Have you considered using coupon codes for advertising?

By   /  July 12, 2014  /  No Comments

Bath and Body Works recently had one of their semi-annual sales, and as a result of my spending I may be homeless. (I will, however, be the best smelling and most moisturized homeless person you’ll ever encounter.) I did not need any more scented things for my body. Were there to be a zombie apocalypse that resulted in all things lavender and pearberry scented becoming unavailable, I would still have more than enough to live a long and artificially scented life.

The point of this (there may well be one), is that I didn’t shop because I needed anything; I shopped because there was a sale. This doesn’t just apply to women, though. Steam, a site that sells games online, has melted many a man’s credit card during their summer sale. (To be inclusive, we’re aware that many men like to smell nice and a number of women like to blow up orcs.) The point is that sales and coupons are a great way to drive traffic to your site or business, especially if it’s a time of the year that normally equates with an income slump.

The beauty of coupon codes is that they give you an excuse to splash them all over social media sites, include them in PPC ads and get listed on sites like https://bit.ly/1sZOVjz. Using different coupon codes, you can even track where your sales are coming from, which is helpful if you’re using print media as a way of advertising specials.
