Create A Coupon Website
The concept of a coupon website is similar to an affiliate website, and that is to generate sales for others.
But these websites leverage a brilliant psychological notion that encourages people to buy, and that is to offer discounts or coupons.
Following statistics show the importance of coupons and discounts on purchase decisions made by internet users of various age groups.
Discount websites make money through affiliate marketing, when a visitor clicks on buttons like “View Deal,” “Get Deal,” “See Deal,” etc. they’re being referred to a merchant site through an affiliate link.
Websites earn commissions when their referrals buy products.
This system also works in other way, merchants assign specific coupon code to a particular coupon website, when a buyer clicks on buttons like “Show Code,” “Show Coupon,” he or she is shown the previously assigned coupon code.
When the buyer enters that coupon code at checkout, the merchant knows from where the buyer had been referred, and the coupon website is rewarded with commission.
Some of the top discount/coupon websites such as Groupon, Retailmenot, Techbargains and more use this model to earn millions of dollars every year.
You can implement the same idea in your niche and make money.
People are always searching for coupons and discount offers when they’re about to buy something.
