Reward Your Customers With Google Places CouponsPosted: Monday, April 15, 2013 at 2:18:00 PM EST by Richard Norris
Second to a website, a Google Places listing is the most essential online tool for a small business to have.
In a previous post SiteZero discussed how to set up a Google Places listing. However, to deliver you more value, we are going to share with you about the coupon and deals feature within Google Places.
Coupons and deals are a fantastic way to address new clients and depending how you set it up an even greater way to attract returning customers.
Coupons are longer lasting than deals, as deals have a 30 day validity that is set by Google. Coupons have been used to offer a discount to the customers next purchase, or a buy one, get another one free scheme.
On the other hand deals have been used to offer more drastic deals as they only run for 30 days. For instance, free shipping for the next 30 days.
You setup your deal or coupon through Google Places and for your customer to reddem it, they either print out the relevant offer or, have the offer displayed on their mobile phone and bring it in to your store to claim it. Either way, any e-commerce through your website isn't affected.
If you haven't yet setup your Google Places listing check out our post on how to set one up.
