Local Business coupon site

18 replies
Has anyone had any experience with a coupon site where local business can make their own coupons online and then customer can print them at home.There's a company that's doing it and looking to have others start their own site in their areas for monthly fee you get website,hosting and maintenance and any revenue you make from yearly fee you charge business is all yours.1 yearly business fee paid will pay a month's fee the company would charge me for site.Any suggestions?
Thanks Again

      That would up to the business that creates their coupons on the site as they can design it online as they please and determine whats on coupon and how long or for what its good for your hands free of that they do the coupon you just provide the sit and get traffic to it from local shoppers.They can do 1 coupon or as many as they wish no limit during the year they pay you.I have pm'd you the main site as not to post here and possibly break any rules.

    Not really sure what the question is actually but, yes, I have a few different "local business coupon sites" spread throughout a few different cities. Haven't really ever heard of a business like you are referring to. I simply bought the domain, talked to a few "test businesses, drove specific traffic to it and then started charging. There is definitely money to be made in that area. What you charge will depend on what the market can take. One of mine is a yearly type payment and the others are monthly. I would suggest doing it yourself, but if you must use another company be sure to check them out real good before making a commitment.

    Site I am talking about is Canada and Us based but I would say UK could be added if you ask site owners sure they'd like it.Here's the site check it out as I have no affiliation with it just considering setting my local region with them as that's what they do and wondered if anyone here had success with local coupon sites.

      Hi all

      anyone have any updates on local coupon sites??? Any one had any experience with the "Local Coupon System" by Howie??? It seems expensive - but if the support is there might be worth while.

      What about deal per day - it sounds really good - except that your monthly fee is based on how many members you have, what scares me is that members don't necessarily buy anything, could get expensive quick.

      any luck on any other programs?? I'm in a remote town in Ontario Canada - so some of the coupon sites that are pre-populated with coupons - the coupons might be for U.S. purchases.

      any suggestions??

      thanks

        do you mind sharing which site you are talking about in your earlier post - I've emailed the citywide coupons site twice now - but they haven't responded.

        I too would like to start up a local coupon site - I'm not near any major cities - so need to rely on the coupons of the locals

        thanks

        you can email me at greenwoodstables@gmail.com the names of the coupon site - the one that you refered to as being $169 per month??

    The Online Coupon companies that pretty much follow Groupon's seem to have a win win Business Plan. Like Adzzoo who geo target local businesses is what I enjoy. Living in Florida the savings are 50% to 90%. We save money and the Business owner builds business. I have only been a consumer the business owners design their sites and you buy the coupon and it prints out like a receipt. Kinda cool I like it.

    I have to travel 45 mins to Tampa or Orlando, would be nice to have a local one Virtual Ghost. The beach is nice so make a day of it, I could not find a coupon online that does not have a Small to Corporate business funding the Marketing

          Yes, Qnanza is in beta and is following the business plan of Groupon. They are promoting a 3 month trial for Business owners. We have the option to be a Representative to earn a commission to make an appointment that takes the offer of a online coupon. It is not necessary to live in the 13 cities being tested.

          As I learn more on the rules of the Warrior Forum. I will add a signature link to learn more but want to be sure it is appropriate.

    This seems like a highly competitive space. Your competing with large companies like Groupon and Living Social with huge ad budgets. Is anyone really making a profit from sites like these?

    These sites are definitely big online, I'm from Asia and from what I know, Engoso, Gorupon (Beeconomic) and DealGrocer are pretty popular here. Anyone knows what are the more popular ones with great deals in Southeast Asia?
