Benefits of Running Deals
Create A New Revenue Stream
You can drive substantial revenue for your company by running a deals program, since deals put you in the center of the transaction between a customer and an advertiser.
Build Email Database
You can reach a new audience and convert them to deals program subscribers, which then allows you to market to them in the future. Our robust tools – like a site popover, share with a friend, deal credits – are great resources for reaching an even larger audience
Build Advertiser Relationships
Deals are a great way to build relationships with advertisers you already work with, and featuring a deal for an advertiser is the perfect way to showcase just how valuable your promotional services really are.
Target New Advertisers
Partnering with an advertiser to run a deal is a great way to get in the front door and discuss the entirety of your product suite with advertisers who wouldn’t typically buy a media package.
Deals Your Way
Deal Of The Day
Running a featured deal of the day program is a great way to keep the revenue flowing in from deals throughout the year.
Deal cards allow you to offer your customers a fantastic set of deals from either one or multiple merchants. Golf, spa and ski cards are all great ways to drive serious revenue. Learn more about deal cards.
If you don’t have the resources to run a regular deals program, consider running a special store around a particular holiday, season, or event in your community. We’ve seen partners find great success with Valentine’s Day stores, University stores, and Summer Fun stores.
If you don’t want to run several featured deals each week but want the benefit of running deals regularly, you could feature an especially awesome deal – something your audience can’t get elsewhere – and run it for an extended period of time each week or month. This can also be a complement to your regular deals program.
