How to Sell / Distribute Coupons or Gift Certificates
I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to get coupon codes into the hands of potential customers. I have used both the batch coupons module and the fixed price coupons module and I can create discount codes, but how to I get the codes to the customer?
Ideally, I want to be able to generate downloadable pdfs as a product which contain a code that can be redeemed for a fixed amount off, but I'm lost beyon creating the coupon code. Any suggestions?
I would start by using Social Media. It can be free and as easy as setting up a Facebook page for your customers. Then post your coupons daily or weekly to you page. Beyond that there are several coupon posting services like Groupon.com. Facebook and social media might be the better place to start because you can learn and make mistakes or free.
I can't help but believe that there is also still room in the market for another coupon posting web site. You could use what you learn to start your own web site.
