There are countless ways to promote your online coupons using your unique myDealCompass offer link. You can find your link in the myDealCompass dashboard on the “Active Deal” tab. Today, I’m just going to mention three social media promotion outlets.
- Twitter – Twitter is the simplest. All you have is 140 characters. Therefore, you should make it good. Keep your message terse and to the point. Make it a single line call to action with a link right to your offer page. You can use your own link shortening service or twitter will handle it for you automatically.
- Facebook – Facebook requires a little more savvy. Instead of a status update that reads “Check out my new offer,” try instead of thinking about reader benefit. What do people want? Discounts. Say something like “Need a new pair of shoes? Get them at 30% off.” And then include the full link to your coupon offer page – not a short URL. Facebookers like to see where they go after clicking the link. If you target your message to specific types of users, you’ll have a better shot at receiving the traffic you want. And I haven’t even mentioned Facebook pages.
- Google+ – With Google+, your strategy should be the same as it is on Facebook, however, Plussers tend to be heavy appreciators of images and graphics. Try to use an appropriate image with your post to entice your audience to click your link. Again, link directly to your online coupon’s offer page at myDealCompass. And, like Facebook, you can employ a branded page strategy.
Social media is a great way to promote your online coupons. It doesn’t take long and it’s usually free. The biggest challenge is making your offer attractive enough and targeting your coupon to the right audience. Through social media you have the ability to connect with the kinds of people who are most likely to respond to your offers. Now, go get them!
