San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
Although seventy-four percent of consumers now search multiple online coupon sources each week for deals (according to Shopper Technology Institute), the leading grocery coupon websites still carry fewer than 200 coupons for the more than 70,000 products found in an average supermarket.
Sarah Schloemer, president of the free grocery coupons website CommonKindness.com, believes this situation exists because of the high cost and questionable effectiveness of many online coupon programs, like those run by Groupon, Facebook, and Coupons.com.
She feels a lack of innovation or willingness to accommodate the needs of advertisers has left many brand managers waiting on the Internet sidelines for a better solution to emerge. Fortunately, that better coupon solution—the pay-per-sale model—has arrived.
“No other marketing tools create sales as quickly and inexpensively as the new pay-per-sale online coupon models, like the ones we provide at CommonKindness.com,” says Schloemer. “Coupons are great for introducing new products, attracting first-time purchasers, developing and rewarding customer loyalty, and economically advertising a brand.”
CommonKindness.com lets businesses easily create and track high ROI pay-per-sale coupons with no contracts, no loading fees, and no hidden charges. The easy-to-use coupon-loading interface makes it possible to create and publish an online coupon offer in just a few minutes, compared to the weeks or months needed to drop traditional print coupons.
All that is required to enter a coupon on CommonKindness.com is:

“We offer brands a better alternative to spending money on graphic arts, printers, distributors, or online coupon sites that charge for every coupon that is loaded and each time the coupon is printed,” said Schloemer. “CommonKindness.com offers a new kind of coupon business model that works better for everyone.”
