It’s a well-known fact that higher-income, higher-educated people find and redeem coupons. The population of computer-using, coupon-hunting people is growing exponentially. Every day, more people are signing on to various business marketing membership sites and programs to get the inside scoop on what’s available at a discount.
Smart business marketers know they can use coupon offers to attract new customers without giving up profitability.
Recently, a residential garage door company and moderncoupon business subscriber incorportated a $50 discount coupon and made a sale for a new garage door sale & installation. That $50 discount represented less than 10% of the over all sale. A $700+ sale that could have gone to a competitor. Because the customer found his coupon, the buying barrier was lowered and a profitable sale was made.
I recently convinced a hair salon owner to give moderncoupon a try. This fellow was initially against using coupon offers for his business, yet he was really feeling the pinch of the economic downturn. I suggested 2 offers:
1. A discount for new clients. This is rather mundane but it IS an enticement for someone looking for a new hairdresser. Every hair salon ad has a similar coupon.
2. A 10-haircut package for a deep discount. THIS is a coupon offer you don’t see often.
About a month past and no calls or redemptions came in until last week. That’s when a doctor who lives about 5 miles away called for and came in as a response to the 10-haircut offer. This is the kind of sale this salon owner never considered and never thought possible. A huge win-a high-ticket sale and a new customer all at once.
In both cases, these 2 business owners will have likely had their marketing expense on moderncoupon.com covered for the year with just one sale and one new customer.
How many new customers a year do you need to cover the cost of a small business marketing system that’s about the price of a cup of coffee a day?
