  4. 4. Mobile Coupons Trends<br />According to a recent study by Yankee Group, the number of mobile coupon users in North America is set to increase more than tenfold in 2010, followed by triple-digit increases in both 2011 and 2012. In all, some $2.37 billion-worth of mobile coupon transactions will take place in North America in 2013, up from just $5 million this year, according to the study. It’s clear that mobility represents greater opportunity. <br />
  5. 5. Mobile Coupons<br />How Mobile Coupons Work<br />You Offer 50% off something<br />The consumer buys it on the online site<br />The online site takes 50% of the profit.<br />Example: Downtown N’ Underground Tour Offers $12 Tickets for $6. <br />We Sell 50 Tickets - $150<br />ESDN gets $75<br />They get $75<br />
  6. 6. Mobile Coupons<br />What Mobile Coupons Offer You<br />$0 Upfront Costs<br />Immediate results & cash flow<br />Viral buzz about your brand & company<br />E-mail opt-in list for future marketing to customers<br />The ONLY advertising that guarantees customers<br />
  7. 7. Mobile Coupons<br />Recognize they're not for everyone. High-margin service businesses such as spas and salons were the most successful, with restaurants least successful.<br />They increase exposure. That may be the best thing for your location, but it may also be difficult to handle the rush of business.<br />Ad/Marketing Dollars. Think of it as “free” advertising in markets you might not be able to access. <br />Offer Something, Not Everything. 50% off is a lot – so think about what you can offer that doesn’t sink your ship.<br />
