Couponfield.com is a brand-new service that revolutionizes the way people think about and use local coupons. Instead of focusing on Internet-store promotional codes or grocery coupons, Couponfield.com collects offers from small, independent businesses, and thus far features coupons from over 500 small businesses. It is 100% free for any business—big or small—to post coupons in Couponfield.com, producing a level playing field for everyone. No posting fees, no per-click charges, no subscription fees–It’s entirely free.
“It’s very important to me that small businesses are able to compete against the ‘big box stores,’ and can easily communicate their best offers to consumers,” says Couponfield.com founder Rebecca Tyler. Because the service is free to businesses, they can post their best local coupons without any additional costs that can reduce margins. In short, both businesses and consumers win.
To date, Couponfield.com features more than 650 local coupons with a colorful range of offers. Some examples are the historic ships in Baltimore Harbor, a ghost tour in Tennessee, a charter fishing company in Miami, a pet supply store in Colorado, and a vast array of home improvement companies, beauty salons and fitness resources around the country. Because it’s free, most of these coupons have never been offered to the public before.
Couponfield.com is an easy and convenient tool for consumers to support local businesses, and is a natural fit for any buy-local or downtown revitalization campaign. While promotional codes for Internet stores are welcomed, the primary focus is on brick-and-mortar stores and independent service providers.
Creating a coupon with Couponfield.com requires no technical or artistic ability: Business owners simply provide a title and a description for their offer, and Couponfield does the rest. There are plenty of bells-and-whistles for more sophisticated needs, such as limiting the number of prints (for particularly compelling offers). Every coupon has its own unique ID to help prevent duplication. Couponfield even has a research center with helpful tips on creating compelling offers—those that are win-win for both business owners and consumers. This makes couponing a sustainable part of any consumer-oriented marketing plan.
Both businesses and consumers need to make it through difficult times together. By offering sensible coupons, businesses can help consumers stretch their budgets while remaining viable during the recession themselves. Because Couponfield.com is absolutely free, there’s every reason for any consumer-oriented business with local coupons to give it a try.
