What are discount coupons?
As a marketing strategy, coupon marketing targets consumers’ desire to save money on purchases. Affiliates offer coupons to their current and prospective followers to promote their services. In general, digital coupons are designed to entice consumers to make a purchase on a retailer’s website by offering a certain percentage discount, free shipping, or some other type of discount.
What can coupons do for merchants?
With coupons, you can offer special promotional pricing for website visitors in your shop. You can also pay your affiliates for referring customers who use your coupons. Coupons are an effective way to offer product discounts and motivate your affiliates to advertise your site more frequently. It is no secret that people love saving money on purchases. The ability to offer products at a discount can drastically impact customer loyalty and satisfaction.
A coupon is one kind of banner which is offered in Post Affiliate Pro, allowing you to create as many coupon groups (promotions) as you wish within one campaign. There is no limit to the number of coupons or coupon banners you can display in any of the campaigns defined in your affiliate program.
For instance, you may have a 10% discount promotion and a 30% discount promotion. Affiliates will be able to request coupons for both promotions, and you can generate separate sets of coupons for each promotion.
With the use of Post Affiliate Pro’s affiliate coupon tracking feature , as soon as your customers use coupons received from an affiliate, you will know which promotion the coupon belongs to, which affiliate gave the coupon to the customer, and which campaign it belongs to. With this information, you will know exactly when conversions take place and how much commission is paid to your affiliates.
