I send inquiries to few websites for coupons and daily deal offers for submitting my coupon, but they told me they work only through affiliate network, so at first I must be part of aff network. Can someone share websites that work directly with businesses and I can submit my coupons? (I sell digital goods)
Thank you :)
I definitely want to follow this thread as I would love to get involved with this as well.
When I tried reaching out to most of these deal/ coupon sites they said it was for big names with an established brand only...not for small businesses. Once I was doing a giveaway for recipe cards and a blogger put a link on sick deals and I had hundreds of people in the matter of an hour. How do you exactly join a network and most of these sites don't seem to offer paid placement?
Coupon sites can be good for distribution, if they works for your shop. However, as Richard said, a lot of people there are looking for deals from established brands & big box stores so your milage as a small business may vary.
In addition to submitting your coupons to these sites, how about running your own Daily Deals and Coupon promos and finding distribution on social media? Our app OrangeTwig can help you do just that.
