You can create hundreds of coupon deals yet never see one redeemed in your business. Why? Because no one gets to see them. A website like myDealCompass can help you to promote your coupon deal and you’ll most likely receive a lot of new customers. That’s great for your business and great for your new customers, but is it enough?
Local deals also need some input from the local community. One of the most potent forms of advertising is word-of-mouth and in this age of the Internet, word-of-mouth includes the sharing of information across social media sites. If you have offered a great local deal, there is a good chance that customers are already telling their friends. It also helps if you give your customers a gentle prod every now and then.
What sort of prod? All it takes is to suggest to a customer that they tell a friend or two. This can be through a simple sign at the checkout – for example, “like us on Facebook at xxxxxx and don’t forget to tell your friends.” These or similar signs are popping up everywhere now. They are also appearing on business cards and advertising flyers, emails, and on websites. You can even make this suggestion on your local deal coupon. You can even include the myDealCompass logo on your print materials to let people know that your most up-to-date deals are easily located.
In this way, your local community shares information and spreads the word about good deals. If you’re a customer and you’ve received a good deal, tell others so they can share your experience. In the past, we have been quick to talk about a poor experience whilst just accepting a good experience. At myDealCompass, we rely on members spreading the word – you gain the benefit as a customer, and businesses gain – and that’s what inspires them to create more great local deals.
