
Absolutely. If you would like to remain anonymous, I will honor that.
Where will you be?
To preserve anonymity, I won’t be sharing locations, but will schedule a time and location that works for both of us.
I can’t meet with you while you’re in Chicago, but I’d like to share my story. How can I do that?
Drop me an email and we’ll find a time to talk on the phone.
Do you pay for interviews?
No. Like most respectable journalists I don’t pay for interviews.
