Are you looking for the skinny on coupons, specifically whether or not to use paper, mobile, or text-based coupons? We’re here to dive into those details a bit and offer our strategic insight and guidance as to how you can grow your business using coupon marketing, specifically texting out mobile coupons.
Coupon marketing offers an incentive to customers. Coupons encourage people to go to your brick and mortar or online store in order to save money. They offer a strategic push to generate sales for you as well as reward your most loyal or new shoppers. They do this by giving potential customers an enticing product to look at and the chance to get it at a discounted rate. This invites them into your store more effectively than any Welcome Mat could!
People make purchases when they have an idea of what they’re looking for and how much they can ‘save.’ Take advantage of a common marketing ploy behind sales, the idea that the customer saves money by spending it. In actuality, you are giving them a good reason to buy a product they have been holding off on buying. True, they aren’t saving any money by spending money. But rewarding your paying customers will increase your bottom line. This will build brand loyalty because your customers believe you are taking care of them and helping them save money.

In both instances, there are too many outside factors to stop or affect the purchase.
