Taking into consideration changes in consumer  behaviors; how Groupon’s Promise affects the consumer’s perceived risk  and cognitive dissonance; the five-stage purchase decision process for a  typical Groupon user; and the psychological and sociological influences  on the Groupon consumer purchase decision process, you, a member of the  corporate marketing team are tasked with developing a formal  recommendation on what actions the company should take to address each  challenge.
