Running my Local Coupon marketing is working!!

44 replies
Revised
I have been running a coupon marketing campaign to local businesses, from restaurants to dental offices. I started two months ago and now earning $3k per month and building rapidly.
We offer a custom coupon service to local businesses, we customized coupons with the discount code and Pr code, and custom message to cater to whatever business we are working with. This enables a business to make more money and pull in more customers with discounts offered to customers when they walk through the door. The campaigns are set up with a WP coupon plug in, and views and or links are also tracked through the same software.
The way we get customers, we cold calling local companies using a local leads software and we have a team that goes out and gives our generic coupons to businesses for 15 days for free, and if the owner wants to continue service after the 15 day trial, we will then charge the monthly fee. By the way we pay our sales people a commission per sign up. This is a good way to generate locally good income!!!

Thanks

      @XponentSYS After the 15 day trial, we charge monthly a little under $100. So just imagine what the potential is. WoW

            The way you run this thread. It might take you dozen posts to finally clarify what you actually do. Even after your last post people still don't know if your "customized coupons" are online, perhaps mobile or offline... That's why it's funny!

    I only use Localizer Leads Tool locally to make phone calls, and also have a small team of 6 people that goes into local businesses to give out the free coupons for 15 day trial.

    No offense to your work, but this is an extremely useless thread. So vague, so cloudy, and so so confused. Either elaborate with detail what you're doing and having success with, or don't start this thread.

          I'm going to take a stab at this:

          I think they are maybe printing up an ad flyers and distributing it manually to businesses an other places. I would be curious about distribution methods?

          They are giving the businesses a free ad for a period of time then selling it to them if they wish to continue.

          Sketchy yet, but am I on the right track?

    Wait what?

    Are you direct mailing the coupons? Are you blasting them out through text message? Are you handing out flyers? Do you have a daily deal website?

    What are you actually doing?

          Giving a small coupon book away for free for the first 15 days, and thereafter if the business wants to continue using the service, we then charge a monthly fee. (residual income)

    Some clarification would be nice on how you're closing sales....I know you've mentioned you've got a sales force of about 6 people...but what are they giving out...a coupon book/flyer/print-out/etc.,etc.,???

    What's the approach they take when they walk into a business?

      LOL - you just started 2 months ago and supposedly created about $6k in revenue and you already bought a new car?

    We deliver coupons to houses and some apartment complexes. Do the business get upset with you coming in with coupons or do you just look for non soliciting signs?

    It's hard for me to understand how you can explain it to your prospects when you are having such a hard time explaining it here. No one gets it. Is this how you sell it? How do people know what you are offering?

    Even the post above where you say someone explains it correctly doesn't make sense to me.

      We pay out sales people $10 per sale... but remember the coupons are easy to sell..Like a 3/5 ratio and or conversion. We have 1 rep getting 10-15 clients a day.

    you offer prospective clients a 15 day free trial of what exactly?

    you make custom coupons for them?
    so you just print some coupons on paper and give that to the business?
    or do you then go an distribute the coupons locally? online?
    the codes are used in store on via their website?
    where does the wp plugin come in?
