I Want to Have A Business That Offers Discount Coupon Codes

Hi to all gurus out there,

I want to do business that sort of offering discount coupon codes (products of any niche) in my website. I just don't know what is the exact term to call it,or what to search for.

Any advise that could help me how to start, or tips what websites or platforms to find would be highly appreciated.

Best regards,
jgmonva

They're called couponing sites, e.g. Groupon.com. There already are plenty of those around so do you really want to add to the list? Maybe put your time and energy into something else.

Hi Vaguar,

Yeah, that groupon dot com you mentioned. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. I want to take my chances in this type of online business.
I just don't know how they're able to have access to those great deals and discounts. Any help and tips will be highly appreciated.

If you have a website then you need a good developer for generate a coupon code formula in your database. Like Coupon Codes is "ABC111" with your current offers. If any customer type "ABC111" on your Coupon Input box then those all show your offer on their screen.
But mind it, you need a proper development.

See they are tied up with them through affiliate marketing. Once you are joined to their affiliate marketing program, you will get promotional mails from them regaring the current offers and its T&C. And you just need to show the same thing in your coupon website and redirect the user to the main site and get your commission.

I have always wanted to setup a successful comparison/coupon type website, but they are already way too many of them that you would never reach. That said, there are loads web hosting companies... still going strong nearly 8 years later. Coupon type site is quite different as code needs to be updated daily and so you would definitely need to get a good web developer on your side if you go this route. That will not come cheap.

Companies like Groupon do a lot of offline deals with companies whose coupons they offer. If you want to start a couponing site you're going to have to do it too. You'll have to put in as much time & effort offline, getting deals as online, promoting them.

This is really a nice idea. Although, there are many website, who already provide such types of services like offers and discount coupon code for various brands and e-commerce website like couponzguru, 27coupon, Cashback etc. You just need to set up contact with promotional and marketing teams of all brands to get information about each and every upcoming deal and discount. After posting each deal on your website you need to promote your own website on social media channel and in search engines also.
