Is your ecommerce business using online coupons? Are a good portion of your sales coming from Texas and other southern states? Well, if so why aren’t you? A recent survey by a popular coupon site reported that 51% of coupon users came from Texas while a good portion of the rest coming from other southern states. By offering coupons, you can increase your sales and land those particular customers that are looking for that extra discount on a great deal. You should submit your coupons yourself to all the coupon sites like retailmenot.com and couponcodes4u.com.
You will also need to make sure yoursystem and shopping cart can handle coupons. When I first read this report, I thought maybe Texas was at the top because we do not have state income tax. But if you think about that, it doesn’t make any sense. The only conclusion I came to is we are probably a more thrifty state than everyone. Texas is a large state, so don’t lose out on a lot of business because you don’t offer any coupons. 5 or 10% off or free shipping coupons are ones that can do a lot great work for you. We are located in Texas and I myself generally look when buying something online. It takes a second or two to see if you can find a coupon. If you do, it makes you feel like you just received a present.
